Now Hiring - The Mortuary Haunted HouseTHE MORTUARY is an icon of old New Orleans at the very dead end of world famous Canal Street. Less than 3 miles from the enchanting French Quarter on the cemetery streetcar line, this magnificent mansion was originally built in 1872 and operated for about 80 years as an actual MORTUARY. The venue operates year round in three fashions: A spectacular themed special event venue known as Mystere Mansion, an attraction that houses Live Escape Games known as Mystere Escape Rooms, and during the Halloween Season… The Infamous Mortuary Haunted Mansion.

It’s the perfect setting for a one-of-kind adrenaline pumping, nail-biting haunted house experience! The property is surrounded by actual graveyards known in New Orleans as “The Cities Of The Dead.” 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.
