Audubon Aquarium of the Americas
Audubon Aquarium of the Americas is a world-class aquarium with state-of-the-art exhibits, allowing visitors young and old to experience underwater nature first hand. Visitors immerse themselves in the major marine and submarine habitats of North and South America, including the Caribbean Sea and the Amazon Rainforest. The aquarium also features thousands of fish, reptiles, and birds native to these habitats.
This Aquarium is wonderful. I loved the McCaw birds they know hope to strike a pose for the camera.
We took my 87 year old father and he love it. This is truly a place for children of all ages .Our family ranges from ages 16 to 87.
We will be back inDec. 2010 and the next year. This is a great value
I took my daughter and granddaughter for a visit, found it nicely laid out and easy to follow. Attractions were open and plenty to see and visit. Atmosphere was quite relaxing. It did take us about an hour and half to go through the aquarium but well worth it. Granddaughter got a delight in trying to pet the baby stingrays zooming along, nurse shark must have been a bit cranky, nearly turned on my granddaughter but it's caretaker was keeping a very careful watch and warned us in time, there's even a small play area for the children, nice gift shop. Great place to visit and cool off after walking the French Quarter in the humid heat and not far at all from the other interesting places in French Quarter. We were even treated to a small treat afterwards by a very elderly African-American gentleman who sang a bluesy-soul song to us outside.
In my opinion this is the best thing to do as a family in New Orleans. The Big Easy is my favorite city but it is not very family friendly at times. This is always a great place for children and adults to enjoy. Everyone is very courteous and polite. Always something new to see.
As a native of the area I moved away due to my going into the military, but it doesn't stop me from visiting and since I have children now I educate them on New Orleans rich history. They love the aquarium and insist on visiting every time.
I live in Lafayette and we visit every so often. I never realized how expansive the exbits are until we visted one in California. The entire exhibit would fit comfortably in my house! The Aquarium of the Americas is the kinda place you could loose yourself in for hours...
This place could take up over two hours of your time easily if you indulged in all the informative ways the exhibits were displayed; plenty of guides with lots of information also; interaction with some species which appeal to children of all ages!
We loved everything about it. It was so educational and hands on my son eyes were not big enough to see it all.I have 4 kids in all and only 1 had the chance to experience this but when my son came back and told the others and they saw our photos of the trip, they want to visit also. At one point I think that I was more excited han he was because I have never seen penguins and jellyfish in real life! It is an experience he and I will never forget and I can't wait to take the rest of my kids.
