A guy on staff physically knocked my son away for TOUCHING an altar in the store. My son is 7. Rude, nasty, ignorant staff who "look" the part but don't know squat about voodoo. I was told that he couldn't touch the altar ON DISPLAY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STORE AND SURROUNDED BY MERCHANDISE AND NO BARRICADE TO KEEP CUSTOMERS FROM TOUCHING IT that it "means something to them." My son, not knowing exactly what he did wrong, spent the next hour crying. Pretentious and touristy. I should have knocked the guy on the ground for laying a hand on my son. I'll never return and will encourage other New Orleans visitors to steer clear of these jerks. Try Voodoo Authentica instead.

I went this weekend and saw Philip. Most of my family saw him also. I was the first to go so there was no way he got things from the rest of the group. He knew about all my children, living and dead. He knew that I had a garden this year. He knew which knee had surgeries. He also told me some scary stuff that I can't post here. 100% accurate I would say. The same for other members of the family. My husband was a disbeliever and man did he get him right. Now he is a believer!

OK- I'll admit it. I like almost everything about New Orleans- it's difficult to disappoint me.

Just walking around the city is so much fun and then (surprise) the food is fantastic, the music is incredible and the shops are fascinating.

I wish I could visit more often.

I will never forget my visit to Marie Laveau's House. I was expecting cheesy but what I got was an experience- it doesn't matter what I believe- she believes it.

My rule of thumb in New Orleans is "go with the flow" If you do you'll have a wonderful time.

There aren't many Voodoo Houses in my neighborhood so it's not something I can do every day.

Expect a lot of eye rolling from other visitors. In my opinion, they are missing the fun.

Go with it and you'll have a great time.

Phil (Philip) (Whom I thought was named Bob for the last few years for some reason...which is why I could not find any info on him) is, was, will always be the ONLY accurate psychic I have ever come into contact with (at least up to now). Where is he? What is he doing?

April 2006 I received a reading from Phil (Philip) and it was one of the best I've had. I consider his ability to read is authentic and I totally recommend him. Even the not so good was enjoyable to hear. He was very accurate and I was so happy to receive a bona fide reading. Look forward to when I can return for another.
It's great to know that someone else at the shop has received high readings also just in case I get down and he is not in. Thank you. Your review helped alot. And best wishes to others.

i had a reading from at the shop from an older lady named Miss Irene,she was 100% correct in what she told me,she even brought up a a subject that i denied knowing about although it was in my life and she was insistent she saw this person,i have had many readings before but never one as accurate as this one,i will return to her again,if you are into this sort of this please go by and have her read for you,i think she is only there on Tuesdays,and Saturday nights,she is well worth the visit.and thank you Miss Irene for the wonderful accurate reading.

I just back from New Orleans with my girlfriends. I wanted to go to a reader that was direct and insightful with current situations going on in my life. Phillip provided just that. He asked no questions, just read my palm, my cards, and my aura. He was 100% accurate. He hit on things that only I knew and since I am from another state he had no way of knowing. My girlfriend that is a total non-believer heard of my great reading and went and got one too. She said he was 80% accurate. If you are into this sort of stuff you know that skeptics can tend to put up a wall and be hard to read, so to get an 80% approval rating from her....I say this is the best reader I have ever run across!

Marie Laveau is the most popular Voodoo priestess known in New Orleans and the House of Voodoo which bears her name showcases this fascinating subject matter. Bear in my upon entering that you need an open mind to fully experience what is being offered.

The first thing that you notice is the amount of items that grace this shop. Everything on the subject of voodoo can be found here... icons, symbols, totems, charms, books... you name it, it's here.

The staff is an ecclectic assortment ready to help and serve you. In fact you can have a reading from one of them if you desire.

A small altar is present at the front of the store for people to make wishes afetr donating a coin or prized possession.

The experience of just walking into the store is electric and who will feel like you are part of the vodun world.

PROS: Very unique and different
CONS: Very small shop, can get very crowded with lots of people

I took some friends to this and they thought it was really cool. I also thought it was pretty interesting. Tour the museum and purchase some neat souveniers!
