In my opinion, this is one of THE best museums in the New Orleans area. A fantastic exhibit of aquatic life. The museum is divided into 'types' of water environments, and allows the opportunity to see beautiful and unique sea life close up. Specific to their region, they have a special exhibit of Mississippi River life that is conveniently poised for you to overlook the actual Mississippi River. A wonderful learning adventure. They also provide a 'scavenger hunt' activity you can print off of their website. Note: there is not a dolphin exhibit at this aquarium, but there are some sea turtles, sharks, penguins and much more. While visiting, I highly recommend watching the IMAX show about hurricanes in that area (theater is right next door to the Aquarium). It was truly moving and educational. I also found that if you purchase Aquarium tickets along with Insectarium, Zoo and/or IMAX tickets, that is the best discount. You can purchase them in any combination that you wish.

Not worth the money. Very disapointing. Go to the zoo instead it's great!

This is an awesome experience for both young and old alike. Not only can you see the creatures of the sea, but you can experience hands on activities, touch pools, and get up close. Our small group had the time to read about and discuss our favorite exhibits, as well as watch the majesty of some of the world's largest sea creatures. Compared to other aquariums, this is a bit smaller but you still leave in awe at what our oceans hold. You won't be disappointed!
