Dr. John was intereating and the highlight. Take more time speaking with him and less looking at the mediocre display
Very small museum with a lot of intersting information on Voodoo. Has a cute little giftshop you can purchase things from as well. This is more than a tourist shop and the person working was very informative.
Interesting little museum with actual information about voodoo. Only takes a half hour to see everything, and you can learn quite a bit. Also has a little gift shop. Better than the tourist-trap "voodoo shops" scattered around the Quarter.
Want to learn about voodoo and it's origins? Check out Dr. John T.'s museum. It's small but informative and Dr. John is very friendly and willing to answer any questions. Not just another voodoo souvenir shop, this little museum and shop is legit.
I didn't do the tour, just visited the 'museum'. All the comments in other reviews about it being small, dusty and jumbled are correct. There is some interesting stuff to see, particularly in the corridor area about the Voodoo Queen. I had quite a long talk with the man that runs the place in the reception area and that proved...

Not sure what I expected, but it wasn't this. Very small, very dusty. Explanations were pinned up pieces of paper. An explanation of the pennies would have been good. But I did learn some stuff....
The museum itself is small, only two rooms and a hallway. If you visit, be sure to attend the walking tour which costs 19.00 but totally worth it, because the museum by itself can be a little bit confusing. The tour is supposed to be a two hour visit, but it lasted almost 3 and a half hours, so it's... More
Informative as far as learning about Voodoo vs Hoo Doo. Lots of reading to figure it all out. Lots of interesting pieces to discuss.
The Museum is chucked full of interesting artifacts with very little information as to their origin or use. Unless you have some knowledge of Voodoo practice in New Orleans you will not have a clue. At least read the Museum webpage before you go. $5.00 entrance fee is reasonable for the content.
