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.

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.

Don't let the modest entrance fool you. The place is HUGE on the inside. Just try not to touch the Altar of Queen Marie. It is VERY bad luck. The museum holds actual items which were used in real voodoo rituals. There is much more...More

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.

While this place in tiny, if you read everything you can still learn a lot. I enjoyed the experience but I can understand how some wouldn't. It does not have videos or state of the art visual equipment. It is little old displays with explanations.

We spent around 15 minutes here. It's a tiny place with a hallway and two small rooms with objects such as altars and other items in. We learnt a bit about voodoo but both my husband and I found it to be an uncomfortable environment,...More

This was a small "museum" that consisted of two dirty rooms behind a store front. It was too small to pass others in the short hallway. There was no description of the exhibits and it felt very dirty. The incense smell was overwhelming and we...More

If you are interested in the history of Voo Doo in New Orleans, I would suggest a Google search. Save yourself $5 and you will likely learn more. This “museum” consists of 2 rooms and a hallway filled with junk “altars” and a few framed...More

While this place is historic and somewhat informative, I didn’t find it worth the $5 to get in. It’s just a couple of rooms in a very small house with artifacts and various paragraphs of information on the walls. I didn’t learn anything extra here...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
