I could have stayed here all day. Very interesting. The house wasn't original, but the Slave Quarters are. The plantation itself is beautiful. Must see.

Tickets are all-inclusive. Gullah presentation at one of the slave cabins was informative and very moving. Guides are interesting and well-informed.

Such a beautiful building and the coloured tour guide was terrific as was the Gullah presentation.. but what about the rest....

No signs telling the walker what they were seeing..the closed cotton building ?????

A complete lack of good books or gifts

Butterfly cafeteria..... what a joke.. musty and run down,

Run down wash rooms.

Tours listed that no guide showed up for.

Unless one saw the Gullah presentation one would not have known that the slave building were only a third of those that were actually there, or that only the special slaves lived in these brick buildings with the lessor slaves living out in shacks on the plantation.

We firstly did the house tour,which was ok but the house has been rebuilt and is still a residence so you don't get to see too much of it.
The slave cabins are interesting and portray the lives of the slaves but the highlight of the visit was the Gullah theatre presentation at the last slave cabin in the row.Gullah is short for Angola and includes stories,songs and an insight into what a terrible thing slavery was.Our narrator/performer was Jackie and she was inspirational,what an incredible talent she has,don't miss it !

In October 2012 my wife and I visited Boone Hall. Seeing the Avenue of Oaks up close was incredible. We visited 2 plantations on this trip to Charleston. One of the things that made Boone Hall my favorite is that you are charged 1 admission fee per person and then the entire plantation is yours to experience. For the cost of the $19.00 admission, we took a tram ride around the property, took a house tour, visited the slave cabins and took a free lecture on the Gullah culture.
The property is beautiful but I would recommend a visit in the spring and summer when the flowers are in bloom. This is a must see. In Charleston, visit the Visitors Center for discount coupons.
