Ghosts sightings, haunted hotels, abandoned buildings and murder scenes are just a few of the many secrets Haunted New Orleans holds. In celebration of October, we have listed some of New Orleans’ best paranormal activities to help you get the perfect scare out of your next New Orleans experience.
Haunted History Tours
Walking through the French Quarter at night is in itself a spooky activity. However, walking through this iconic neighborhood with one of New Orleans’ infamous French Quarter Phantoms Ghost Tours or Haunted History Tours will help you get the full effect. These tours bring visitors all around a historical and haunted New Orleans that not even locals know about. Some tours even offer cemetery ghost tours! While becoming wrapped up in these spooky stories, you might even come across one of New Orleans’ famous ghosts.
New Orleans Pharmacy Museum
Also among the most haunted French Quarter locations is the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum. This museum was home to America’s first licensed pharmacist, who was known for having performed illegal experimental surgeries on women. The museum is filled with all of his past tools and other voodoo potions. It is said the pharmacist still haunts the 3rd floor of the building.
If you’re looking to get your adrenaline really pumping, visiting one of New Orleans’ spooky haunted houses will do the trick! Some of the most famous include The Mortuary and House of Shock. Both offer a gruesome experience unlike other haunted houses. At the end you might find yourself being chased by a dead man holding a chain saw.
Not only is haunted New Orleans filled with paranormal activities, it is also home to famous gruesome murder scenes. Fans of American Horror Story: Coven will recognize one of these famous locations, the Lalaurie Mansion. This Royal Street house dates back to 1832. When the Lalaurie family lived there, the house caught fire and inside firefighters found a torture chamber filled with slaves that Mrs. Lalaurie had been brutally torturing for years.
