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.

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!

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

The other reviews are right, it’s small! Maybe three small rooms over filled with stuff! They could easily expand and spread the artefacts out which would probably make it a more pleasurable experience given that it was so small and too many people were in...More

Well, we were in New Orleans. So why not? The "museum" is small, a few rooms and a hallway. $5 cover. No restrictions on photography, which is a nice change. Lots of artifacts and stories on the walls. It's entertainment! And better than the Museum...More

They have the coolest stuff and our tour guide, Nu'Awlins Nate was super knowledgeable. The cost is definitely worth the admission and tour, especially if you add on the guided cemetery tour. It's a cool place & Nate made it awesome.

The place is small and maybe three rooms if that. It is basically a collection of junk that might be mistaken for voodoo artifacts. To me it was more about an upsell for the additional $2 for the wish and some other nonsense they brief...More

Dusty, old and smaller than we expected but it was completely worth the 5$ admission for the crowded self guided tour. Host was gracious and very friendly.

Not much to see here and not a lot of space to see it. It was very tight quarters with only one way in and one way out. Lots of nicknacks to look at. Not recommended for the claustrophobic.

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

Posted admission is 7$ for adults and slightly less for kids but they often change it based on a whim I've found. we paid 8$ for two adults the day we went.

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
