  • I thought it was going to be more gory, with all manner of the ways people die. I found that most of the displays are of things I've already seen through documentaries and channels like ID, History an...  more »

  • Definitely worth the $15 admission. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They had a really cool variety of macabre memorabilia and displays as well as preserved animals/skeletons and serial killer memorabilia. The gift shop is about as expensive as any other gift shop you'd go to. Unfortunately they don't allow photography, but that's understandable.
  • The displays were okay, but the staff left our whole party uncomfortable by insisting our Kava rope sling bags were backpacks and that they be kept up front in an unsecured area. We were informed of this policy after one member of our party already had their card scanned for payment. If it had been before, we would have left. They assured us they would stay with our bags and they would be watched , but one of the two people working the front frequently strolled through the display asking if everything was okay, etc. If one person is busy running the register up front, it would be easy enough for someone to reach an unattended bag while they are distracted. Even removing things like ID, cash, etc. before leaving the bags did not totally make me comfortable. I am being asked to trust total strangers. If this business wants to make their customers feel as secure as they obviously want to feel, install lockers for customers and provide locks. Antique malls do this all the time. We had been looking forward to our visit there, but this soured the whole thing for us.
  • Dont waste your $15... most of the items displayed are pictures and articles that can be googled. A few stuffed wild animals, some videos that can be found on YouTube as well. Nothing (Im sure) you haven't already seen before. The cashier guy wasn't friendly at all. In fact, he put my money and tickets on the counter TWICE after I handed it to him in his hand. Not to mention I'm paraplegic (wheelchair bound) and cant see over the counter, barely was able to reach It. So rude and very inconsiderate!
  • You definitely need a strong stomach for the videos they play in the back of the museum. Good information on serial killers and executions done in other parts of the world and in the past. Really cool oddities on display and a decent gift shop.
  • Best place I visited in NOLA, highlight of my trip, must go back when I am alone so I can read more and skip less. So cool. Staff was so nice. Fascinating stuff. Guess I'm totally sick but I was so into the serial killer stuff.
