What we chose to do
We found it while searching for discounted tickets.
We booked the tickets on the previous day.
Our 10-year-old grandaughter was visiting us from Georgia.
We drove from our home, which is 39 minutes from downtown. We parked at Canal Place, which is close to both the Aquarium and Insectarium. Plus you can validate your parking ticket for $5 off (unless you go over 6 hours then you pay regular prices).
Everyone at the sites were helpful and nice.
It was a great experience for our granddaughter Lydia. She loved the Insectarium. She couldn’t wait to eat bugs! And loved the fried dragonflies.
The Aquarium was very crowded, but still wonderful as always. The movie we saw was Hidden Pacific, which we would highly recommend. It’s 40 minutes and very cool!
The zoo has wonderful family activities. The Insectarium was a first for us, and it was also wonderful.
I would recommend all of the activities to families and adults alike. These are high quality attractions with a wealth of information and fun.
It’s really important that you know the Insectarium is in a federal building, and you go thru a screening to enter the building.
