A MUST SEE - Fantastic, educational and emotional. This is an experience I’m glad I got to explore. This museum is a self guided tour but it’s wonderful because you can move at your own pace

A Lasting Lesson - I was so moved that I barely took photos, most unusual for me. The atmosphere was very respectful and contemplative. The van driver gave excellent running commentary. I read all the text and learned lots which I really appreciate. Thank you.

Easy walk, great audio tour - Such an informative reading and audio tour. Very touching but they end it with asking you not to be angry or sad but informed. You can imagine it was a beautiful place at one time but at such a cost.

Informative and important tour - This was an informative tour. The history is dark, but I’m glad we went and learned more about it. The drive out was super interesting with awesome stories and interesting facts about Louisiana. I slept for the entire drive back! I highly recommend!
