Interesting quick stopFlag review
This is a very small museum that has lots of alters in it. It was interesting but had a lot of reading in it. Our family thought it was just ok. We were in and out of it within about 10 minutes.
Tips for Families
Don't go if you have kids under about age 5. They probably wouldn't enjoy it and would probably mess up offerings on the alters.

Left an old Dodger's ticket on the altar for good luck- the table was filled with all sorts of crazy things people dropped there- old licenses, pictures of children, wishes on paper, a bottle of nail polish, co...
Who would dare to write a negative review about a Voodoo establishment? Well, fortunately I only have positive things to say about this place (and probably be more careful with my jokes). Although it is very small, it is really interesting. The man who greeted us was very knowledgeable and before he shared us his lecture on Voodoo history, he spoke to us a long time about his pet snake which he was holding in his arms. Being a sucker for animals, I was immediately taken in by the experience. It was really cool and informative place and I highly recommend it. On my way out I bought a couple of charms for myself (for success and happiness) and some friends who are trying to have a baby (passion and fertil...
