There's more to voodoo than pin cushions and dolls. Learn about the historical and spiritual significance of the religion—and the woman who helped revive it in the city—at this store that triples as a museum and shrine. You'll find a mix of kitschy souvenirs up front and a spiritual advisor in the back, who performs readings just by feeling your pressure points. Whether you're a believer or not, Marie Laveau's is a spot that's uniquely New Orleans.
