I went here because I was looking for some voodoo stores while I was in New Orleans. The store is really small I’m not sure if there is another part to this store because I didn’t pay the $7 to get into the museum part....More

This is one of the, if not the most authentic voodoo shop in town. I highly recommend a stop here. They have masks, scents, dolls, and they do readings here if your in the mood to know your future.

There are a lot of voodoo places in New Orleans, and this one seems the most laid back and authentic. I really enjoyed wandering around for a bit - and I bought a little voodoo doll to take home. Fun store to spend 20 minutes...More

If you are interested in Voodoo, want a spiritual cleansing or reading, this is the best place. Sure, they have their share of fun souvenir items, but they also have potion ingredients and practitioners who can help you / give you the straight scoop. The...More

Love this place! Sooooo much to look at. Make sure you notice the voodoo spirit shrines tucked around the place and chat with the alchemist in the back or schedule your very own reading. Great art and souvenirs to take home.

Had a voodoo history walking tour prior to a visit which helped give some background and history of voodoo which made the visit even more interesting. People were very friendly and there were many interesting things to look through and purchase
