There aren't may zoos where you will see a White Bengal Tiger and a white alligator! The exhibits are beautiful, lovely grounds with lots of trees for shade and a few for kids to climb (by Monkey Hill). There is a new splash park for kids to cool off, too. The restaurants serve the usual zoo fare plus some local... More

this zoo was very good but there are some areas with nothing in them. when the ticket rep gives you the map, ask about areas with no exhibits so you can avoid these unnecessary walks; there is A LOT of walking in this zoo.

The Audubon zoo is a nice zoo that you can go around in about an hour and a half. If you have kids that like animal, or you like to visits zoos it is a nice clean zoo. It is not like some of the major zoos of the world, but you will have a nice afternoon looking at the... More

Audubon Zoo in New Orleans is one of the better zoos in the US. There are specialized exhibit areas that one can explore in detail depending on their interests. I say explore them all and enjoy the fauna from different continents and regions. Don't forget to view the white tigers and the albino gator.

We took our grandsons to Audubon Zoo. We all had a great time. The zoo is well laid out and easy to navigate. The boys particularly liked the petting zoo area. They don't often have an opportunity to pet chickens and goats, so that was a treat.

Overall a good trip. We had a group rate which helped with the value. Our zoo (St. Louis) is free. The map I was given was hard to follow. The most important thing is the kids had a good time. The trolley ride to the park made the journey fun.

Having been to this zoo as a child, I know what a long way it has come! This zoo is beautiful today and is an example to zoos across the country of the way a zoo should look and be run.

Took my 3 children ages 8-14 and spent 4 hours walking around looking at all the exhibits. It was July and hot but there were water misters all over the place and a waterfall we waded in to cool off. Concessions are all over the facility if we needed drinks. They had animal shows and feedings at various times which... More
