The museum also offers a VooDoo-Cemetary Walking Tour, which takes you to none other than the tomb of Marie Laveau, the VooDoo Queen! The tour doesn’t miss other notable sites throughout “America’s Most Interesting City.” The cost for the walking tours is $19 for adults and $10 for children (12 & under), and automatically includes free admission to the museum. Schedule the tours with 24 hours advance notice, and will last 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
