the history of the place is cool but there are no tours of the mansion. It is not even marked so you just go off Google and other pictures. The feeling in the air is definitely different. I can't believe that bad stuff happened here. so sad for the ones lost.

We visited the Lalaurie Mansion as part of a Ghost Tour and were thrilled to have captured some paranormal activity on our pictures. Highly recommended for those who enjoy that type of thing!

After reading and hearing so much about it had to see this place for myself. I did not stay the night hear, so I can't comment on the interior or it's quality as a hotel. I will say, from the outside, it is a hauntingly beautiful structure. Even if you take away the sordid history of the mansion, it is... More

As many others have said, this is now a private residence and tours are no longer offered through the house. Another reviewer said that those seeking out the Lalaurie mansion for its history are gullible, since it has been rebuilt. I don't think that if a place is truly haunted, a fire and the reconstruction of the building remove the... More

The house is beautiful and creepy and not much to see. There is no tour of the house and no signs even indicating this is the Lalaurie Mansion. I just took a picture and walked around it and left. Still a very powerful experience just being on the walkway knowing how much history there is. But really, how much attention... More

I read about New Orleans a lot as my family roots are there, and the rich history really intrigues me. Ever since I saw the movie Interview with a vampire, I wanted to research the different so called haunted houses and location. One of the houses that caught my attention was the La Laurie house so, I decided to go... More

From the fame brought to it from American Horror Story, it seems everyone knows about this house now. I still have not found a way to see the inside but standing outside, seeing the house and hearing the stories from one of the many tour guides or even just looking it up yourself, it's amazing. SO much terrible, eerie history.

Not much to see here. It's a private residence and closed to the public. Supposedly haunted, and those who are looking can see weird things in the windows at night! Not worth a trip though.

As a fan of American horror story coven I came by the mansion. There are not any signs posted as it's a private residence. I literally took one pic and left.
