New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum Tours and Activities

New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum
Set in the heart of the city known for its voodoo spirits and rituals, the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum is packed with altars, eerie statues, and voodoo dolls. Among the hodgepodge of mystical items, you’ll also find historic exhibits and details on the evolution of New Orleans’ voodoo reputation.

The Basics
Browse the intimate folk museum and learn about historic customs, rituals, and figures, then get a palm or tarot reading, if you wish. You can also visit the tomb of Marie Laveau—New Orleans’ Voodoo Queen—on a walking tour of the nearby St. Louis Cemetery. To dive deeper, join a voodoo, ghost, and vampire tour of the French Quarter.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Book tours of the cemetery 24 hours in advance.
  • The museum can help arrange psychic readings, gris-gris, and rituals.
  • The museum isn’t wheelchair-accessible.

How to Get There
Nestled in the French Quarter between Bourbon and Royal streets, the Historic Voodoo Museum is easy to reach on foot from French Quarter establishments and accommodations.

When to Get There
The Historic Voodoo Museum is open every day from 10am to 6pm. Arrive just after it opens to increase your chances of getting the small museum to yourself. Guided walking tours of the cemetery start at 9am and 12pm.

Voodoo-Themed Highlights of the French Quarter
The Historic Voodoo Museum is just a small part of what New Orleans has for voodoo-curious travelers. After your museum visit, join a voodoo walking tour to see spooky highlights, explore shops selling voodoo-themed souvenirs such as dolls and “love potions,” or stop by one of the many stands offering psychic readings.
