      While the Voodoo shops found around the French Quarter are must-see attractions while visiting New Orleans, this is the only museum dedicated to the subject. The displays include Louisiana Voodoo and Haitian Vodou, as well as artifacts from other African Diasporic Religions. Various types of altars, artwork, masks, and sacred items are found in every square inch of the place. The tomb of Marie Laveau, the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, is about half a mile away and if you walk up St. Ann Street you will pass by her old house, 1020 St. Ann Street, on the way.

      If you go:
      The museum is open daily, except holidays. Plan to spend about 30 minutes to an hour there. The Original French Market restaurant is a short walk away on the corner of St Phillip and Decatur Streets and makes a superb dish of Pasta Jambalaya, among other creole dishes.
