About
Voodoo Authentica of New Orleans Cultural Center and Collections is not only a shop, but also a temple and educational space. Everyone working here is a practitioner of Voodoo, and everything in the shop (save the African and Haitian art pieces) are made by local practitioners, much of it actually being made right in the shop. If you have any questions, or even need a bit of spiritual guidance, any of our practitioners can help you out. If you're looking for a reading, stop on in or call, and one of our Priests will give you a spiritual consultation. If you're just genuinely interested in Voodoo and in need of more information, want to see some traditional dolls and spiritual products, or just need some advice on good places to eat, please stop on in! We'd love to see you here!

The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

    Lovely shop
    This shop had a very calming atmosphere and a very positive energy. I was made to feel welcome and to ask any questions I had. This shop is not a kitschy tourist type but is meant to cater to people who are interested in true voodoo (which is mostly positive feeling/thinking/healing, not the negative casting a spell on someone stereotype and those looking for "real" trinkets, not the cheap swapmeet type). It is a rather small shop, but it has a good variety of products ranging from oils, herbs, and candles to jewelry, juju guardians, and various protective effigies. They do have some quaint alters set up in the back if anyone should want to send a prayer, etc. It looks like they did readings as well, but it was tucked away in a private spot that I couldn't really see from the shop. Prices are reasonable. It is definitely worth a peek, but please be respectful of this culture.

    I had one of the best spiritual readings in here!
    This is a wonderful shop with many options to buy spiritually related items. Voodoo is a religion long misunderstood, and just talking to the staff, you can understand it much better for what it really is. I wasn’t planning, but I decided to have a spiritual consultation last minute, and I’m so glad I did! I had a wonderful reading with Kamille, who is such an amazing person and provided an amazing reading. She was SO on point and brought me a lot of clarity and peace. I’m grateful to have met such beautiful souls like you, Kamille! Thank you for your outstanding work!

    Great shop!
    Visited this shop twice on a week stay in Nola, as it was that interesting. The 2nd time I went, I got a card reading, which was on point and informative. The reader was a man, i can't recall his name, but he was compassionate and nice. Staff was friendly and answered any questions. It's definitely worth checking out.

Best location to visit for this type of store in New Orleans. As the name implies, it is authentic. The woman was very helpful; she took time to explain things to me, despite the phone ringing off the hook which she would answer, but request them to call back as she was busy, which I really appreciated. She told me the things I need to do when I get home with the items I purchased. Hands down better than any of the other similar type stores.

What better souvenir/keepsake to remember New Orleans by than a voodoo doll? Before I even arrived I knew that I would want a voodoo doll and looked up good places for them. Voodoo Authentica had good reviews so I figured I would end up here. However, when wandering around town I did look at other shops but their stuff didn't look so great. On my last day in town I made it a point to come here and I was glad I did. They have a wonderful selection of voodoo items for reasonable prices. Yes, it's more expensive than other places but the quality is much better.

Is on a side street and the doorway is small but if you are even a little bit interested in finding out more about Voodoo make a trip over here. Every time we have been in here staff are very knowledgeable, willing to share information and help you out. Not spooky or creepy at all!!

We had emailed from Australia to make a booking and they'd offered us a time for 26/3/23. I wrote back right away to confirm 2 bookings for my husband and I and then never heard back. I emailed again to confirm, and we didn't hear back so we showed up for our allocated time and they said they had no booking noted. I showed them the emails and they did nothing to try and rectify the situation. We went to Hex instead.

I had a psychic tarot reading with Kamille and as someone who has read tarot for 5 years, it was completely accurate! She is the real deal. I got a lot of clarity around the topic I asked about and she had great energy the whole time!

She was also spiritually responsible in terms of cleansing the space and both of us before the reading, starting with a prayer of intention, and closing with a prayer of gratitude for the messages received. She has a great heart, and my reading with her was the highlight of my trip to New Orleans!

Nothing short of amazing. Zaar did my tarot card reading and quite literally brought me to tears. I gave him zero information to go off of and he nailed it. Hours later and I’m still in awe of the reading

My favorite store in the quarter! If you are looking for a real voodoo store experience, this is it. No need to go anywhere else! Visited 3 times during my 4 day stay in NOLA. The last day I was hoping to get a reading with Kamille before heading back home but we ran out of time. I connected with Kamille while shopping the day before and regretted not booking a reading with her.Can't wait to visit NOLA again and will most definitely be back to Voodoo Authentica!!
