Houmas House Plantation offers several options for tours. The guided mansion tour is 60 minutes and offered daily from 9:30 am – 7:00 pm providing visitors the chance to understand daily life on this Sugarcane Plantation. Using artifacts, antique furniture and original artwork, a guide in period dress leads guests from room to room telling stories of past owners and their legacy, the mansion’s architectural evolution, and how the Mississippi River helped grow this modest manor house into the grand estate it is today.
The mansion is completely handicap accessible and each room provides several places to sit throughout the guided tour. If staying in New Orleans and seeking transportation, we suggest renting a car and visiting multiple plantations while seeing Houmas House. Itineraries with easy driving directions are available.
Uber and Taxis are not reliable to and from New Orleans or Baton Rouge.
