NO Zoo is a very good, small home for animals in a better than average botanical garden setting. Wildlife is the norm for zoos with one exception. The white tiger is a stunner. Don't miss him up and posing so be early.

This is a great zoo. There are a large variety of animals in attractive habitats. Most of the paths are shaded which is much appreciated

The zoo is well laid out & made it an easy walk through. We went on a weekday in October so the weather was nice & it was not very crowded at all. Most of the animals were visible due to the cooler weather. It was worth the trip down the St. Charles streetcar line to get to the zoo... More

We love the Audubon Zoo and their many critters. Staff is very nice. Don't miss the Red River Hogs and the pelicans. They've got too much closed off for construction at one time. Food prices are insanely high

One of the highlights of my trip to NOLA was the Audubon Zoo. Well designed, clean and kept, I can't rate this zoo higher. Personal favorite part of the zoo was the aviary with the beautiful birds. Great for all ages.

Great zoo! I'm generally not a huge zoo fan, but I have kids... so I go to zoos. I love the huge live oaks here which provide tons of shade and good atmosphere. And it's fun that the peacocks roam around free. Much cheaper than comparable zoos, too.

We love visiting zoos in our extensive travels, and consider this one of the better "mid-size" zoos in America. We put the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs and the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago at the top in this category, but the Audubon Zoo is very nice. We visited on a warm, humid day. The staff was surprisingly accessible... More

Tae the St Charles Street car to the zoo zoo and the park. A nice brea from the drinking along Bourbon Street. The park is big and well maintained.

I love the Audubon zoo. Besides being like a clean park, it is wide open and a fun place to be outdoors. From all the trails to see the different kindoms and domainsm to using the map they hand you at the front gate. There is plenty to see and good chance you won't see it all in a single... More

Our travel party was my husband and I and our 2 toddler boys. Audubon Zoo has a large variety of animals and their enclosures seemed very well done. If you couldn't see the animal from one side you could see it from several other different angles. There were very few that we couldn't see at all. The only complaints I... More
