New Orleans Ghost, Voodoo & Vampire Walking Tour

3,020 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$25.00 per adult

Wonderful piece of New Orleans history. The place that made many of the black Indian costumes famous during Mardi Gras. Played a role in the HBO series Treme. Proprietor is a wonderful man willing to spend time and tell you his story. Great place to visit. So worth it.

this is a must if your doing museums. The history of mardigras right up in here, with a native who knows so much, and wants to share. Ronald Lewis, the gatekeeper of the Northside Skull and Bone Gang. Big 9 social aid and pleasure club. founder of this museum and fabulous collection. Its def small, but packed with so much stuff to read, see, touch, and experience you could be there for hours.

This is private museum of Mardi Gras Indian culture in New Orleans. Mr. Lewis, the owner & operator, is a retired streetcar driver and longtime Indian, skeleton member and Lower 9th Ward homeowner. His artifacts are authentic and represent one of the most colorful traditions in the world. Bonus: If you can get him to talk about his post-Katrina travails and ultimate return to the Lower 9th, you will be mesmerized and deeply moved. By appointment only. Very much worth the effort.

It’s small and laid back, but full of interesting and authentic items. Ronald is willing to answer any questions and is interested in you and where you’re from. When you’re visiting from abroad he likes it if a part of your tip is given in your local currency. We were free to take pictures and could even touch some of the objects that were on display. If you don’t have a local SIM card it’s best to make Uber or cap arrangements in advance, there’s no free WiFi anywhere in the vicinity.
