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.

First, let me say that I was thrilled and excited to see this mansion during my trip to New Orleans. The building itself is beautiful. To know the terrible history of the murders that took place in the attic increases one's curiosity of the mansion. Unfourtantley, you cannot go inside and you can only look at the outside of the...

This was one of our stops on a haunted tour. Our guide did a good job of hyping up the story of Madame Delphine and the gruesome details. So, it was creepy at night. I'm sure it was for effect but he didn't cross the street to walk near it or under the balcony and gave us the option to... More

I am a huge American Horror Story Fan, so when Season 3 came out I decided to visit NOLA and see the house LaLaurie actually lived in. As a historic site, it's a pretty big disappointment. The interior has been completely renovated in a contemporary style - destroying any hope that the site could be used as a museum or... More

Was very interesting. I new a lot about the house cause I've read every book I could find on this house. Only wish I could go inside and look around. It is a private resident of a oil man from Texas.

We walked to the Lalaurie Mansion from Bourbon Street. It is very close, and Royal street is beautiful. You cannot go inside, and I did not have any orbs appear in my picture, BUT it was worth the time it took to go there! If for nothing else but seeing such a historical part of New Orleans. We went at... More
