School Tours

Step Beyond the Classroom

Discover Oak Alley Plantation, the Grande Dame of the Great River Road, and explore 25 historic acres to see legacies left by those who once resided. Built in 1839, Oak Alley remains a testimonial to the old South's golden age. Students are invited to step back into antebellum elegance and tour the Big House with a trained Historical Interpreter in period dress. The 'Civil War' exhibit offers a glimpse into the impact the Civil War had in this region. During their self guided walking tour of the historic grounds, students will witness reconstructed slave quarters and tour the 'Slavery at Oak Alley' exhibit.

Box lunches are available for purchase for groups who schedule this in advance. Students are also welcome to enjoy their school lunch in our picnic area. Seats are not reserved, but are on a first come / first served basis.

Please contact or email Gary Dauphin for discounted rates, menus or to make your reservation.
