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'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.

If I'd have gone with a group of adults I probably wouldn't give this a five but the tour guide entertained my kids to no end! For about $20 she told several stories about the history of New Orleans voodoo and really had them interested.

You could basically find better information on wikipedia or watch something on youtube, it was small and boring. I was expecting more than just a whole lot of junk and some printouts of information.

Its only $5 so it really is worth the price. There were only a few people in the museum when we went. Its really small and its hard to pass anyone. You are allowed to take pictures and leave offerings to the person of your...More

This museum is, as others have mentioned, very small. Be prepared for a squeeze on a busy day. On the other hand, it is a truly authentic set of altars and memorabilia related to voodoo. Several other reviewers mentioned the disorganization of the altars and...More

We went to the Historic Voodoo Museum after taking a voodoo walking tour that had pointed it out on the way, and I have to say we were a bit disappointed in the museum. The museum is three small rooms in total. There is the...More

Small place but lots of history. Good for $5 entrance fee. Everyone so nice and even prayed for our family. Worth it!

This is a quirky little "museum". It's very cheap, so it's worth the amount of time that you will spend in here if you are actually interested in voodoo/hoodoo. I definitely found it worth the time and money, but this place gets VERY crowded VERY...More

Thank god this was only 5 dollars; the 'museum' is tiny and a mess. It's possible the $25 graveyard tour is better... Spend the $5 on a cup of gumbo around the corner instead.

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
