It was not as good as I thought. Some of the things were closed and it seemed much smaller than the last time I visited.

I visit each time I'm in New Orleans... it's a wonderful aquarium!!! I urge everyone to reserve a Backstage Pass to meet an African Penguin, they are absolutely adorable! You'll get to meet one and also receive a penguin "original" painting that'll charm your socks...More

On our final of 5 days in NOLA, we had a bit of time to kill after our Steamboat Natchez river cruise. Aquarium was nearby and promised some respite from the heat and humidity. The displays were moderately interesting but for the price ($24.95 each/senior),...More

Lots of the aquarium is under construction, or else the sharks have power tools. No reduction in price for missing 20% plus of the museum. No age or AARP or Military discounts offered. Exhibits are Mayan Reef, Amazon Rainforest and River, Gulf of Mexico, seahorses,...More

Very nice exhibits. Do to some construction, the sea horse exhibit was sort of buried behind a wall.

I really enjoyed this aquarium. It wasn't very crowded when we went in August. There seemed to be a lot of things for kids to do and it wasn't overwhelmingly huge. We saw some interesting creatures and I really enjoyed the birds! The food court...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
