    During the Great Depression "Monkey Hill", an artificial hill, was built to show the kids of flat New Orleans what a hill looks like. Local folklore calls Monkey Hill the highest point in New Orleans.

    Come on a colder day (~50-ish° today) and you can see all the cats move around!

    If you haven't had the roman candy, you haven't lived. Vanilla, strawberry, chocolate... Doesn't matter.

    When the monkey escapes, they lock you inside until they catch him. He's a crafty little monkey. This is the second time he has escaped this year!

    If you plan on visiting the zoo, aquarium, and insectarium and have 5 or more people in your family, consider getting a membership. We are from out of town and used it for one week. It saved us money!

    May is a GREAT month to go. Always opt in for the feeding times and if you have small kids the arm bands are completely worth it!

    The new water park in the zoo is awesome. Took my grandson and I think I had more fun getting wet then he did. The best

    Kids had a blast!! They let you bring your own cookers of food for lunch. They also have peacocks walking around...this was the kids favorite part;-)

    Saturdays are very crowded so go during the week, if possible If you have children, bring a wagon and a small ice chest; it keeps everyone happy and cuts the cost of the visit.

  • Ashlee W.

    Make sure you feed the ducks and turtles! Not only are you having fun, but you support the wildlife funds too!

    Lions and Tigers and Bears...and White Alligators and Elephants and Gorillas, Oh My! Don't miss the world class Audubon Zoo. A perfect attraction for kids and adults!

    Really beautiful zoo. Most of the animals were asleep, though, due to the heat.

    It was sad to see how poorly maintained this zoo is. Poor animals. What are they doing with the membership funds?

    If you go during Mardi Gras it's almost empty, like having the park for the elite. Lol

    Pretty spectacular zoo in the swanky end of town, near Tulane and Loyola. Ride the streetcar down!

    Was there November 2nd and a lot of exhibits were closed. Wasn't the impressed. Have been to better zoos.

    Lack of signage to walk from St. Charles St. Trolley is astounding. Unless you ask around, you wouldn't know where to get off, which way and how far to walk. For a world class zoo you'd expect more.

    Cool zoo is so much fun! The kids loved the carousel too! Well worth the $!

    Get a frozen banana. I'm not a fan of zoos and this one did not change my mind. I do like it was clean but the enclosures are way too small for the animals.

    Real big. Wear good shoes.

    IMAX theater is not at zoo!! Bought tickets for both and could get to the theater on the same day. Not clear on website. Same with butterfly and insect exhibits, also charged extra. Gave those away.
