About
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.

Our tour guide N'awlins Nate (sp?) is clearly a born storyteller -- he wove such a magical web of fact, fable, and fiction that it was hard to tell the three apart! Definitely worth the $27 tour price, considering cemetery admission on its own costs...More

The New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum is one of few museums in the world dedicated entirely to voodoo art. Founded in 1972 by Charles Massicot Gandolfo, a local artist with a passion for all things voodoo, this small museum--only two rooms--is located at 724 Dumaine...More

Nate was fantastic guide, explaining the history of Voudou in the US and Africa and providing a depth to his explanations that communicated well beyond just the words and into the essence of one of the most misunderstood religions of the world.

Because of the size of the museum, you may have to wait. The only let so many people in at a time. Wait it out. It is worth it. We took a Voodoo tour so everything was explained to us, which is probably the best...More

Went with my 15yo. Lots to read about voodoo and Marie Laveau. Bring money or cigars or cigarettes to leave at the altars and make a wish in the back room. This is two rooms and a hallways with a small shop up front. So...More

The biggest issues is that this museum is actually just a very narrow hallow and 2 rooms in a house with a front room acting as store front. Anymore than 4 people in there felt cramped and hard to get around without feeling like you...More

It was an interesting place, not much structure to it. Things seemed more stashed together. And it was incredibly small. Only two small rooms, a hallway, and the front gift area. I did learn some interesting things though. Would I visit again? Probably not, one...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

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 did not do the reading. I did not see anywhere in the museum to do one, either. It is very small. There are readings all around Jackson Square, though.
