Voodoo came to New Orleans during the Colonial Period when the land owners took on slaves to work in their plantations. It is believed that today?s Louisiana Voodoo culture is from these African American ancestors.
The New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum is a small space where artifacts and other memorabilia related to the voodoo culture is displayed. It was established in 1972 and is still one of the top tourist attractions in the area today. Created by Charles Massicot Gandolfo, the inspiration was driven from his great-grandfather who was believed to be raised by a New Orleans Voodoo Queen.
The New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum is the only voodoo museum in the US. It is open all week, and charges a $7 general admission fee from its visitors.
