This is a must see for all especially the new generations coming up now very educational and sad at the same time but a very important piece of history that should never be forgotten

The museum was excellent. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, I believe, it was self-guided. I'm glad, as there was a certain member in my group that I wanted to keep away from. My only complaint is the actual bus that took us there. It was very uncomfortable with rattling windows that prevented me from being able to hear the video that was playing. Closed captioning would have been helpful. I initially got on a different Grayline charter headed to Oak Alley and it was a far better appointed bus. Given that the travel distance to each location is similar, I don't understand why Whitney had the crappy bus.

Easy and convenient
