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.

Authentic Is Correct
Aug 2021
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.

Interesting stop
Apr 2021
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!!

Every part of this store felt authentic, as its namesake. The energy inside and out is overwhelming. I will be back again!

Love Voodoo Authentica! Don't go anywhere else but here.
Dec 2020 • Family
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!!

Best, Most Authentic Shop Ever!
Dec 2020 • Couples
I have always been a passionate metaphysical and spiritual person. But I’ve been wanting to learn more. I wandered into this gem of a shop and both the owner and Tarot reader were incredible. I purchased a few Voodoo God statutes as well as a reading. The reading opened my eyes and my soul into helping find and discover my authentic self. I have a lot of work to do but it’s great work and I couldn’t feel more complete!!

Thank you Voodoo Authentica - I can’t WAIT to come back!

Let Zaar help you!

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

Incredible wedding experience
Oct 2019
Voodoo Authentica officiated our wedding. We both wanted to ensure that our wedding was not some fake tourist trap cheese ceremony and after extensive research decided on Voodoo Authentica. We couldn't have been more impressed! Simply amazingly wonderful and beautiful ceremony. Almost every person at our wedding expressed that it was the most beautiful and moving wedding they had ever attended. We were Married on October 4th 2019 in Jackson Square with the Saint Louis Cathedral as our back drop, it was something everyone will remember forever. Every pre-ceremony interaction was perfect and they made it so we had nothing to worry about and everything went perfect. So, If you live in New Orleans as we do or your visiting and want to stop into a Voodoo shop that isn't some type of tourist trap, stop in this location as it's well worth your time and attention. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT VOODOO AUTHENTICA, YA'LL ARE AMAZING!!!

Good selection
Mar 2020
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.

WONDERFUL SHOP! Inspiring
Feb 2020
I loved this shop. We saw so 4 "Voodoo" shops. This one was lovely and informative. It's close to the Voodoo Museum too! The tour took us here. They have lovely uplifting dolls etc. I have to tell you about the staff. I put my phone down in the store. At the airport I figured this out! I freaked out. My daughter said, "mom, it's a spiritual place, no one will take it." She was RIGHT! They found my phone, hung onto it and after a long day of work they checked their email and got back to me while we were on the plane!!!!!! This was during Mardi Gras Sunday! It's impossible to get mail in or out of the french Quarter on the 2 biggest days of the week, but they DID IT! And to be even kinder I ordered a book so they didn't charge me extra for the phone and innconvience, they just slipped the phone into the book package. Nicest email exchanges ever. LOVE THIS PLACE - and our 2 dolls. Wish I could insert pictures!
