The place shows real-life footage and is not re-enacted that makes it a rather unique museum full of historical facts.

Museum Of Death, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review

  • If you're not interested in skeletons, autopsies, letters from serial killers, murder instruments, and car accident photos, this isn't for you. If you are, it's a treat! The information presented is comprehensive and interesting. It's matter-of-fact, not designed to shock, and they have some artifacts that must've required a lot of finagling to get. The staff are also very friendly and so pleased to answer questions. It's heavily focused on murder, crime, and suicide, but they've also got some information on death rituals and post-mortem and funerary practices. I thought the autopsy videos were fascinating, but I'm not particularly squeamish. I'd love to go back and just spend a few hours reading all the letters and descriptions; I didn't have time on this visit. Definitely worth the $15, and they've got wicked fun postcards.

  • This was such a great experience. I can’t wait to visit their other bigger location in California. The owner was extremely friendly and was willing to give you information on anything in the museum. he also suggested other museums for us to visit in the area (which I thought was cool) located right in the middle of the French quarters I definitely recommend this place for an activity while visiting New Orleans.. just remember no pics lol!!

  • This wasn't really in my taste. It was a bit interesting. If you're into reading over or have a fascination with serial killers this is up your alley. A bit pricey for what it was, but not ludicrious. I would recommend to someone as long as they have a heavy interest in serial killers as it's near plenty of other things, anyway.

  • Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and always ready for discussion! Museum is self-guided but neatly laid out in different sections. Very informative and intriguing, this is not a place to pass up!

  • Perfect for fans of murder/crime. I spent hours reading letters to and from serial killer inmates, Jeffrey Dahmer’s written confession and behavioral reports from prison, etc etc etc. The staff were friendly and helpful. A great way to spend the afternoon.
