Chateau Musee Vodou Reviews
The water tower housing this museum is visually interesting in its own right, and once you enter, you are struck by the artistically displayed voodoo artifacts. The audiotape accompaniment provides..... more »
the visit was interesting. the exhibition is on more floors. you can get an audio-guide in more languages. if you're not a specialist in history and/or ethnology, i think one visit is sufficient... more »
Great place if you're really into African culture. It's a private museum, so the admission fee is quite high, but the audioguide is included and you can spend approximately an hour there listening to the descriptions of the authentic objects.
Incredible collection in a stunningly renovated water house, one of the best museums (and most intense) I've ever visited. Actual Vodou sculptures kept alive by traditional practitioners guard the place, as authentic as it gets outside of Africa! A thorough audio-guide takes you through the African roots of Voodoo, connecting it smartly to American, Arabic and European traditions. My only regret is having had too little time to fully immerse myself in the space (75'), I wish I'd had double that... I'll go back for sure. The price is on the expensive side, but Château Vodou doesn't rely on public funding or subventions, and the experience is truly worth it. And besides the stunning exhibition, you actually get to visit a beautiful 19th century monument... Two hours is a good time to get around the three floors, more if you want to dive deep. I'd recommend it for anyone interested in cultural traditions, colours, costumes, African art and history. In one word: mesmerising!
