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.

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.

Little more than another shop with some displays mixed in with vodoo items for sale. Nice air conditioning to walk thru with a friendly host . it is free to walk thru and look around.

We have been to NO many times but had never bothered to see this little museum. We went because we didn't have anything else to do at the time. Well---it was small but very informative. Only three rooms and a hall, but it is filled with voo doo artifacts from the area. The really great part is the amount of... More

This museum is only $5. It can take 10 minutes to 30 minutes max. (Its essentially 3 rooms) That said, its the only voodoo museum really, very likely in the country. If you have some degree of interest in Voodoo, this is a place to drop by. It'll help bring this religion/art to life, and also help you understand New... More

It's only $5 and totally worth it. Its not huge and not unlimited info but the displays and alters are neat to look at and add to. Bring a picture or a small trinket for a prayer offering. Some history but this is more of photo op.

Stumbled upon this museum while walking around the area. It was $5 to walk around (which I wouldn't pay more than that). We were greeted by Madame Cinnamon who was welcoming and funny. She handed us a sheet of paper with information/background that answered some questions we had about VooDoo. The museum is a converted house with just 3 rooms.... More

Not much to it, but interesting. There is minimal info, but it's cool to see some of the items inside. It was enough to make the $5 worth it. Unique experience.

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.
