The basics

The Pharmacy Museum is small and can easily be seen in less than an hour. The first floor is home to a soda fountain counter and displays of apothecary bottles, show globes, voodoo potions, and surgical devices from the 19th century and beyond. Climb up to the second floor to see the physician’s office, sick room, and special exhibits.

Many New Orleans attraction passes include museum admission, so it's a quick and easy stop to fit in while strolling around the French Quarter.

NOLA Drunken History Tour from New Orleans
The Drunken walking tour was great! Raffle was awesome and down to earth. He told us about the History of New Orleans and about who he is. The bars that we stopped at were nice . Raffle made sure that they had clean bathrooms and the atmosphere was not as busy as the ones on Boubon Street. If you reserve this tour, I highly recommend Raffle.

New Orleans #1 Haunted Ghost, Voodoo, & Vampire Tour
Mistress G, and her Spoon, gave every penny's worth of our money on the adult tour and then some. It was hilarious, gruesome, informative, and well paced for everyone on tour. She was mindful of of our safety without being bogged down by details. We aodred her!

New Orleans #1 Haunted Ghost, Voodoo, & Vampire Tour
Our first tour that we tried to take ended with out tour guide getting sick. We had a different tour guide come out but gave us a paranormal tour. The guide was great and it was fun but it wasn’t the tour we booked. We reached out to the company and they allowed us to go on the original tour we booked on the following night. Both tour guides were great. They had fun engaging stories. Fred was a great guide. I would highly recommend taking a tour with this company.

New Orleans Killers and Thrillers Tour
Our tour guide, Christian, was awesome! He made the tour a lot of fun, and we really enjoyed the stories he told us. Definitely not a tour for the kiddos, but very enjoyable for the adults - especially if you’re into the “killers and thrillers” kind of thing. Loved it!
