Description
Audubon Aquarium of the Americas Photos (12)

Visit the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas for the best activity for kids in New Orleans and you can learn all about the underwater creatures of North and South America in a fun and interactive environment. The aquarium is home to the Caribbean Reef, which features a 30-foot long aquatic tunnel that brings you up close and personal with the aquatic creatures that call the aquarium home. You'll also get to see animals such as seahorses, jellyfish, sharks, frogs, penguins, sea otters and much more.

There are many different exhibits at the aquarium you can enjoy during your visit. Get hands-on experience with exotic birds, discover piranhas in a waterfall pool, become a pirate and feed the rays, see the endangered King Mydas, a green sea turtle, at the Gulf of Mexico Exhibit and more. The Audubon Aquarium is filled with life and color, from all different parts of the world. Besides the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, you can also visit an Amazon Rain Forest, learn about life in the Mississippi and watch penguins play in weather that may be a little too cold for you to make a home in.

Other exciting attractions at the aquarium include a hurricane simulator, in which you can feel gusts of wind reach 79 miles per hour in 60 seconds, take pictures of your family members riding a wave, or a shark, and meet up with some of the slimiest, stinkiest, grossest creatures in the animal kingdom. There's so much to do at the Audubon Aquarium, and you can also add to your experience by visiting the other area attractions such as the zoo, Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and Entergy Giant ScreenTheatre with the Audubon Experience for a great New Orleans family vacation package.

"Loved the aquarium."
Loved the aquarium...But hate that all these attractions close so early. In the summer, you'd think they'd stay open at least until dark. Families do come to new orleans with children and are not interested in the night life on bourbon street. These family attractions should cater to families not just the party crowd. My opinion.
