In these uncertain times, our mission continues.

Whitney Plantation’s mission is to educate the public about the history of slavery and its legacies. Now more than ever, our mission of education is critical. Whitney Plantation helps foster understanding about our nation’s troubling history.

Like many museums, Whitney Plantation suffered tremendous financial losses due to the coronavirus pandemic. Whitney Plantation is a 501(c)(3) that depends on public support. Please consider making a donation to help support our mission. Donations help us to fund research initiatives, develop interpretive and educational materials, maintain our grounds and 22 historical structures, and pay our staff.

If you would like to visit us in the future, we encourage you to purchase a Gift Card, which can be used personally or given to friends and family.

We hope to see you soon,

– Whitney Plantation
