It's a beautiful landmark, but not unlike many of the historic structures you'll come across in the French Quarter. Tours are not allowed inside.

We enjoyed seeing this building and hearing the story while we had an evening tour with Voodoo Bone Lady Tours. Otherwise you'd never know of the horrors associated with this building.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively

The "New Orleans Ghost, Voodoo, and Vampire Night time Walking Tour" covers all your important spots in the French Quarter and covers Lalaurie Mansion nicely! Call (855) 226-9624 to book.

nope, it's a private property, but as a landmark you can see the house from outside, get the history and if you are lucky catch a ghost with your camera.
