My family and I went to the Zoo in April of 2004. It was a little crowded, but not too bad considering we went on a weekend trip. We had 3 children ranging in ages from 1-8 and we all...

Aquarium of the Americas - expert review
Power failures during Katrina resulted in the major loss of the Aquarium's collection of more than 7,000 aquatic creatures. In a dramatic gesture of solidarity, aquariums around the country joined together with the Aquarium of the Americas in an effort to repopulate its stock, and this wonderful fam...

Aquarium of the Americas - user review
I thoroughly enjoyed this aquarium as much as I enjoyed the zoo. This aquarium had sea life from all over the world divided into separate exhibits. There was a beautiful glass tunnel that surrounded you with species of the Caribbean. The jellyfish exhibit was amazing. There were some of the biggest ...

We visited this zoo last week. The admission price was far less than our local Zoo Atlanta and I feel the Audubon is a far superior zoo!! The grounds are much more attractive and wh...

Audubon Louisiana Nature Center | Museum/Attraction Review | New Orleans | Frommers.com - expert review

Audubon Zoo | Museum/Attraction Review | New Orleans | Frommers.com - expert review
Its been more than 20 years since the Audubon Zoo underwent a total renovation that turned it from one of the worst zoos in the country into one of the best. The achievement is still worth noting, and the result is...

Exotic Animalia - user review
What a great zoo! Not only did we see nearly every animal on exhibit, but we were able to interact with many of them. Be sure to visit the animals during feeding, which is announced in...

Formerly the plantation of Etienne de Boré, the father of the granulated sugar industry in Louisiana, Audubon Park is a large, lush stretch of green between St. Charles Avenue and Magazine Street, continuing across Magazine Street to the river. Designed by...

Aquarium of the Americas - user review
The Aquarium of the Americas doesn't try to encompass the world of fish, just North America and the Amazon. It is rated as being in the top 5 Aquariums [in the world]. Enter into the Atlantic, and climb the stairs to the Amazon. From there, go back 'inside' to see the penguin exhibit and the Pacific...

Please visit the zoo - user review
We have been visiting Audubon Zoo at least once per year the past 5 years. The zoo did get some damage with Hurricane Katrina and some animals were away at other zoos in the USA o...

Interesting but confusing - user review
Personally, the first thing that comes to mind when I think of this zoo is CONFUSION. It looks like it has the potential to be a nice zoo, but it was just so confusing and the map kept...

I feel that Audubon Zoo is a great place for a child to grow up and visit on the weekends and summer time. The zoo is a positive environment for a child of any age. As well as very ed...

This zoo is truly a work of art, but sometimes I wondered whether they haven't spent too much effort making the place look good, and not enough on making it a great zoo. Maybe the pr...

A zoo that cares - user review
My friend and I went to the zoo on a whim. We work for the media, and we had a day off. New Orleans was hosting the American Zoological Association conference that week, and we showed u...

Aquarium of the Americas - user review
On the Mississippi River, right outside the Frech Quarter, lies this aquarium with all the wonders of nature. Kids will love the sharks, giant jelly fish, darting clown fish, and sea horses. Everyone that brings a kid to Sin City should take the kid here for some good clean fun. Try going to the aqu...

Great Aquarium - user review
This Aquarium is definitely one that is amazing. There are so many different things to see that it will keep you entertained for hours. I absolutely loved the underwater tunnel an...

Aquarium of the Americas - user review
Not only is the aquarium is a great indoor attraction when you need to get out of the heat or away from the hustle of downtown New Orleans, it is a destination in and of itself. Inside is quiet and soothing with a number of ecosystems represented. From the Amazon to the Louisiana River Delta, there ...

Audobon Park | Museum/Attraction Review | New Orleans | Frommers.com - expert review
Across from Loyola and Tulane universities, Audubon Park and the adjacent Audubon Zoo sprawl over 340 acres, extending from St. Charles Avenue all the way to the Mississippi River. This tract once belonged to city founder Jean-Baptiste Le Moyn...

Aquarium of the Americas - expert review
Visitors can get a close-up look at thousands of creatures from the depths of the ocean. A tunnel made of see-through acrylic delivers you into the aquatic action of the Caribbean Reef exhibit. Jumbo stingrays skim overhead, and sharks lurk just beyond the walls, whisking right past your nose. VITAL...

Not Up to its Billing - user review
We visited the Audubon Zoo on June 3, 2005. We took the ferry from the Aquarium and found that to be an enjoyable start to the day. The zoo is an easy walk from the ferry landing. We found ...

Animals by region an interesting concept - user review
The zoo is generally organized by habitat, so for example swamp animals are together, and savannah animals, and so on. Small enough to do in a few hours. A few pointless exhibits, l...

Aquarium of the Americas - user review
As if New Orleans didn?t have enough world-class attractions, it also features a top-5 rated aquarium. If your idea of an aquarium is a couple of tanks with a few colorful fish in them, then you really need to visit this aquarium. Like the zoo in New Orleans, the aquarium is set up in themes. You s...
