I missed this place my first time in New Orleans but didn't miss much. It is not open to the public and not marked in any way so it looks just like another large house in the Quarter. Not worth making a special trip to see.

Excellent place to visit on your own without a tour guide. Research the stories available online, go for a walk and enjoy the evening with a friend or lover as you drunkenly rehearse bastardized tales of what was once there.

The "ghost tour" made so many claims that you have to be brainless to accept. Know many neighbors near the house and NOTHING even remotely close to any described events occur there .....except to the gullible. A waste of our time and money.

Walked by and took some pictures knowing the history of Lalaurie Maison, for my surprise, when I added some bright to the pictures I discover a ghostly shape sitting on the edge of the balcony by the 3rd window. Check the pictures.

This is a great place to stroll by if you happen to know the history. If not, then read up on it or take one of the many haunted/ghost/oddity tours that stop by the mansion and explain. I would try to avoid walking by between 8pm and 11pm just because that place is swimming in seas of people on those... More

Such a horrid history to this place and it felt morbid just wanting to go near the site, but that's what we did one drizzly early NOLA morning. Bring a private residence now, a walk past is about all you can do. But still we felt it a must-see. We would have walked right past if it wasn't for the... More

Beautiful but is privately owned so you only get a taste of it from the outside. Got a little history of it on Ghost City Tours, but nothing that substantial.

and open to interpretation. Lalaurie Mansion is currently a private residence dating back 200+ years. Spooky place with creepy history.

This is one of the nicest looking buildings in the French Quarter but once you learn of what happened inside it becomes one of the most creepiest and evil places in the world.

The Lalaurie Mansion is very easily missed. Its a beautiful home and if you read the history of the mansion you can't help but feel goosebumps standing near it. It appears as the house was bought and nicely remodeled, I must say, but other than that you cannot access to the inside. Do not expect much and be clearly on... 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.
