Please do not waste your money and time visiting this place. My wife and I politely asked if we could have a reading, and she immediately told us that young people like us were "unsettled" and were approaching life in a misguided way. She then informed us that each reading was 150 dollars a piece! She claimed she needed the... More

Visit Priestess Miriam. She is a wonderful, kind soul. Learn about New Orleans Voodoo in a safe, non-scary setting based on spirit. Definitely a different experience, but a NOLA experience worth doing. Ask to tour the temple, for a donation. Interesting, different, and on point.

I stopped by here upon suggestion from a local as well as some good reviews online. I was looking for an authentic voodoo/ root religion experience after learning a lot about it locally. Going in expecting to meet someone to share some thoughts with - ask questions to, we were greeted by a woman (not the priestess) sitting in the... More

My friend and I went expecting to learn more about voodoo but we were greatly disappointed. The space is set up more like a shop and there is a shrine where you can put your offerings. However, the whole time we were there NONE of the people who worked there bothered to come out to say hi or ask if... More

The whole time I visited, I honestly didn't know how to feel. Nothing gave me the creeps about the place, but I did think it was odd that a place with that much "spiritual" presence was so visible and open for people to by trinkets from. Nevertheless, I bought some decent incense from there and left a coin behind.

Enjoyed our visit here very much. Priestess Miriam was a delight to talk with and enjoyed her tour the temple which was like the most interesting museum I have ever seen. The shop had a variety of reasonable priced trinkets. Enjoyed the visit here so much especially just having conversation with Miss Miriam.

As a not religious person the visit was a very interesting experience. We knocked on the door and priestess Miriam invited us to her places. We entered the shop and were not sure if that was all.

We dropped in and went on...... a very enlightening experience with our host. Man is she spiritual!... in a VOODOO way that was very heart felt and conveyed throughout our many DEEP conversations. You can tell the moment you go in she is the real deal.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood 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.
