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.

I don't see why so many people leave low reviews. It's not the Smithsonian, it's a $5 attraction in the French Quarter that teaches about Voodoo History. Kinda small but have 2 main rooms & a hallways- lots of working altars & information. Great place...More

This is the most unexpectedly interesting couple of hours that I've had in a while. Having greater knowledge of the voodoo culture also makes NOLA, a more interesting place. It's small, and a little ramshackle. But that's so appropriate.

We knew before going it wasn't the best museum, but for $5.00 admission, we decided to go (it was a rainy day). You walk into a small room with a shop. You pay the admission fee to the person behind the table and go through...More

It is small. But, it has an interesting historical perspective of the voo doo religion and for 5 bucks it is time worth spent.

USD5 per person to enter the area. I had read some good/bad reviews so not expecting too much. Some historical information although the validity/accuracy of such information is to be disputed. Good photo opportunity for altars/pictures as most voodoo shops do not allow photos to...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
