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 museum is not very big, however they fit a lot of history into the space they have. Some very interesting urban legends and voodoo facts to be learned. Only $5 to get in and worth the price. Takes about and hour to read and look through it all.

There were two rooms and a hallway covered from top to bottom with stuff. But I couldn't exactly get much history out of it. They had 8x10 printouts that were framed next to a few things but it was a little confusing. Don't go with a lot of people. It was cramped with just me and my husband.

A great little museum packed with artifacts and alters. Lots to see. The very nice lady who did the introduction was friendly, funny, and informative. The gift shop is nice as well. Totally worth the $5 admission fee.

This is a tiny 3 room store. The idea is cool and there are some neat things but definitely not worth it if you are rushed for time or trying to save $. It was only $5 but we were through it in less than 10min.

No, it's not the WWII Museum, but that's not what you're going here for. You get a genuine, authentic education on voodoo, it's history, and what it's all about. Pretty much impossible to get more out of your $5 in NOLA (but be sure to pop over to LeFitte's for a Hurricane after).

I got what I expected. You will not spend a lot of time here. The gift shop is about as interesting as the museum itself. So you could bypass the $5 admission and just look in the gift shop for something interesting. It is dark inside the museum, making it difficult to read anything.

Interesting info, good for a quick thing to do. Recommend that you attend a Voodoo tour first so much of the museum makes sense.

The Skinny: Parking- street if you can find it Price- $5 per person Time- 20minutes Gift shop- yes This museum consists of 2 rooms and a hallway. I originally read about it in my Fodor travel book and it piqued my interest. I don't know anything about voodoo and thought where better to learn than in New Orleans. It's pretty... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
