Overview

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.

This museum is very small and hot. Most of the exhibits looked like they were just thrown together. It is not worth your time even if it was free.

While it is only $5, I still think it is too much. It is two very small, cramped, dark and dirty rooms. There was not much there I found interesting. I went with a friend who just wanted company, but couldn’t even see a lot...More

This is a cramped, dirty and poorly lit place that looks like someone threw the refuse after Mardi Gras into two small rooms. The person who takes your money is surly and doesn't bother with any niceties at all, even a "good morning". Not worth...More

Was disappointed at how small the museum was, should have looked at TA before I went in! Was there for about 10 min and was done, honestly it’s not worth the hype.

If you've got absolutely nothing better to do (and don't mind wasting $5) then this 'museum' is a way to kill 5 minutes. When we arrived the waiting area looked packed, but we were ushered in by a woman dressed in long robes who quickly...More

As others have said, it’s cramped, dirty, has handmade signs, but if you want to see a few voodoo artifacts for $5 it’s not too bad. I’d not go again but it wasn’t a total waste.

Interesting as it’s all associated with Marie Laveau, the voodoo queen and high priestess of New Orleans. The relationship between slavery, the Catholic Church and voodoo is obvious, although not that well explained or presented. Marie Laveau was a free woman though. Her influence was...More

It's two small, cramped rooms as described by others. Only $5, so no big loss. Tons of stuff to see but difficult to read it all because the hallway is so narrow that you have to get out of the way so that other people...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 did not do the reading. I did not see anywhere in the museum to do one, either. It is very small. There are readings all around Jackson Square, though.
