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.

A fun taste of voodoo history

This is a fun stop, not too expensive ($5 per person). It doesn't take too long to get through the exhibit. You can easily do it in 15 or 30 min depending on how much you read.

Do you believe or not? I am still not sure!! Check it out, it's pretty cool!! Leave something on the altars....but do not take anything. Not expensive at all.

This museum is a very small home with numerous rooms you go through on a self-guided tour. Lots of extremely interesting things here and many amazing altars. Definitely worth seeing and they let you take pictures. The woman up front was very nice. It also has a small gift shop with voodoo dolls, books, candles, and gris-gris bags.

The museum is housed in a small home and there are lots of interesting and historical things to see and read in there. There are statues and Voodoo women and spirits you can give donations to. In the front, there is a tiny gift shop and you can purchase gris gris bags, books, Voodoo dolls and other merchandise. Friendly staff... More

this little two room museum is interesting and for a $5 admission- go for it and bring change, trinkets and gifts for the gods as the place is covered in little altars

this museum needs some help putting together a better presentation in an educational fashion. most people have either no idea or the wrong idea about the vudu religion and how it came to become voodoo.

This is a very small museum, but only $5 to get in and it doesn't take all day to get round! There are some interesting stories and explanations here although there could be more to explain what it's all about. That said, apparently voodoo is verbal so little is written down and therefore agreed upon. It's an interesting spot for... More

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
