Create an itinerary including Audubon Zoo
Home to more than 2,000 animals, Audubon Zoo is named after famed artist and naturalist John James Audubon. The zoo created a name for itself by providing a home for a white tiger and two blue-eyed alligators. During Hurricane Katrina, zoo staff took refuge in the reptile house, which is designed to withstand storms. Despite financial setbacks after the storm, the zoo reopened and added a swamp exhibit with a themed Hurricane Katrina house and a collection of local species.

  • As a zoo lover I always try to visit a zoo when traveling. The NOLA Zoo is very accessible to those in wheelchairs with its many paved paths. There is a wide assortment of wildlife to be viewed here.....  more

  • Update: We visited again in March a little before noon. There were lots of people but the weather was cool with a little breeze. All of the animals were playful and out in the habitat so easily seen. Even though there were a lot of guests the cool air and playful animals had everyone in friendly moods, talking and sharing experiences. What a great day we had! Great place to bring the kids. It's got a lot to do as well as a lot of animals to see. We went in July and it was very hot and humid but we still had a great time. Online price is a good deal. Family membership is well worth the money.
  • I've been to quite a few zoos in my travels, and Audubon Zoo stands out as one of the best. I was thoroughly impressed-- beautiful grounds and displays, a wide range of animals and habitats, friendly and informative staff members, and a good selection of visitor amenities. Each major section of the zoo makes you feel as if you were transported to a far flung destination where you can see animals in their natural habitats. Simply amazing! We can't wait for our next visit here!
