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.

Not quite a museum, more like 3 small rooms piled high with what you would think was junk (cigarettes, liquor bottles, tampons, chapsticks). But for just $5 you can get a small intro into what voodoo is...I guess i was just expecting something else. Probably...More

It's more like a small store with two rooms in the back, which takes maybe ten minutes to finish viewing. But there's quite some information and interesting stuff to see. One could learn a lot about the Voodoo cultural heritage from Africa. And with one...More

You can be in and out within 15 minutes (5 of which you spend attempting to squeak past other people in the tiny hallway/rooms). This attraction allows as many people in as are present, so naturally, it gets super crowded and claustrophobic. There is some...More

2 tiny rooms with just junk inside - this is no museum. We were wondering how it only cost 5 bucks per person to enter, but after doing the "tour" even that amount seems too much for this place. Skip and do anything else literally!

It wasn't my favorite stop in New Orleans but it also wan't my least favorite. It is very small and can get crowded but some of the pieces were interesting. It did make me a bit nervous to walk through as I didn't want to...More

I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it either. There were some very interesting things to see inside but it was a bit crowded as more people came in.

The woman at the front desk was unfriendly and uninterested in welcoming guests. She refused to answer one of the paying guests questions and said that he should hire a tour guide if he wanted questions answered. The "museum" consists of 2 small dimly-lit rooms...More

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

I don't know for sure, but I'd guess it's because at night in New Orleans, some neighborhoods can become a little 'rowdy' with a lot of intoxicated tourists, and if a lot of drunks go stampeding through the museum, they... More
