  • The best part of our trip, hands down. The price to do the self guided tour through the museum was only $5 and you could take pictures. It was very informative, very authentic and very unique. We stayed a while and enjoyed it from beginning to end.
  • Another great, small, $5 museum. Self guided. 3 small areas absolutely packed to the brim with Voodoo affairs of all kinds. Make a wish and an offering because why not. Remember coins not cash!
  • Very weird. Very. If you love the voodoo scary scene, you'll love this place. They describe in detail the history of the slaves and how witchcraft came to be in good old New Orleans. Creepy and may affect your sleep patterns for a night or two. Worth the $10 they charge though.
  • About ten years ago, I had a palm reading here. It was utterly astonishing. I think the reader was Phillip. He was a young man, mid to late 20s early 30's, slim, very polite and very skilled. I'd like to have a private reading if I could find him. I'm in Houston and get to New Orleans several times a year. I'll be planning something soon. Does anyone have any info or know if he's still practicing. He wasn't FROM New Orleans, but he told me he felt "at home here"....HELP!!
  • Informative, and definitely Interesting. If you take the time to read all the Info on the wall you can definitely spend some time here. And there is definitely Magic or Spirits in the atmosphere.
