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.

This is a real find. A museum dedicated to the unique food and beverages from each of the southern states. exhibits show the food origins that make the south. You will learn a lot. An easy walk down MLK Blvd from the St Charles Street car.

I have been meaning to visit for years & I finally got around to it. My first impression upon walking inside was how amazing it smelled & I know I want to try one of their cooking demos someday. Admission was very affordable (adults $10.50)& they also offer a student discount ($5.25) so be sure to bring your student ID if you have one. The museum is definitely small, but full of information regarding food & drinks in the south. Each southern state has its own little exhibit and it was fun to read about the history of some of my favorite brands. They had a large exhibit on absinthe, which made us go out & try absinthe for the first time ever that same day! The museum is also right on the 15 Bus route which takes you straight downtown.

Great anthology of southern cuisine and cocktails. Museum is hands on and resembles a market space. Give yourself about 1-1/2 hours to see everything.

This museum is small and doesn’t take a lot of time but has good information. It has areas for each southern state with information on food and drinks from there. Some states have more information then others. They also have a section for popeye chicken and alcohol section. Great activity for a rainy day or to fill up an hour or so of time. There is on street parking that is free and staff was very friendly.

Lots of interesting historical info combined with good food. Great for a nice, laid back afternoon. Bar and restaurant available next door. Knowledgeable instructor and tour guide.
