Mardi Gras World:

Mardi Gras World has tours the entire family will enjoy! Both parents and kids get to learn the art and skill that goes into each and every one of the floats that make up the spectacular parades each year during Mardi Gras.

Open seven days a week from 9:30 to 5:30, Mardi Gras World allows for families to see where the Mardi Gras magic is made in just one hour!


Audubon Aquarium of the Americas:

Immerse yourself in an underwater world during your visit to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. The Aquarium is located right on the edge of the French Quarter with amazing views of the Mississippi River.

With features and exhibits for all ages, The World War II Museum makes history come to life.
