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.

Loved this! It's right in the French Quarter, only $5, and filled with lots of interesting info/altars. It's only two rooms and a hallway but it really gave you a great look of the history of Voodoo in New Orleans. There's info about different spirits/saints, what words mean and where they come from, and about different practices/meetings/etc in New Orleans.

If you have an extra 30-60 minutes, or if you've had a few drinks, or both, then this is a great stop. It is extremely small for a museum. And I'll grant you that at first glance it does all seem to be a mishmash of random things thrown together (and maybe it is), but once you dig deeper everything... More

A very informative and fun place for all ages. Not expensive and a shop in front where you can buy all sorts of interesting things.

the voodoo museum in the french quarter is well worth an hour. The displays, signs, and altars were well-done and very informative for us. New Orleans has its own voodoo culture that we all can appreciate.

Definitely worth $5! I thought it was really interesting and cool but the only weakness is how small it was and I was in and out in 20 minutes..

Small but interesting, definitely to be experienced as part of the voodoo tour to Congo Square and St Louis Cemetery. Cheers for NU'Awlons Natescott!

Check out the voodoo museum and take a tour -- guaranteed to be a creepy good time. We especially loved the tour to various places in town related to the history of voodoo.

This only costs 5.00, it is a small attraction. It is interesting to look at and read the history of the Voodoo culture. There is multiple shrines, the amazing thing is nothing gets touched. No coins, no beads no tribute is moved. You can tell nothing people leave to evoke or request favor from the spirits is disturbed. See for... More

This is barely a museum. Nothing is updated (which might be the point). It's basically two rooms full of printouts of wikipedia researched facts and numerous collected dolls. This is place is average at best just because it gives you something to do in the French Quarter during the day (besides drink) that only costs $5.00.

Several Voodoo related things here, some may be real, some questionable, some you may not want to question, also things to buy, and marvel and think about when visiting this part of the culture of New Orleans. You may skip this establishment, but if you do, you are missing one of New Orleans structures and it's off street entrance ways... More
