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.
