Kids love it! 11/14/2008

What a terrific way to spend the day by the river! My kids not only love looking at all the fish inside the acquarium, but they get a kick out of watching the ships go down the river, too. This place is hard to beat and we visit several times a year. We've found out that the neighborhood is full of kid-friendly places, too. There's the new insectarium, the La. Children's Museum, and Chez Clay paint-your-own-pottery studio all within ten blocks of each other. It's hard to keep the kids home, with all this fun close by! more

Not exactly a great aquarium. Update this site. 3/20/2008

Need to update this site. This site said 3 hrs free parking at the Wall of Whales with ticket stub...we were still charged $5.00 and were under the 3 hrs. This site also gives incorrect admission prices because we arrived at 4 p.m. and for 2 adults / 2 children it was $70.00 including the 3D IMAX. This site says $16 for adults and 9.50 for children...actual cost-$22.50 for adults / $17.50 for children not including IMAX (extra for IMAX). We would've at least expected a partial discount for arriving late, but no. The IMAX Whales & Dolphins 3D movie was interesting but the 3D parts actually left us having to close one eye and with a headache. We will not be returning and if you've been once you definitely do not need to go again. Look to Chattanooga's amazing aquarium or the new one in Atlanta, GA. Pros: on the RiverWalk Cons: to pricey more

Amazing experience 11/17/2006

I was taken here by my parents on a schoolday in the fall so it wasn't very crowded. As I understand it, it gets insane in the summer and on weekends. I'm not sure if I'd want to go then. I remember walking through the giant tube with the massive tank of every kind of fish imaginable. The sting ray exhibit alone was worth going for. more

Don't visit on a rainy saturday 7/12/2004

My family made the mistake of going on a rainy Saturday. The place was so overcrowded you could not see the exhibits let alone read about them. There were crying kids everywhere. Parents with strollers blocking the view. It was a terrible experience. I have been to several aquariums and this one is probably good if I could have seen the exhibits. If I return it will be during a school day and hopefully not so crowded. I Think the managers should come up with some form of crowd control. Pros: probably the exhibits Cons: , crowded more

fantastic 10/22/2002

I live in Oregon...the free willy state...this aquarium puts the Oregon Coast Aquarium to shame. It is absolutely fabulous. I couldn't pick the best part...all of it was amazing. The white alligator, shark and sting ray tank, the amazon river....those fish are amazingly ginormous! This place is a must see for everyone...even for those of us who live by an aquarium. Walk or ride the street car trolly thing...enjoy the beautiful Mis'sippi river. Pros: handicapped friendly, great for everyone, priced fairly more

SIMPLY THE BEST 8/23/2002

EVERY TIME I GO HERE, I COME HOME TOTALLY AMAZED. IT CHANGES CONSTANTLY AND THE VARIETY OF SEA LIFE IS SIMPLY ASTOUNDING. more

unbeleivable 8/12/2002

What a geat place. You can go back many times and still not see it all. I never was really into fish until going to the Aquarium. Now I am hooked. more

Gotta see this! 8/8/2002

Really a neat way to spend an afternoon. My daughter and I enjoyed it very much. Pros: riverwalk outside Cons: expensive more

Alright 8/7/2002

The aquarium was fine. You get to see huge sting rays, plenty of sharks, and a white alligator. There are some pretty interesting things to do like touch a shark and starfish. However there is one major fault, its really small and you can see the whole aquarium in less then one hour. Honestly, unless you are going as a family it is not worth the money or time. more

UNDER THE SEA 8/5/2002

AQUARIUM OF AMERICAS HAS A GREAT VARIETY OF SEA LIFE. THE SHARK FEEDING TIME IS MY FAVORITE. THE STINGRAYS ARE HUGE. AND IF YOU HAVE TIME STOP BY THE IMAX THEATRE, 3-D MOVIE THEATRE. IT'S WELL WORTH THE MONEY. THERE'S ALSO SPECIAL PACKAGES WITH THE AQUARIUM, ZOO, AND IMAX. more

Hands On 7/23/2002

This aquarium lets you touch under water creatures. You can see a lot of creatures that you might never have gotton to see. For example the sea horses are extrodinary. I have never seen some of those sea horses. Great place for the family to visit. Pros: Not to Crowded Cons: Bad Parking, Expensive more

Water Water Everywhere 7/23/2002

At reasonable prices you won't want to miss such a treat. It's something that the family can all do together. You'll want to dress comfortably... especially shoes.....because there is lots of walking. Pros: lots to see, easy to get around, rest rooms more

Tunnel Vision 7/22/2002

The huge plexiglass tunnel that you walk through when first entering the Aquarium of the Americas is unique for seeing the many types of fish that are swimming all around you. If you get there at feeding time, you see divers in the tanks with fish coming to eat from their hands. One of the most enjoyable things is to look at the faces of the young children as they walk through the tunnel. Their eyes seem to get twice as big as they stare at the fish all around them. Don't miss the otters upstairs, they are super cute. And if you want a snack, there is an outdoor patio upstairs where you can munch out and view the Mississippi River. Also next door is the IMAX theater if you have time. Pros: In French Quarter, On the Miss. River, Nearby Parking Cons: Closes at 6pm, No drop off point, Only fast food inside more

More than fish 6/6/2002

The aquarium was wonderful! There are many exhibits which are both informative and fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age. It is obvious that the zoo/aquarium are one of the top 5 in the nation. more
