Audubon Insectarium Photos (12)

For one of the best family vacation activities around, The Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium in New Orleans Louisana offers 23,000 square feet of exhibits and attractions, making it the largest insect museum in the United States. You will not only be able to see how the insects live, but will experience it first-hand in this interactive educational museum. The Life Underground Experience allows you to feel shrunken in size as you explore this over-sized exhibit.  You are placed in the insect's environment and will be introduced to a few surprises including a spider trap door.

The Butterflies in Flight exhibit is within a Japanese garden and displays several species of butterfly that are free-flying and allow for up close and personal viewing.  The roach races are a great interactive experience that is fun for all ages to participate in as well. If you are looking for an adventure in your dining experience the Cultural Café offers samplings of insect cuisine that are prepared in a unique cooking show like setting by a creative and curious chef.

There are many different galleries for you to explore at the insectarium, including the Hall of Fame Gallery, where you can encounter some of the biggest, fastest and most impressive bugs from around the world; Harr's Big Adventure, where a Chinese praying mantis will both entertain and educate; and the Louisiana Swamp Gallery, where you can meet some of the more local critters. You can also add to your experience by taking advantage of the Audubon Experience, which allows you to visit not only the Insectarium, but also the zoo, aquarium and the Entergy Giant Screen Theatre. Book today for one of the best family vacation new orleans offers.
