New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum
(in the heart of the French Quarter, between Bourbon and Royal Streets)
724 Dumaine Street
New Orleans, Louisiana 70116
Voice: 504-680-0128

The New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum is open seven days a week from 10:00am until 6:00pm

One of the most unique small museums in the world. The New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum explores the mysteries, the secrets, the history and the practices of Voodoo. You will learn: what is Voodoo, where did it come from, and how it got here.

Exhibits explore the practice of “gris-gris” magic and the origins of zombies. Marie Laveau, the famous Voodoo Queen is explained in both fact and folklore. Voodoo rituals and processions are explained, as well as, how they have influenced the birth of jazz, and some of the particular events of contemporary Mardi Gras. The museum features an altar room where practitioners call on the spirits and make charms.

The New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum was founded in 1972 and remains the only attraction of its kind in New Orleans. Both, photographs and questions, are welcome, and encouraged.

A small front gift shop greets visitors and offers unique, one of kind, handmade Louisiana souvenirs such as moss stuffed voodoo dolls and gris-gris bags for everything from love, to wealth, to success in legal matters. They also carry a variety of books on the subjects of Voodoo and New Orleans.

The museum also offers the original Voodoo – Cemetery Walking Tour through Congo Square and to the tomb of  Marie Laveau. This tour has been featured by the New York Times, MSNBC and others. Admission to the museum is free with the tour.

The Voodoo – Cemetery Walking Tour is $19.00 per person and includes free admission to the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum as well. Rates may be discounted for children and groups of six or more. The walking tours can be scheduled seven days a week at either 10:30am or 1:00pm (except no 1:00pm on Sundays). Calling at least 24 hours in advance to schedule and reserve a time is highly recommended and appreciated. (There is normally a minimum of two persons required for tour reservations, however, please call to check and see if you can join with others if you are traveling alone.)

General Admission to the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum is normally $7.00, however, if this website is mentioned we will automatically give a $2.00 discount to $5.00. Rates are discounted for children and groups of ten or more.

Price subject to change so please contact them at 504-680-0128 for more information.
