We took my 1 yr. old grandson to the aquarium for the first time and he had a blast. The price was good the afternoon was perfect. We all had a great time.

This was the only Audubon attraction that we visited, partly because we wanted to be inside given the hot and humid weather. My family really enjoys aquariums and we have been to a number throughout the US. I think this attraction had a good collection of exhibits and was about average to others. On the day we visited, it was... More

I think I've been to over 50 aquariums and this was the best. So many fish to see and a lot of awesome sharks.

Definitely a good way to beat the heat in the summer in New Orleans, but I was expecting a bit more care of the exhibits. Some of the windows were really dirty and there was a decent amount of trash on the walkways. The shark, turtle, large fish tank was really cool.

It is a very nice Aquarium with lots of cool exhibits. The 3d Theater is very nice as well. I feel its over priced and would not go there again.

Took our 2 year old grandson. Great exhibits, lots of interactive displays. LOTS of day camp kids the day we were there. Needs more crowd management in the entry area and the interactive play features.

If you are visiting with kids or without this is a great place to go. They have done a great job in the Aquarium & its worth the visit. Lots of different fish, nice exhibits. New Orleans can get very warm in the summer and this is a great venue to cool off, learn and see creatures from the sea.... More

We visited the aquarium on a Saturday in June -- which was clearly a mistake. The place was crammed with people, so many that viewing the exhibits was difficult. Lots of parents with very young children were in the crowd, several pushing double-wide strollers that often blocked the routes. It was not a pleasant experience.
