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.

If you have an extra ten minutes and ten bucks to spare, and happen to be walking by - check it out. The tributes are interesting. Don't go out of your way to see it, it's two bedroom sized rooms filled with photos, mementos and altar/tributes. I did get a laugh from the person who wrote a wish for world... More

This place is LITERALLY 2 small rooms and a hallway. THAT'S IT! Should be called "World's Smallest Museum". It was one of the few places we had actually planned out, walked forever to get there and then walked through it in 5 minutes. Awful. Unsure if the items in there are authentic as it looks thrown together and there is... More

Granted, I have never been to a voodoo museum, so I really have nothing to compare or base my opinion on other than I (and my boyfriend) enjoyed our visit to this little museum. Every square inch of this tiny place was filled with items and paraphernalia that represented the history of voodoo. There were offerings, prayers, and tokens of... More

I read a book on New Orleans Voodoo a few years ago, so I was very interested in visiting this museum. While small, it has plenty of things to see. A good history of Voodoo and it's roots. It has neat, if not a little scary, looking alters. It doesn't take too long visit and it's good to learn a... More

I thought this was a fun stop during the day. It wasn't really what I had expected. It is very low budget but had a lot of interesting things to look at. It felt "authentic".

While it is only 2 rooms I still found it quite interesting, as all the artifacts did have little explanations. This is a great place if you are wondering around trying to find something to fill in the time this is a great place to duck in and experience something different. If you were interested in getting an in depth... More

There are no tours. Just wander around 3 rooms which takes 5 minutes. There are no explanations. Skip it.

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.
