COVID-19 Update

In keeping with reopening guidelines of the state of Louisiana, and recommendations from the CDC, Whitney Plantation Museum is making the following adjustments to keep our staff and visitors safe.

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 all doors and handles, and any other surfaces that people may come into contact with.

Visitation Requirements and Guidelines

All of our staff will wear masks, and maintain a safe distance from visitors.

We are limiting capacity of the site so that our visitors may practice safe, physical distancing within the visitor center and the memorial grounds.

Visitors must wear a mask while inside of any structure on the site.

No cash will be accepted for purchases.

In order to limit physical contact, all tickets for tours must be purchased on-line. All tickets are for timed-entry only. If you arrive early for your tour, you must wait until your admission time to enter the museum.

All timed-entry tours have a capacity limit. If a particular timed-entry tour slot is sold out, you must purchase available tickets for another time.

Tickets purchased for timed-entry may not be transferred or combined with other times.

We are suspending guided tours until it is safe for our staff and visitors to be in close proximity. We are only offering self-guided, audio tours during this time.

We have cancelled all group tours for 2020. We will have more information towards the end of the year about when group tours will resume in 2021. Please check back in the Fall.
