Really creepy.

We did a ghost tour our first night that stopped here. The kids loved it and wanted to go back over and over to look for ghosts in the windows. It's worth the walk.

Nice old house, but no tours or anything to do inside here. Many of the city tours stop by the outside to tell stories of the horrors that happened here and that were dramatized in American Horror Story: Coven.

First let me say that the reason only three stars and not four is because they need to open up for inside tours and give A REAL look at the bloody history. So much has been Lost and changed to fit "Hollywood" storylines. Is it haunted? Probably. If the stories are true then it almost has to be. Standing outside... More

We went here on one of the Witch's Brew tours, and it was interesting to say the least. The history behind this house will leave you thoroughly creeped out and disgusted. My only advice is to not go there alone after dark, simply for safety reasons. Tours are the way to go if you want the full experience and don't... More

Good to know this spot if you're walking the Quarter and want to point it out. If you're stopping here from an interest in American Horror Story: Coven, yes, this is the actual Lalaurie mansion. If you're looking for the fictionalized Lalaurie mansion from Coven, you'll want to visit the Gallier House on Royal Street and the Hermann-Grima House on... More

Wish you could actually tour the building. :( You can see thru into the court yard but that's about it. Nothing really. But just looking at the architecture was cool

This place has a terrible history, as we learned from the third season of American Horror Story and during our ghost tour. It is a beautiful, grand building but you couldn't pay me to sleep there knowing the history of it! I do wish they would do tours!

Like the other reviews, know your history before you go or go on a tour. You only see the outside of the house as there are no tours of the inside. It is quite grand and it's worth a walk by.

An historic spot, but unless you are on a ghost tour, you'll have to do your own research. No tours or information offered at the house itself. An interesting house in the Quarter, but we were hoping for more.

Wonderful story of what happened here. There were people staying there talking to us from the balcony. Can't wait for the third season of Horror stories on Netflix.
