Even though you cannot enter, just staring at the home from across the street will give you goosebumps. Walk there at night, but don't stand to close to the windows. Even though they are heavily draped, the fear of the curtain moving scared me enough to not put my face too close to the glass. It's crazy that only the... More

Sadly you cannot enter the mansion but many ghost tours include the story of the mansion. Can't even stand outside without being creeped out though!

This is a private residence so I'm not sure why it is considered an attraction. However, we did walk by and it is eerie. One person in our group got very bad vibes from this place. Not sure a place where evil took place should be considered a place to visit and take photos. The dead should be left alone,... More

As far as I know you're unable to take a tour of the mansion. Many ghost tours go by where they explain it's haunted past, which I'd like to do so one day at least. I was able to go by it and get a small history on it through a carriage tour which was nice and also learned that... More

In a world... where Ghost tours can take you far beyond haunted, there is a place called the Lalaurie Mansion. Nicholas Cage once owned it only to lose it to the IRS.( allegedly ) Evil once lived there with her husband they committed unspeakable acts. Now Go!!!

Privately owned, you cannot tour the LaLaurie Mansion, but it is beautifully restored and well worth a walk by. It's hard to believe such horrors happened at such a beautiful location.

We walked to the Mansion just because I had read so much about it. Its a beautiful house. Forgetting a bit of the negative story behind it, it was owned at different times to Nick Cage and also Johnny Depp, so that made it interesting. It is privately owned so you can't go in. But the beauty of it alone... More

I was visiting New Orleans for Wrestlemania and couldn't pass by this infamous house. I didn't do a tour with this included as I know a lot about the house already. It would have been great to have seen inside but just seeing the outside of the house was good enough for me,

My first visit, years ago, gave me bad dreams on occasion (you could say it haunted me). My second visit, my tour guide wouldn't walk more than half up the block. Nor would he tell us of any atrocity that may or may not have occurred. I got a blue orb in 2 pictures out of 20. Third time, I... More

If you desire a thrill, you've seen American Horror Story Coven, or you are interested in dark, gory history, this place is perfect for you. Get ready for chills, everybody. I would say the only downside is you can't get in... But the outside is really all you need to see for the shivers; night or day.
