Voodoo Museum.

Voodoo Museum

Real human skulls, voodoo dolls, and a Rougarou: a man with a gator head. Small, but packed with real voodoo items. Tries to be informative and non-sensational, but it's still freaky. Report... [03/07/2015]

Voodoo Museum

A small museum, run by a practicing voodoo priest. The museum was very interesting, and explained much of the history of voodoo. There was also information on the most famous priestess, Marie Laveau. The owner is extremely friendly and even introduced us to his snake. You can also book an appointment with him for a reading.

In voodoo, the snake is the ultimate symbol of power. The owner really wanted me to hold the snake so that he could give me reading. Since I don't like snakes, I didn't take him up on his offer.

Voodoo stuff.

Voodoo Museum

Two rooms filled with jars and shabby displays. Best exhibits are an official zombie whip and the top hat of John Bayou, America's first voodoo promoter. Souvenir charm tips: Calendula guarantees "faster sales" and helps win court cases. Orris Root is used for sex problems. Rosemary increases memory and aids in tests. Calcitrippae has a potent effect on the outcome of Bingo and LOTTO games! A raccoon's penis brings good luck in gambling.
