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.

A very unique museum, although small and quite cramped. How much of it is genuine I don't know. But I did learn the origin of the word "jazz"!

The Voodoo Museum is a very small, cosy and a little creepy museum, but very interesting in terms of seeing pictures and artifacts of the history of voodoo. It is different from regular museums, and less "professional" and not an typical academic museum, but this is what made it so charming and a very interesting experience for us. Very friendly...

This is a small museum consisting of two rooms. If there are a few people in it, it is crowded. We were given a paper when we went in that was supposed to explain the museum. Problem was it would take too much time to read the information, so we just went into the rooms to see the exhibits. The... More

The museum is really small, consist only of two small rooms. There were some interesting exhibits. But all in all i can't say that I learnt a lot about Voodoo. Actually I couldn't even tell you exactly what it is...

The voodoo museum is a privately home grown museum in the French quarter which gives the impression of being someone's private collection of pictures and artifices. It's just 3 rooms packed with things to see and read. Worth a visit but not the most organised museum in terms of telling a "story". It is however interesting and worth it if... More
