New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review
Small. But what shop isn’t small in the French quarter. This is is great display of history, artifacts and culture. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Really enjoyed it. The kind lady that let us in was behind the counter making Gris Gris bags. Authentic for sure. Loved it
Cheap $5 activity to do on a rainy day. The museum is super small- only two rooms. Little to no history on the walls which made it difficult to enjoy the displays. Small gift shop at the end.
Worth $5 but I'd hesitate to call it a museum. It's a cramped stuffy couple of rooms where not very many people can fit. If there are more than 10 people at once you'll be pretty squished. It was very interesting though. It has pretty good information on Voodoo so if you're interested in the religion it's a must. Not a complaint against the museum but I find it weird that people throw a bunch of garbage on the alters. There were business cards, condoms, cigarettes and various other stupid things placed on the alters. Is that common among Voodoo alters? Seems disrespectful to me.
This "museum" is very tiny. My main complaint is that hardly anything is labeled. There's plenty of Voodoo paraphernalia in there, but only about 20% of it is labeled so you can understand what it is. I have an issue with a place calling itself a museum and not educating you on everything contained in it. It's only $10, but you're better going further down the street to Voodoo Authentica for free. We went in there next and showed the girls pictures of stuff we weren't sure about and they explained everything.
For $5 I don't know what I expected. It was very small and a base knowledge is necessary to enjoy the exhibit. I would not recommend it unless you're very into voodoo. I came out knowing nothing new.
