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.

It is small. But, it has an interesting historical perspective of the voo doo religion and for 5 bucks it is time worth spent.

The museum is very small and cramped. In order to be able to see the displays the number of people allowed inside at one time would need to be regulated,but it is not. They let any number of people cram themselves in. As a result...More

A whole in the wall place. The ground floor of an old house was converted into this 'museum'. You will enter in the shop, pay $5 per person, be given an explanatory 'self-guide' plus a piece of paper and a pen. All stays there after...More

We visited the Voodoo Museum today, and when we got there the woman gave us half off admission after realizing we were evacuees from Irma. The museum is very small but has lots of interesting artifacts and information about Voodoo! Thank you for being so...More

An odd and small collection of three rooms filled with old, dusty, bones, paintings, pictures, dolls. The Voodoo Queen at the entrance charged us $5 to go in and asked us to make a $2 offering inside the "museum". It wasnt the highlight of our...More

2 very crowded, very tiny rooms stuffed to the gills with photos, coins, cigarettes, statues and who-knows-what-else. Save your five bucks for someplace else.

It's so small. Only two rooms of Africa carved sculpture that you buy for home interior, and paintings. It's only $5 but I mean $5 could get you a nice cake and enjoy rather then looking at things that don't mean much

Most of the information you learn in the museum can be learned from a good voodoo shop. I don't recommend paying the $5 entry fee. Also it was very hot and stuffy which just encouraged us to leave even sooner.

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

I don't know for sure, but I'd guess it's because at night in New Orleans, some neighborhoods can become a little 'rowdy' with a lot of intoxicated tourists, and if a lot of drunks go stampeding through the museum, they... More
