Learn about the fascinating history of Voodoo at the New Orleans Voodoo Museum.

Voodoo arrived in New Orleans with African people, back when the city was first founded. It has been here ever since, morphing and adapting to the civilization and culture of the new world. Its roots are ancient, but it is not a “dead” art; in New Orleans, Voodoo evolved into a fascinating blend of West African religion and Catholicism.

Many of the Africans who were transported to New Orleans during the early 18th century came from a region in West Africa that is today the Republic of Benin. The Fon people who lived there called spirits “Vodoun”. Spirits and ancestors were a big part of the world view of the Fon people, and they became a big part of Voodoo as it was practiced in and around New Orleans.

To spend time at the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum is to delve into one of the most fascinating aspects of New Orleans culture. The museum has helped people from all walks of life learn more about Voodoo. Without being pedantic, it presents a vast amount of information and artifacts.

Stop by the New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum the next time you’re in town. It is located in the heart of the French Quarter, near several New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts. You may never be the same again.

Please visit the Historic Voodoo Museum for additional information.

Please visit our French Quarter Bed and Breakfasts for a list of inns near the museum.

The Street Performers of New Orleans

October 4th, 2011 by bbnola

New Orleans is unlike any other city in the United States. Music infuses nearly every inch of the city and every special occasion. Weddings, births, deaths – all merit music, and possibly a parade as well.

With a reputation for acceptance, tolerance, and creativity, street performers flock to New Orleans. Some are born and bred here, to be sure, but others are lured here by the promise of relaxed and generous crowds. Guests of New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts are sure to see at least a few buskers during their stay.

Watch a few of the performers who grace the streets of New Orleans. Imagine yourself there, laughing or swaying to the beat. Then find a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast that’s to your liking, and be on your way.
