New Orleans Aquarium of the Americas

Recognized as one of the nation's leading aquariums, Audubon Aquarium of the Americas is located along the banks of the Mississippi River. The Aquarium contains numerous species from the Caribbean Sea, the mysterious Amazon Rainforest, and of course the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico.

Included within the 10,000 animals from 530 species are the Mississippi River gallery featuring paddlefish and alligators, the Caribbean Reef exhibit featuring a clear 30-foot-long tunnel surrounded by beautiful aquatic creatures, and the Gulf of Mexico exhibit boasting sharks, sea turtles and stingrays. There are also daily public animal presentations, feedings, and exhibits.
