  • I had no idea this place existed until we were chatting with someone we met while waiting for the Krewe du Vieux parade. Glad we took her advice and went. Not even sure how to describe and review the ...  more »
  • My daughter and I had some time to kill (sorry for the pun) so we decided to go into the Museum of Death. Very steep in price for what is on display and the time it takes to do the self-guided "tour"....  more »
  • So I don't know how to rate this. We look for New and different things to do in and around the quarter every time we are in town. I have been to one other museum that I felt like it was a tourist trap...  more »

  • Pretty cool place, and it's a decent value for the $15 admission charge. You could easily spend 2 hours or more in there. They have a theatre in the back showing some grizzly death scenes, and it's set to upbeat jazz music. Luckily the restrooms are located nearby in case you need to hurl.
  • This was a very enjoyable experience. It's a go at your own pace sort of deal and each room has a different theme. The first one is bones and embalmed animals, the second is generally serial killers and shrunken heads, and the third room is a bit of a mix of general creepy death related things. They also have some really cool posters and shirts in their gift shop. Can't wait to check the one in Los Angeles out!
  • Very fun place. Not for the faint of heart. There is a large dedication to serial killers which I love. There is a lot of reading just to be warned. There is a theater in the back that shows something. I say there for 5 minute before I couldn't take it. That's the only downfall. The rest is really fascinating and fun.
  • I absolutely loved this place. It’s fascinating if you like dark things (which I do). It was educational and very nicely displayed. If you are easily disturbed by graphic images, this is not for you and you WILL be bothered. It is not a gimmicky French quarter attraction for the family, it is a death museum of artifacts and serial killer memorabilia. There is a perpetual snuff film playing in the back with upbeat jazz music playing. I didn’t prefer that so much and only watched about 10 seconds. I felt it was exploitative, especially will the jolly music playing during murder film. Other than the back room theater, I really enjoyed the experience.
  • My husband and I were on our honeymoon in New Orleans and decided to check this out. This museum has something for everyone. If you're interested in serial killers they've got it, if you want the more gory stuff they've got it, or if you're just going out of curiosity it will be well satisfied. We had the pleasure of talking to the owner, who was both entertaining and educational. We had a really nice conversation with him, but aside from that the museum itself boasts small and large items. The people saying that they just went through it very quickly and it wasn't educational obviously didn't stop to read any of the things that they had but if you want to sincerely learn and experience it then take the time because it will be worth it. We will definitely return the next time we are in New Orleans and now want to go to the one in Hollywood! Keep up the good work guys!
