There's just enough voodoo lore here to introduce you to the history and culture of this spiritual practice and to tempt you to bring home a love potion or voodoo doll as a souvenir. Guided swamp, plantation and cemetery tours are available.

This museum is essentially 3 rooms, a hallway display and a gift/book shop. Good examples of alters and Gris-Gris. $5 admission. Worth a half hour or 45 minutes at most. Some displays worthy of photos, which are allowed.

Save your $5 & go somewhere else. The best part of the visit is the Visitors Guide they give you to read while you tour their 2 rooms. The info on the guide is interesting if you have no knowledge of Voodoo history but you don't even get to keep it!

Now this place rocked! Excellent value and the woman at the front was great. She didn't push her sales on us and just let us be. We really, really, enjoyed this museum and the atmosphere inside and out. It was very cheap too and maybe 10$ for the two of us? We spent some time inside and there is so... More

This it's a very nice place to stop at New Orleans for their culture of voodoo, they have an atmosphere of the historical background of their basic culture of voodoo history.

Might sound interesting but it's 2 rooms full of junk at $5 a head. Go someplace else. This really is a dump.

I guess I had something more in mind when I walked in to this "museum". You are not allowed to take pictures inside. Its really just a small cramped store. I did not find anything that I could not live without so I left without making a purchase. I thought for sure I would find a trinket or gift worth... More

I visited this museum on a Saturday afternoon with my boyfriend. For $5, I felt it was totally worth the money. It's pretty small but there's tons of fascinating information about the spirits on the walls. Totally worth the five bucks. Oh and this one allows you to take all the pictures you want!

We spent 4 dollars a person to go in and look at garbage people left behind as they were hoping different events would not happen to them. It was not worth the money. We laughed the entire time there is 3 rooms to tour

This museum is very small, but has some interesting artifacts. Maybe not the best for small or young children. Some of the artifacts are human remains and it is very small and can be crowded. However, it is a good way to learn a little about voodoo and it's importance to NOLA.

It's two-rooms crammed with dusty stuff. You're handed a plastic slip-covered paper to read as you walk through the tiny two rooms. The information is stuff you could find on wikipedia and doesn't have much to do with what you're looking at. There was a voodoo tour going on as we first entered and the tour guide's stories were great.... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
