A prior owner of the LaLaurie mansion was my boss a few years back. I worked for him several years after he'd already sold it to Nicholas Cage. I asked him if he'd ever experienced anything unusual there. He laughed and said no, nothing at all. He told me how he'd loved to sit on the balcony with a glass... More

Yes, it is the Lalaurie mansion but it's renovated, had the third floor added on and the exterior changed to the point of unrecognizabilty. So much so when the producers of American Horror Story-Coven shot the exterior shots down the block at the Gallier House. Privately owned, no, not by Nick Cage, he lost it to the IRS in 09,... More

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,
