On the programme

The Voodoo Castle is a unique museum, hosting the largest private collection of West African Voodoo objects in the world. 

All the objects presented were used in religious practices: ancestor worship, medicine, divination, birth, witchcraft or other events related to major stages of life. Discover a little-known culture and a philosophy of life that is still widely practised today.

The collection, which originates from Ghana, Benin, Togo and Nigeria, reveals its secrets in an exceptional setting : an 1878 water tower. 

The collection of over 1200 objects belongs to the founders of the museum: Marc and Marie Luce Arbogast. The day-to-day running of the place is managed by the non-profit association "Friends of the Strasbourg Vodou Museum"


from 18 November 2022 to 8 October 2023

Those who are named “our Mothers” in Yoruba.

Those who are celebrated by the tradition of the Gèlèdè.

They are feared and respected because they possess a sacred power, the power of “ashè”1.

C'est un beau musée mais l'entrée est un peu chère

rien ne m'a déplu, c'est une sortie très sympa, je n'ai aucune difficulté pour faire la réservation


Accueil à revoir.

Mauvais accueil quand on a présenté notre billet au monsieur à l’accueil (C’était un jeune, soit disant qu’il travaille là depuis 5 ans). Mais c’était une bonne visite en soi.
