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.

We enjoyed our visit through the museum. It was really interesting to learn about the voodoo religion. There were some interesting displays, including altars and a lot of history. The museum itself isn’t very large. However, it’s well worth the $5 entrance fee. The only complaint I have is that I wish it was larger.

I thought this would be a fun and different place to visit. It's just two rooms of voodoo stuff crammed into a claustrophobic old house. It took about 10 minutes to see everything. Fortunately, the admission is only $5.

Worth the small admission. Lots of interesting reading and artifacts. Very small so if it is crowded it can get cramped

Small, cramped, had to use the bathroom. Daughter liked it, anything to get out of the Nawlins August heat.

It was an interesting place to visit. Kind of small but for 5 dollars it had a lot of paintings and artifacts to look at and read about.

This quaint and quirky collection of curiosities, memorabilia, altars and artifacts from local VooDoo and HooDoo goes as far back as Marie Laveau. It’s a small but an interesting old cottage museum in the French Quarter with two rooms and a hallway packed with displays. It’s enjoyable and educational for adults and kids alike, but it will take time to... More

The museum itself was very cramped in the building which it is located and that is the reason I chose to rate it a 4. The information that was crammed into this small space on the other hand was great. There were a lot of different things to read about voodoo and hoodoo, along with a variety of different artifacts... More

It's small and quite hot inside, but for $5 you see a lot of historic voodoo pieces. Really quick stop, about 15 minutes. The best thing about the visit is the sheet on voodoo history you get from the front desk staff.

Small and a lot of stuff crammed in, but interesting. It's worth a walk-through if you're in the area.

So, lets get this out of the way - this is not really a museum. It is a small couple of rooms full of oddities. Then why did I rate it excellent? Because there is nothing like it elsewhere. If you pay attention, you can learn some of the real history of Voodoo. This is much less hokey than other... More
