Audubon Nature Institute's Aquarium of the Americas and Entergy IMAX® Theatre reopened today after an 8 month shutdown forced by Katrina.

Louisiana's Number 1 tourist destination

Aquarium of the Americas Located along the banks of the Mississippi River near the historic French Quarter, the Aquarium of the Americas is regarded as the nations best and considered one of the foremost aquariums in the world. It had 10,000 fish representing more than 530 species and featured four enormous exhibits -- Mississippi River gallery featuring catfish, paddlefish and alligators; the Caribbean Reef exhibit featuring a clear, 30-foot-long tunnel surrounded by aquatic creatures; the Amazon Rainforest display featuring piranhas and tropical birds; and the Gulf of Mexico exhibit featuring sharks, sea turtles and stingrays -- in addition to a number of smaller displays.

Entergy IMAX® Theatre is located next door to Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and is one of only six in the world with its spectacular flat screen, single projection, IMAX® 3D and high-definition capabilities.
