Agreed, the Voodoo Museum is t...

Agreed, the Voodoo Museum is tiny and silly. But the reason to go is Carol, the proprietor. She's a crack-up, and when I was looking for just the right voodoo doll, she said "I'll give you something better," and proceeded to look through the Farmers Almanac and write out a whole calendar for me on the best days for success -- kind of like a reading, only free!

She seriously did this just to be nice.



Plus, someone called while I was waiting and she gave them free advice on how to perform some sort of ritual. Of course it is probably all hogwash, but the vibe in this place does feel like authentic Nola when you dig a little deeper and get to know the locals.



Plus, I had no idea there is really such a thing as a "zombie," technically speaking, until I visited here. Who knew? For $5, it's a fun little distraction on your way through the quarter.

Essence of New Orleans

The Museum is small and, well, it is a hole in the wall. However, the experience is the essence of New orleans. Much like the Quarter, it has it charm and ambience. The staff was eager to answer our questions. Voodoo is New Orleans, so you have to make a pit stop here. Don't forget to make an offering before you leave. It made the hair on the back of my next stand up!

Avoid

I though this was the biggest rip-off of my whole holiday.
Two small rooms filled with junk.
Sorry.

NOT WORTH IT

This plae charged me $5 to take a less than 10 minute walk thru two junk filed rooms they claimed were a museum. I had to walk around by myself and guess what everything was. It was awful..... This is a tourist trap on the same level as those ""ghost town"" places out West. Don't do it!!!
