About
Voodoo Authentica of New Orleans Cultural Center and Collections is not only a shop, but also a temple and educational space. Everyone working here is a practitioner of Voodoo, and everything in the shop (save the African and Haitian art pieces) are made by local practitioners, much of it actually being made right in the shop. If you have any questions, or even need a bit of spiritual guidance, any of our practitioners can help you out. If you're looking for a reading, stop on in or call, and one of our Priests will give you a spiritual consultation. If you're just genuinely interested in Voodoo and in need of more information, want to see some traditional dolls and spiritual products, or just need some advice on good places to eat, please stop on in! We'd love to see you here!

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Lovely shop
    This shop had a very calming atmosphere and a very positive energy. I was made to feel welcome and to ask any questions I had. This shop is not a kitschy tourist type but is meant to cater to people who are interested in true voodoo (which is mostly positive feeling/thinking/healing, not the negative casting a spell on someone stereotype and those looking for "real" trinkets, not the cheap swapmeet type). It is a rather small shop, but it has a good variety of products ranging from oils, herbs, and candles to jewelry, juju guardians, and various protective effigies. They do have some quaint alters set up in the back if anyone should want to send a prayer, etc. It looks like they did readings as well, but it was tucked away in a private spot that I couldn't really see from the shop. Prices are reasonable. It is definitely worth a peek, but please be respectful of this culture.

    I had one of the best spiritual readings in here!
    This is a wonderful shop with many options to buy spiritually related items. Voodoo is a religion long misunderstood, and just talking to the staff, you can understand it much better for what it really is. I wasn’t planning, but I decided to have a spiritual consultation last minute, and I’m so glad I did! I had a wonderful reading with Kamille, who is such an amazing person and provided an amazing reading. She was SO on point and brought me a lot of clarity and peace. I’m grateful to have met such beautiful souls like you, Kamille! Thank you for your outstanding work!

    Great shop!
    Visited this shop twice on a week stay in Nola, as it was that interesting. The 2nd time I went, I got a card reading, which was on point and informative. The reader was a man, i can't recall his name, but he was compassionate and nice. Staff was friendly and answered any questions. It's definitely worth checking out.

    Voodoo store for tourist and serious folk -- all comers
    We loved that you could buy all the spices, get your tarot read, or simply window shop all things voodoo and the like. Well done, as you move from room to room seeing cool stuff. Thanks

This is the only legit voodoo/reading place in the French Quarter. It’s not like most others that are there to entertain and put on a facade. Kamille is amazing. Worth it!

Fascinating place full of intriguing objects. Had an insightful reading from the lovely Camille. She's a generous and thoughtful presence.

I like how it was handmade items and not items bought on Amazon like some places. This place is the real deal. My daughter saw a spiritual reader here and felt guidance after the session.

Real voodoo store. Scent was over powering but so much to see. A real priestess was there which made it a memorable visit. Many alters with offerings. Wild culture.

The people here are so nice. They treat first timers who are just curious with the same respect they treat regular customers. If they don't have what you are looking for, it's safe to say you probably don't need it! Love the authenticity, the smell, and the vibe here.
