There's just enough voodoo lore here to introduce you to the history and culture of this spiritual practice and to tempt you to bring home a love potion or voodoo doll as a souvenir. Guided swamp, plantation and cemetery tours are available.

I would definitely come back. It's like a well written and much-loved book that you can touch the physical subject the author(s) are discussing. I can't help but feel like I need to reread it a few more times!

This was one of those stop in's and see what's going on places for us. But we ended up hanging out and talking for over 45 minutes. They have AUTHENTIC oils and so on. The lady at the front desk, whom I think might be the owner, is delightful and FULL of come backs if you want to banter a... More

I think this a must see in New Orleans! The museum is very small but informative (hard to read the stories if there are a lot of other people at the same time though..). It gives a good insight about the religion, it's history and practises even today. Educational and very interesting!

Fun activity if you have not been to New Orleans. Very hot in building but cool stuff to see. Takes only 15-20minutes

$5 entry fee. I didn't expect a whole lot, but this seemed more like a thrift store had dumped a bunch of stuff in two rooms. Maybe I just don't get the voodoo culture, but I wasn't impressed. We had looked at everything within 5-10mins. Maybe if it was a little more interactive and informative it would have been more... More

This is a small museum with only two rooms but there is a good room with good vibes then there is the dark room that you want to make sure the JuJu does not follow you out and home with you. So be sure to leave a little token in the red snake room just in case.

The room's are small, so don't try to navigate with large bags or several children in tow. There are several altars set up for prayer & offerings to each of the Loa. This museum also houses several actual photos & artifacts. Cool little tidbits of reading material along the way outlining the history & how "New Orleans" voodoo came about.... More

This museum is very small and crowded, chock full of artifacts and information about voodoo. Some people may find it creepy or scary, but I loved it. An interesting introduction to the religion of voodoo and its finer points. The lady at the front desk was friendly and informative.

This was real voodoo antiques set up and the folks there knew the history about voodoo and hoodoo. Great place to go to start your voodoo tours.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
