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.

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.

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

Fascinating little place, packed full of authentic voodoo relics. Entry fee $5.00 was worth it to look around. There was a man there who was giving info to the participants that was knowledgeable.

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.

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.
