Audubon Aquarium of the Americas Review

The giant aquatic showplace perched on the Mississippi Riverfront has four major exhibit areas: the Amazon Rain Forest, the Mississippi River, the Gulf of Mexico, and the new Greaty Maya Reef gallery, all of which have fish and animals native to those environments. The aquarium's spectacular design allows you to feel like you're part of the watery worlds by providing close-up encounters with the inhabitants. A special treat is Parakeet Pointe, where you can get up close to hundreds of parakeets and feed them by hand. A gift shop and café are on the premises. Woldenberg Riverfront Park, which surrounds the aquarium, is a tranquil spot with a view of the Mississippi. You can combine tickets for the aquarium and the Entergy IMAX Theater ($27.50), but the best deal is the "Audubon Experience": aquarium, IMAX, Audubon Insectarium, and Audubon Zoo for $39.50 (tickets are good for 30 days).
