New Orleans Ghost, Voodoo & Vampire Walking Tour

3,109 reviews
New Orleans is infamous for its spooky past, filled with tales of voodoo, vampires, ghosts, and witches. During this walking tour, save time with a guide who knows the quickest routes around the Big Easy and brings the folklore and history of the city to life, all during the creepiest time of day—the night. Plus, a centrally located meeting point makes for a hassle-free, fun evening.

The Cabildo is one of the 5 Louisiana State located in the French Quarter & is worth a couple of hours to discover the wonderful history of the Crescent City. Lots of interesting stuff!

Compared to the excellent Presbytere I was decidedly underwhelmed by the Cabildo. The building itself is beautiful but the exhibits a bit of an odd mismatch. There is an exhibit on the Battle of New Orleans but other than a few facts about the battle itself - local US armies defeated a larger British army - it did not really provide much historical context. There was also an exhibit on wardrobes and another on maps. It all seemed a bit disjointed.

It was so disappointing not to be able to visit this museum and see Napoleon’s death mask. I can’t write a review as I didn’t get in but don’t think a major museum should be closed to tourists on a Saturday just after Mardi Gras

Very sorry that we weren't open when you visited. We do rent our museums for private events although it isn't often they purchase a closure like this. We hope you are able to visit us again.

What a beautiful museum full of rich LA history past and present! As a Museum Professional myself, my first order of business was to acquaint myself with the books! Bruce was so friendly and extremely knowledgable. He recommended so many wonderful books meant to enhance our experience!he encouraged us to visit the 1850 house which is def a must! Thanks Bruce, you were a great help!

The Cabildo was built in the 1790s and was the site of the Louisiana Purchase transfer in 1803. Nowadays, it hosts several exhibits on local history. located on Jackson Square in the French Quarter, adjacent to St. Louis Cathedral. The Louisiana State Museum operates a history museum inside. The exhibits in the museum are well done, and there is a good variety of material.
