This museum is essentially 3 rooms, a hallway display and a gift/book shop. Good examples of alters and Gris-Gris. $5 admission. Worth a half hour or 45 minutes at most. Some displays worthy of photos, which are allowed.

Now this place rocked! Excellent value and the woman at the front was great. She didn't push her sales on us and just let us be. We really, really, enjoyed this museum and the atmosphere inside and out. It was very cheap too and maybe...More

This it's a very nice place to stop at New Orleans for their culture of voodoo, they have an atmosphere of the historical background of their basic culture of voodoo history.

Might sound interesting but it's 2 rooms full of junk at $5 a head. Go someplace else. This really is a dump.

I visited this museum on a Saturday afternoon with my boyfriend. For $5, I felt it was totally worth the money. It's pretty small but there's tons of fascinating information about the spirits on the walls. Totally worth the five bucks. Oh and this one...More

We spent 4 dollars a person to go in and look at garbage people left behind as they were hoping different events would not happen to them. It was not worth the money. We laughed the entire time there is 3 rooms to tour

This museum is very small, but has some interesting artifacts. Maybe not the best for small or young children. Some of the artifacts are human remains and it is very small and can be crowded. However, it is a good way to learn a little...More

It's two-rooms crammed with dusty stuff. You're handed a plastic slip-covered paper to read as you walk through the tiny two rooms. The information is stuff you could find on wikipedia and doesn't have much to do with what you're looking at. There was a...More

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

Is this an admission free attraction ? If not what is the general admission ?

Posted admission is 7$ for adults and slightly less for kids but they often change it based on a whim I've found. we paid 8$ for two adults the day we went.
What is the "safety concern" that causes the museum to close at sunset? Is it voodoo related? You know, like out of respect for the spirits or not to tempt faith?

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
