The Audubon Nature Institute is a family of museums and parks dedicated to exploring all aspects of nature. It consists of the Audubon Zoo, Aquarium of the Americas, Woldenberg Riverfront Park, Audubon Center for Research of Endangered Species, the Audubon Insectarium, and even an IMAX theater.
Among the country's best zoos, the Audubon Zoo contains the ultracool Louisiana Swamp exhibit, full of alligators, bobcats, foxes, bears and snapping turtles. The zoo has added some hi-tech attractions, including Safari Simulator Ride which allows passengers experience the sensation of joining a jungle mission through a gorilla habitat. The same simulator is also used to create virtual experiences like "H20 Odyssey", in which passengers experience life as a raindrop, among other themes.
The Audubon Zoo Cruise offers a unique way to see the zoo and the Aquarium of the Americas in a day. With a wide variety of parks dedicated to creatures of land, air, and sea, the Audubon Nature Institute is a great way to spend a day in New Orleans with kids in the swampy atmosphere of the South.
