Audubon Aquarium of the Americas

The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas focuses on the aquatic life of both North and South America. Located on the banks of the Mississippi River on the edge of the French Quarter, it is run by the Audubon Society and is one of the United States’ best known aquariums.

There are over 10,000 animals from more than 530 species on display, including sea otters and African penguins. Exhibits are grouped by habitat, including a Gulf of Mexico section with a 40,000-gallon tank showcasing the sharks, rays and turtles of the region. There is also an Amazon River and rain forest exhibit complete with a greenhouse; a colorful Caribbean reef area with a glass tunnel to walk through; and a Mississippi River gallery featuring area wildlife such as catfish, paddlefish and the famous white alligator. Whichever area you visit, you will be immersed in the underwater world.

Practical Info

The aquarium is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission costs $25 for adults, $16 for children and $17 for seniors.
