THE MORTUARY HAUNTED MANSION
EST. 1872 ~ 150TH ANNIVERSARY
At the very “dead” end of world famous Canal Street lies THE MORTUARY. Built in 1872, this is a 150 year old Grand Victorian Mansion, former funeral parlor, and crematorium… surrounded by New Orleans’ famed “Cities of the Dead” and sits among more than a million graves in a one-square-mile radius. “Between 1930 and 2003, more than 20,000 funerals took place within its walls, the blood and bodily fluids of the dead swirling into a drain in the embalming room deep in the basement catacombs.” For many years, people from near and far journeyed to this breathtaking building to pay their last respects to dear departed loved ones.
The city’s most popular self-guided, dark attraction IS A NEW ORLEANS HALLOWEEN TRADITION! “It’s a Haunted House in a REAL Halloween Haunted House!” Since The Mortuary first opened its doors as a haunted attraction in 2007, it has been featured on the top ghost hunting shows including Discovery Channel’s Ghost Lab, Syfi Channel’s Ghost Hunters & Ghost Hunter’s International, The Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures and featured as one of America’s Scariest Attractions! It’s the perfect setting for a one-of-kind adrenaline pumping, nail-biting haunted house experience! Now add to what is undoubtedly a very scary environment to begin with, state of the art animatronics, theatrical sets, movie quality makeup, over-the-top special effects, unusual themes and details adds up to experiencing one of the most terrifying Halloween haunts ever. It has been heralded as one of the top, most realistic, Hollywood style destination haunted attractions in the world, year after year! Every season, this innovative horror experience continues to draw tens of thousands of thrill seekers anxious to see what new fright-mares have been unleashed!
“Upon entering the dark corridors of The Mortuary Haunted House, victims, I mean, guests will encounter the works of a twisted mortician named Ravencroft.”

In Loving Memory…
I dedicate this 2022 season to our dear friend Denise Guillerra who passed away suddenly this past March. Denise played Mrs Clause during the years we held Santa’s Secret Workshop she greeted and entertained families and children alike with wonderous stories of Santa and his Christmas miracles, encouraging the kids to be good for Mom and Dad. For many years Denise worked at The Mortuary as well. She will always be my Aunt Non and I will miss her smiling face. She was always there for me both personally and at the Mortuary. I know she is in heaven with her husband Howard.

"This is a really great haunt! I've been to many and this is a very unique one. Since it's inside a house the ups and downs make it feel very long and it's easy to lose your bearings, which is a good thing. This is a really excellent haunt and I highly recommend it!"Teegan L
