    The house is absolutely beautiful and the gardens are amazing!! Make sure to watch out for the wildlife though.

    Magnolia is beautiful, but it occurred to my group that you don't have to pay for most of the attractions. There are alternative paths to literally everything. Btw, Dick was an awesome boat guide!!

    Attended a wedding at the plantation. What beautiful venue!

    Awesome gardens. Go on a cooler day otherwise it's going to be a really hot and sweaty walk. Make sure to bring the cameras because there is plenty of wildlife and flowers to take pictures of!

    Animals are fun and the grounds are pretty, but the tour of the house was disappointing. Our tour guide was miserable, like listening to a lecture about molecular biology from a cinder block.

    Worth every penny. Nice bathrooms with AC. For better or worse make sure you keep your eyes peeled wild life is everywhere.

    The map provided at the ticket counter isn't helpful. Just get lost and discover the gardens on your own. You never know what amazing views you'll find.

    The Cabin Tours are a must do on your visit here - very educational; we opted for the boat tour rather than the Audubon Swamp Garden to get a quick, guided overview of the swampland

    Audubon Swamp-make sure to slowly wait to enter code in. If you mess up wait a minute.

    Great trip through history. There's a basic fee to get in then there are separate fees for the house tour, cabin tour, tram ride, etc. We toured the house, gardens & zoo. It was fantastic.

    Did the House Tour and the Cabins Tour. Really enjoyed both! They leave at set times, so bring snacks and games if you have small children.

    Be sure to tour the Audubon Swamp Garden. It is amazing. Don't miss the African American cemetery.

    Is it just me or does it seem like they're hiding the slave history of this place a bit...? If you don't want to pay extra for the slave hut tour you can see one yourself to the left of the snack shop

    Beautiful place to get married. I had a fantastic March wedding at the Carriage House.

    Be sure to tour the entire Audubon Swamp Garden. We enjoyed it even more than the main grounds of the plantation. Amazing wildlife, great for photowalks!
