Halloween in New Orleans

With the Krewe of Boo Parade, City Park’s new Scout Island Scream Park, the Haunted Mortuary and Voodoo Fest, New Orleans is the ideal location to celebrate Halloween. But did you know you can get in the mood any time of year with a haunted history tour, a cemetery tour, a visit to a voodoo shop or by visiting the Museum of Death? If you like a good horror story, you won’t want to miss this macabre museum at 227 Dauphine Street, right across the street from Deanie's Seafood.

After taking in the gorgeous architecture of the French Quarter and breathtaking Mississippi Rivers views, come see antique mortician apparatuses, crime scene and morgue photos, body bags, coffins and a skull collection. If you’ve never seen a shrunken head, this is your chance. There’s even an exhibit on cannibilism.

You can also see photos of the Manson family, and letters and artwork from famous serial murders (or should we same infamous). The original painting by “Killer Clown” John Wayne Gacy is chilling to say the least.

Word to the wise: If you’re traveling with kids, take them to Crawloween at the Audubon Butterfly and Insectarium or Boo at the Zoo at Audubon Zoo instead.
