Wonderful and educational experience for the family. St Joseph’s was closed so we went to Destrehan instead. So beautiful and Evelyn was amazing. Whitney plantation and Slave Museum are a must. Our tour guide Isabel was phenomenal.

Harriet was our guide and she was fantastic! About 90 minutes walking around the grounds learning about life in plantation, it was very interesting.

A gut-wrenching, searing narrative of slavery, unvarnished. The museum itself is worth a good 45 mins, to be taken in before or after the 90 minute guided tour. It is a must-see for everyone, to understand the history of slavery in the USA.
