Voodoo is an important part of New Orleans culture, and not only because it is still practiced by some, in the form of gris-gris and other spells, but because there have been some influential voodoo queens in the city (Marie Laveau)and there is even a museum dedicated to all things voodoo. The museum in small but full of interesting relics and lore.

You can get some voodoo supplies like candles and dolls in the gift shop, and you can also book cemetery tours.
