Lots of history

and open to interpretation. Lalaurie Mansion is currently a private residence dating back 200+ years. Spooky place with creepy history.

Beautiful but is privately owned so you only get a taste of it from the outside. Got a little history of it on Ghost City Tours, but nothing that substantial.

This is one of the nicest looking buildings in the French Quarter but once you learn of what happened inside it becomes one of the most creepiest and evil places in the world.

The Lalaurie Mansion is very easily missed. Its a beautiful home and if you read the history of the mansion you can't help but feel goosebumps standing near it. It appears as the house was bought and nicely remodeled, I must say, but other than that you cannot access to the inside. Do not expect much and be clearly on... More

If you are like me, the type of person who is thrilled by just looking at a place and thinking about what happened there, the Lalaurie Mansion is a great place to check off the list. The stories of the atrocities committed by Madame Lalaurie made this a place I had to see when I visited New Orleans. Just know... More

Although everyone in town has this idea that the place is haunted. I have never seen on bit of evidence. That I could not debunk. Get over the Coven story it's not real. Although there is a fraction of truth about the going on there ,most people will tell you it a story made up to sell you oil products... More

This is not open to the public, but we researched the history of the city and building before our trip so we wanted to see it. It was eerie just standing near it and knowing the terrible things that went on inside, and it was even creepier at night. Really, it doesn't look much different than the other buildings in... More

As others have said, the LaLaurie Mansion is privately owned and not open to the public. It's beautiful architecture and sinister history makes it worth a visit. This Mansion was once the tallest building in the French Quarter and the site of many social events in the early 1800's thanks to the evil owner Delphine LaLaurie. Read about her and... More

Worth seeing if you are in NOLA. This mansion is beautiful. It's a shame it's not a museum, I'd definitely pay to see the inside.

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.
