The zoo was nice, however many of the exhibits were closed down. Half of the asian animal area, the sea lion exhibit, as well as one of the main areas: the white tigers. There were other small areas that were under construction as well. Other than that it was a nice zoo but like most zoos, the animals are not... More

This was a trio to remember. It is so incredibly pleasurable to spend the day here. Lots of fun for everyone, lots of species and landscapes to doe for. Good food and nice shops. Even though it was 102 degrees outside it was worth it.

There was something for everyone. You couldn't always spot the animals because their enclosures provide room and simulate the natural habitat, but we absolutely prefer that to cages. They have a couple of fun spots inside including a splash park and rope obsticle course for kids. A few exhibits are enclosed with air conditioning, which were welcome resting points. You... More

The Zoo was clean. The animals where out, they looked healthy and well taken care off. Great place kids of all ages. Plenty of shade. They were working on the elephant enclosure, which will be opened soon.

The Audubon Zoo was well-done from the perspective of caring for animals in their natural habitat. The zoo helpers educating were friendly and knowledgeable as well. It was brutally hot but worth the visit. Where the management of the zoo fell down and I mean big fall is that it is a large zoo and there are No, repeat, no,... More

The Audubon Zoo in New Orleans is flourishing with vegetation and the Cajun Swamp area is interesting with numerous varieties of Alligators. The primates are always entertains at any zoo. For the younger kids the cool water park looked like a lot of fun. Maybe it was the time of year but some of the big exhibits were closed, sea... More

Many Animals were different there and animals you'd expect, but also is very cool cause of all the trees that give cover so the parents could relax while your kids roam and look at animals. Also bring your swim suits for the awesome lazy river. Always, be safe, travel, and have fun.

The Audubon zoo is a very nice zoo. They have many different selections of animals and if you like reptiles they have a reptile house with many different species inside and it is air conditioned which is a plus! However I do recommend waiting for a cooler day to visit because the Louisiana sun can be very strong and it... More
