Audubon Aquarium of the Americas

1 Canal Street, New Orleans, 70130, LA

A popular attraction for families visiting New Orleans, the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas is the perfect indoor attraction for rainy days in the Big Easy. But even if it doesn’t rain on your parade, you still shouldn’t miss the chance to explore this gem of a city aquarium, which is conveniently located near the French Quarter on the banks of the Mississippi River (if you’re staying in the French Quarter, you’re just a stroll away from the aquarium). Noteworthy aquarium attractions include daily penguin, sea otter and stingray feedings; and Caribbean Reef, a glass tunnel surrounded on all sides by exotic ocean creatures and colorful coral. Aquarium tickets, which cost $24 per adult and $14 per child (ages 2 to 12), also include admission to the adjacent Entergy IMAX Theater.
