from Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site
Go beyond the myths of the American South at Laura Plantation, where intimate, firsthand accounts explore the lives of four generations of one Louisiana Creole family, both free and enslaved. Laura’s new, permanent exhibit examines in biographical detail the lives of Africans on the plantation, from enslavement into the 20th century.
In the heart of Plantation Country only 50 minutes from New Orleans, the fully guided experience includes the Big House, gardens & original 1840s slave cabins.
Laura is open daily from 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM except for major holidays. The first tour of the day begins at 10AM with tours beginning approximately every 40 minutes thereafter until the last tour of the day at 4:00 PM.
Tours en français tous les jours à 11h, 13h et 15h. (Tours in French everyday at 11 AM, 1 PM, and 3 PM.)
