Overview

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.

Although it is small, it was fun. My 14 y/o son enjoyed it, as well as myself and my husband. Pretty sure there were some mischievous spirits in there...one kept taking off my head band....

My daughter and I visited the Voodoo Museum together. Living in South Florida and having had prior knowledge of, and exposure to, the Haitian practice of Voodoo, I was very interested in this museum. I enjoyed reading about the practices and seeing the various altars,...More

Not much to see, its two small rooms and a hallway with random things scattered about. No real order to it and its not that well kept. Provides very little information.

We visited this museum as part of a private tour (see my review of Nate Scott). The admission was $5/pp. Yes, as other reviewers have noted, the museum could use some TLC. Yes, if you have no context of what the significance of the items...More

This “museum” is a tiny room and hallway dedicated to exploiting unwitting tourists into paying for a tiny collection of yard sale rubbish. All the while encouraging “offerings” that no doubt are collected for their personal profit.

This museum is very small and hot. Most of the exhibits looked like they were just thrown together. It is not worth your time even if it was free.

While it is only $5, I still think it is too much. It is two very small, cramped, dark and dirty rooms. There was not much there I found interesting. I went with a friend who just wanted company, but couldn’t even see a lot...More

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 did not do the reading. I did not see anywhere in the museum to do one, either. It is very small. There are readings all around Jackson Square, though.
