Audubon Butterfly Garden And Insectarium Reviews & Ratings
Absolutely beautiful. This was a nice break from the nightlife of Bourbon street and adds an element of fun for the entire family. The exhibits are educational but still entertaining. I was happy that it was way more than just butterflies. But the butterfly garden is amazing. I highly recommend.
The exhibits are creative and the flow of the displays let's you from tripping over other visitors. The are more live exhibits than I thought there would be. It's a good family outing if you're bringing kids, but still interesting for adults visiting. The butterfly garden was nice. I think the fish were the best part of the garden. It's a good place to spend a nice afternoon. Takes about two hours to go through if you look at everything.
Truly a gem, who would have thought insects could be so beautiful and fascinating! The butterfly garden is absolutely amazing, and the exhibits are so beautiful. I went with little enthusiasm but I left delighted. The staff here is also really stellar, they’re all so nice and they really care about the insects and are very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this place, even if you’re not a fan of insects, it’s a unique experience and a nice break from the city.
A great place to spend a couple of hours. So much more than just bugs behind windows. Be sure to watch the 4d movie experience too. If you get a ticket for the zoo and aquarium all on one ticket it works out to be $15 per thing which is excellent value. The staff were very knowledgeable. Not a huge place but you can expect to spend between 1 and 2 hours here
We had the opportunity to visit on national museum day for free! My daughter and I had never been. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as we marvelled at the intricate design of insects. The 4d video is trully full of surprises ! Children And adults will not be disappointed! My favorite is the butterfly garden. Apparently they are use to people taking pictures😍. In addition, Thank you for the pleasant workers!
