Tips for Families

I would plan a 5 day visit at least, unless you live near by. I would buy the all inclusive tickets. Also see City Park, the Art museum, WW2 (with older kids) and Mardi Gras World.

Best Aquarium EVER and I have seen quite a few!

Tips for Families

Don't worry about lunch. There is a great little eatery right there onsite that offers anything a kid could want. Don't miss the gift shop. The products are not too pricey and there is a lot to choose from. Don't forget to turn off your camera flash. The pictures of glass tanks do NOT like the flash and you will not get a good picture.

Easy to navigate but be prepared for crowds

Tips for Families

If you are planning to visit the Audubon Zoo and Insectarium, consider purchasing a combo pass to save money. Plan to spend at least two hours exploring the aquarium.

Audubon Aquarium is fun for everyone

Tips for Families

Go early for less crowd. If you want to feed the sting rays buy your tokens early, sometimes they sell out.

My daughter kept telling me this aquarium was boring and I kept  brushing off her opinion as that of a  teen that  is hard to impress. Well, she was right. It is kind of boring. They do have cute otters, stingrays to pet, a massive gift shop and some nice exhibits. But, you can easily see everyt...

I'm a supporter of the Audubon Nature Institue and that includes the Aquarium of the Americas. I picked up a membership for myself and my girlfriend to attend the Audubon family which is worth every penny. The Aquarium may not be as big as others I've been too (the Georgia Aquarium is HUGE) but it's still filled with great exhibits. My two favorites are the penguins and the otters, Buck and Emma. I love the penguins and their dapper little tuxedo styled feathers. I can spend hours watching them play and swim. Plus one of the rock penguins is named Dennis! The otters are equally fun to watch. Catch them during feeding if you can. Buck and Emma are quite active most days and genuinely love their environment an...

This is a good local attraction and for those who haven't visited an aquarium in a while.  They have a nice shark tank, some well themed exhibits (ie: a misty Amazon rainforest) and even a sting ray touch pool.  I felt th...

It's amazing to think that they basically had to restock this entire Aquarium after the tragedy of Katrina. Five stars hardly do it justice. It's one of my favorite aquariums. They start you off with a bang where you walk right through the fish and ray tank. You're part of the exhibit right out of the gate. Other highlights include the sea horses, the huuuuuuuuuge shark tank (why thank you) , the penguins and the Mississippi river exhibit. That last one has a white alligator, a place where the heal up birds of prey (red tailed hawk and horned owl currently) and has a big window overlooking Old Blue (You're my boy Blue!) It's a great place for kids and families too. Note: If you are going to visit the other A...

When compared to the New England Aquarium or similar, Audubon shouldn't even be called an aquarium. When I went with my nephew last week, many of the exhibits did not even have fish or animals in them. Many of tanks / glass were dirty. There was only one sea otter in the "sea otters" exhibit and the viewing area was up too...
