    Small, yet fascinating. There's a lot packed in here and if you take the time to read the signage, you'll learn a few things for sure. Eclectic and cool.

    With a unique collection of voodoo-related items from the mysteries, secrets, histories, folklore, rituals, zombies, gris-gris, and famous practitioners of the religion, this has to be one of the most interesting small museums in the country. It’s intended to be an educational and entertaining experience designed for preserving the legacy of the New Orleans flavor of Voodoo and meant for the casual and curious visitor. Also, simply mention the special website admission discount and you get to see it all for only $5. That should save you enough to take a charm home with you and keep your connection to the connected universe strong.

    This museum is really small, so don't go expecting something spectacular. That said, it is super cool -- the exhibits are small and honestly, it sort of feels like an antique store where everything happens to be about voodoo. When we were there, the guy at the front desk also had a pet snake around his neck, which he let us pet. It was weird and awesome.

    This was a definite goal when I lived in New Orleans for the few months I did and It was a feature in the city that had gladly survived the years. Its small and crowded but that's part of its charm. Don't come in with a large bag on your shoulder because you will knock something over and piss off the voodoo gods. Some strange things in there, some great relics and antiques. The stories and photos were the most interesting to me. A beautiful and strange history starting in Africa and leading to New Orleans. Must See!

Description

Take a little bit of time for a side excursion to New Orleans smallest museum. Housed in a tiny French Quarter house, the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum entertains and educates its visitors about folklore rituals, zombies and Voodoo Queens with plenty of artifacts, alters, dolls, gris-gris, and many other curiosities related to Voodoo. The proprietor is a curious and knowledgeable devotee himself as he guides you through the diminutive, dusty and cramped quarters. Take the mystery out of Voodoo; learn and be entertained more in a thirty minute tour then in all the hours spent watching horror movies. Additional fascinating guided swamp, plantation and cemetery tours are available.
