Audubon Aquarium in New Orleans

One of the top museums of its kind, Audubon Aquarium of the Americas is a state-of-the-art facility that plays host to 15,000 sea creatures, including penguins, anaconda snakes, neon frogs and rare white crocodiles. The half-million-gallon Gulf of Mexico exhibit provides up-close views of fully-grown sharks, while the Caribbean Reef tunnel offers an incredible glimpse of sea life from the perspective of deep-sea divers. Reach out and pet fearsome sharks and watch gracefully seahorses glide about in this colorful, aquatic wonderland.

  • Does the Aquarium feature endangered species?

    The Audubon Aquarium features several endangered species; however, none are more famous than the white alligator. Currently, only 18 of these pale-skinned reptiles exist in the Louisiana swamp. The aquarium also plays host to a number of rare neon-colored frogs and exotic birds in its Amazon rain forest exhibit.

    The Caribbean Reef tunnel is a 30-foot-long corridor that allows visitors to view Caribbean sea life from the perspective of deep-sea divers. See some of nature's most fascinating aquatic life swim gracefully overhead, while you stay safe and dry.
