Where to stay in New Orleans

Though you can walk to most tourist attractions in New Orleans from a hotel in the central business district, remember that many other parts of town feature less expensive and equally comfortable accommodations. Smaller hotels and private guesthouses in quiet residential neighborhoods offer not only good local food and spacious rooms, but can also allow you to explore the city's culture away from overwhelming tourist crowds. To reduce your carbon footprint during your stay, consider one of French Quarter's many green or eco-friendly hotels.

  • My son wanted to go check it out. The place was pretty neat to see. It's a very small place (2 only 2 rooms), but has tons of history behind it. Most people who go to visit are going to give offerings...  more »
  • This museum is essentially 3 rooms, a hallway display and a gift/book shop. Good examples of alters and Gris-Gris. $5 admission. Worth a half hour or 45 minutes at most. Some displays worthy of photos...  more »
  • Save your $5 & go somewhere else. The best part of the visit is the Visitors Guide they give you to read while you tour their 2 rooms. The info on the guide is interesting if you have no knowledge of ...  more »

  • Was a great experience. We were able to walk through without problems. The facilitator was very nice and helped our differently abled companion who needed some extra support. Was great for her as she felt special
  • Loaded with interesting artifacts. Very welcoming. Some of the items for sale feel more authentic than slot of of FQ shops. Truly pleased and blessed to have stopped in.
  • It's honestly a misrepresentation to call it a museum. Museums are usually far removed from their patrons. This place is more a series of altars devoted to various entities or concepts. Each altar is festooned with objects and money of visitors. It's in your face and graphic in its authenticity. Each person is given a two dollar reduction in fare and instructed to gift the item or altar of their choice one dollar and the wishing stump the other. In this way, each patron adds a new layer of realism to the altars. It's real, it's authentic, it's graphic, it's well worth visiting.
  • Loved it. If you are looking for a voodoo museum that's pristine this might not be for you... The offerings from other tourists really makes this place unique and interesting. Worth $5
  • Interesting and worth the stop. We went at a very busy time, so it was difficult to read any of the info on the walls. I wish they had a pamphlet that they let you keep. I wanted to learn a little about the voodoo culture, but I unfortunately didn't end up learning anything because there were so many people in there. We were there on a Saturday around 5, so I would try maybe earlier or during the week for a better experience.
