COVID-19 Update

Whitney Plantation Museum is making the following adjustments to keep our staff and visitors safe during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • We have contracted with multiple companies to keep the visitor center and structures clean and sanitized after each day of business. During our hours of operation, we have implemented a regular sanitation schedule, which includes: regular wiping down of doors and handles, and any other surfaces that people may come into contact with.
  • We are limiting capacity of our site to ensure safe social distancing.
  • We have restricted access to the interiors of historic structures. Including the big house, detached kitchen, and slave cabins.
  • We are not allowing group tours at this time.
  • We have suspended all staff-led tours.

Visitation Requirements and Guidelines

  • You must download the free “Whitney Plantation” app on your mobile device to take a tour.
  • Masks are required for visitors within all museum structures.
  • We are not accepting cash for purchases.
