Good place to understand more about the religion but it is small, dark, dirty... not explanations at all just reading.

This was a nice place to visit and see examples of Voodoo altars and learn a little about the history as well. A very enjoyable visit.

I would have been happier if would have kept my 5 bucks. Very small, not much information. Let's say I would recommend if it's your 30th day visiting and it's a rainy day.

$5 to go into two rooms and read what you could get off Wikipedia. Perhaps the $19 cemetry tour they offer will provide more of an experience. There isn't much to the museum itself though. If you are in New Orleans and you need to tick the 'Voodoo' box, but you're on a tight schedule, then yes- go for it.

You pay $5 to walk into 2 rooms the size of a large bathroom and a hallway that is about 5 feet long. It takes about 10 minutes to look at everything g. It's quaint but not close to being a museum.

Today we went to the N.O. Historic Voodoo Museum not really knowing what to expect. I was able to buy some of my witchy supplies at an affordable price which is always a plus. The atmosphere gives off a voodoo vibe. The museum teaches you about authentic voodoo and the famous Marie Laveau. The tour guide we had was great.... More

$5/person isn't bad asking price to see some of the neat stuff in this itty bitty museum/collection. Admittedly, there isn't much exposition - though there is some scattered throughout. I did some Googling while inside and was perfectly content for a bit.

Wanted to go to this place, one of the things I really wanted to see in the Quarter on our short trip, so one day as we were running around we made our way over there... it was just after 5 pm and I figured we had plenty of time since on their WEBSITE it says they close at "6... More

It is worth the $5 entry fee if nothing else a way to kill time and learn some interesting information. This is a very small museum and don't expect a guided tour. I don't think I would put this on my list of things to do in New Orleans although if you stumble across it, try it out.
