If it walks, crawls or flies, there’s a good chances you will see it on display at the Audubon Insectarium in the Old New Orleans Customs House. It’s an incredible interactive experience that your children will love.

Utilizing the full 23,000 square feet of the historic, white marble columned structure in the 400 block of Canal Street, the Insectarium is the largest free-standing museum in the United States devoted to the 900,000-plus known species of insects and their relatives. It gives visitors up-close-and-personal glimpses into the lives of selected members of the largest grouping of living, visible, mobile organisms on earth. Featured are thousands of live insects, mounted specimens, interactive experiences and trained, expert personnel on hand to interpret the exhibits.
