You cannot wander around the ground, i.e. see this tree canopy without a tour guide - it is fenced off. There are three tours a day at 9:30, 11:30 and 2. You have to stay with the guide. I went at noon and was unable to do anything other than see it from the road. There is a small museum in the ticket office. It's still worth the visit but the tour seems like the best bet if you want to really see anything.

A long drive if you're staying in NOLA, but totally worth it!
