We bought the Audubon Experience ticket ($39.50) which includes entrance to the zoo, aquarium and insectarium. They were all great and the zoo is having lots of work done to make it even better. Very well themed and the enclosures were very well designed. It's also near to the beautiful park. We got the streetcar to the end of the... More

My 14 year old loved this zoo and I was so tired following her around in the heat, but I kept going because she was so enraptured with the animals and the way the zoo was structured. They are doing some remodeling so we were disappointed not to see the elephants, but the orangutans made up for it...so active and... More

We had originally planned to spend half a day at the Audubon Zoo, but the zoo and the weather were so nice we spent all day there. The zoo is beautiful, clean, spacious and well organized. The larger animals had plenty of room to roam around. We checked the daily activities sheet and we all watched a bull snake being... More

I love zoos! Audubon Zoo is VERY nice! One of the displays was closed because of construction. I saw some animals that I have never seen in the zoo, which were wild dogs and monitar lizard. The orangatan and gorillas were my favorite. The orangatan's were showing out. I could have watched them and the gorilla's all day. Beautiful zoo.... More

Audubon is a large zoo with some excellent exhibits. It's an extensive property that's well shaded and even has some amazing, centuries old oaks on the property for climbing and play. The exhibits are interestingly incorporated into the surrounding space and comes off as being quite natural (or as natural as it can get to find something like a giraffe... More

Go with or without the kids just to take a nice walk and spend some time away from Bourbon Street! The area is gorgeous.

Travel to the zoo from the French Quarter/Canal street is super easy and should just involve a streetcar from Canal to Audubon Park, then a free shuttle or short walk to the zoo itself. Unfortunately with roadworks currently in progress (July 2014) (that have been going for a year it seems) you need to get off the streetcar and take... More

We loved our day at the zoo!! We recommend it for couples and families. Very clean, staff was friendly, the Zoofari Café was a good place to eat. They offered healthy choices.

Decided to try this zoo out on the way home from Destin. Picked it over the zoo in Gulf Shores. We made the best decision!! This zoo was amazing. My kids loved it. Be ready to put a lot of walking in. There is a lot to see. It was worth every penny. It's a must see place, especially for... More
