New Orleans Ghost, Voodoo & Vampire Walking Tour

3,103 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.
US$20.21 per adult

Don't get me wrong, they have some neat stuff, but not a lot of stuff. The room was very small and you couldn't take pictures of the items. I believe tickets were $17 each. I don't feel that I got $17 worth to see a few items. Would not recommend.

Overpriced for very little offered. Basically a bunch of newspaper articles and some Gorey accident scene pictures. Not worth the time or money .

This was our first stop when we arrived and it did not disappoint. They had the video closed for viewing because of covid but everything else was great.

Seriously, I really was in a non-literal sense. My husband and I headed to New Orleans from Nashville for the week. Admittedly, I am a huge true crime fan with quite a morbid streak so this museum was right up my alley. This museum is small - it’s not some huge building but it is packed FULL of interesting items. NO PHOTOGRAPHY ALLOWED though. That wasn’t a huge issue for me because some of the photos of victims are just that, photos-of-victims. They are still someone’s loved one and deserve a bit of dignity as far as not having photos splattered everywhere by everyone with a smartphone. A bit hypocritical I know considering the subject matter; I did pay to go in and see them after all. Much of the allure of true crime can be described as such - rather hypocritical. 🤷🏼‍♀️ There is so much reading material in here. Lots of letters, cards and artwork from serial killers. Despite being small, we spent a couple of hours here revisiting a few sections over and over again. I was really intrigued by the embalming video. However, I kept getting sidetracked when they were tying off the carotid artery (it took forever for them to retrieve it in the video) so I would come back to the video to catch the following steps between nearby exhibits. I always grossly mistimed it and caught the same part of the video three different times. I finally gave up on it and just caught a few pieces of the video as I rechecked exhibits here and there. It is rather graphic - it fully shows the modern embalming procedure. Squeamish folks, be wary. I didn’t realize until I was leaving that they have a tally-mark system at the register where they keep count of those that throw up and those that pass out from the video content. I think the tally range was something like 60+ people. The worker said it had been a while since someone hit the floor over it though. There is a small theater in the very back with death scene photographs that are narrated and explained on loop. Some were quite unusual, some were shocking but all were graphic. If you have small children or young teenagers, perhaps skip this attraction or use caution depending on what you feel is appropriate. We really enjoyed everything. Dr. Kevorkian’s machine was intriguing. We would gladly come back again in the future. Thanks for having us and we will send others your way.

We took a self-guided tour here. I enjoyed it. It has a lot of information about death and serial killers. I would recommend checking it out for yourself.
