I have been to many many zoos but this zoo still managed to show me animals that I had never seen before and keep me engaged. The zoo is rather large compared to most zoos I have been too. We took our time going around the zoo and easily spent 4 hours looking at all the animals. My favorite part... More

We visited during an exciting time at the zoo. Lots of new construction going on, which makes me happy to see. Of course the animals at this zoo look happy and healthy in their own habitats. The staff and volunteers are friendly and knowledgable. I have loved this zoo since I was a little kid, and still do. I love... More

I've been coming to this zoo since 1972 and it continues to grow every year. The animal habitats are very nice and the animals seem to enjoy their space. They continue to crest and adventure for kids and families which is great to see. The swamp exhibit is great and they still have the white alligators on exhibit. Price is... More

We were pleasantly surprised after reading a couple of relatively negative reviews. We had a nice day at a nice zoo--the animals were active, the displays were fairly intimate with plenty of clear viewing and camera angles, and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The discounted tickets were a bargain, too. A couple of displays were closed for upgrades (sea... More

We have been to Nola several times and never made it to the zoo. We finally went, even though we are all adults! It didn't disappoint even though it was chilly. There were plenty of animals around and the size of the zoo was surprising! I would love to go back when it's warmer when all of the animals are... More

We absolutely love the Audubon Zoo. We continue to visit every other year or so and will do so as long as our children don't call us out ;-). There are some nice new features being added this year. I recommend visiting if you are in New Orleans with children.

I love Audubon Zoo! It is such a wonderful place to visit, spend time with family and friends and see some unique animals and enjoy the wonderful scenery and backdrops. More than just animals in cages or exhibits, the zoo does such a great job of placing the animals in more realistic and even forgiving habitats. They do a great... More

I don't normally go to Zoos or the Circus. This Zoo is an exception to that rule. Very nice place and the animals look very well taken care of here

Great after lunch place to stroll-off meal at one of Garden District's or Carrollton's or Magazine Street's great eateries.

Our trip started slowly, and it didn't get much better. We had been touring the Garden District for awhile, so we were ready to eat. We stopped at the first food stand by the flamingos. Unfortunately, there were only two girls working despite the fact that there were additional order windows. They were just understaffed. It was a long and... More
