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

We visited the Audubon Zoo over our Spring Break and loved the experience! Even our son (who was only 7 months old at the time) enjoyed the trip. My 10 year old daughter especially loved the Primates area and the Louisiana Swamp. There was some construction going on -- but it didn't damper the trip at all. I hope that... More

We got to feed the otters and that was just great. The seals were amazing. The viewing of the other animals was very nice. The rhinos were more active than any I have seen...and I've been to lots of zoos.

The layout of the zoo allows you clear views of the animals. And the swamp area is terrific. You get the sense of being in the swamp, racoons staring down from the trees, alligators skimming through the green waters, black bears rolling around in their sleep under the trees .... without the mosquitoes! The other great advantage for parents is... More

After 6 months working with no days off, this place was the perfect first trip to take, in order to relax, see some nature and learn a few new things. I had no time to visit it all (the zoo is huge), but from what I have seen, it is a great place to visit, no matter the age. Asian... More

Love Audubon Zoo. Spent lots of time at the zoo with our granddaughters when they lived in New Orleans. Very clean, lots of animals, splash park area which is so nice. A great place to go while visiting New Orleans and its in the Garden District across from Loyola & Tulane.

The zoo is a lot of fun. They have great exhibits and even interactive areas where the family can touch the critters. The place is pretty big so bring lots of water or $$ because the cups of water are very small if you are lucky enough to get one. Louisiana is hot!!

I love checking out zoos in other cities. Seeing all the different animals in different regions is fun! The Audubon Zoo didn't disappoint. I felt like you could get really close to the elephants, gorillas, and tortoises to see them and get good pictures without gates and fencing in the way. The zoo did this in a way that still... More

One of the best zoos I've ever been to. Several open air exhibits. You can probably do the zoo in 3 hours and see everything easily. No lions though!

I spend time with my son almost everyweek in zoo. It's very good place for family. My son likes dinosaurs. There is dinosaur adventure and gift shop. We enjoy there every time.
