The award-winning Audubon Insectarium showcases the largest group of animals on the planet, insects! Since prehistoric times, insects have played invaluable roles: pollinating crops, decomposing waste and adding intrigue, color, texture and majesty to our world.

Your visit to the one-of-a-kind, interactive Audubon Insectarium will illuminate amazing things about these tiny (and not so tiny!) creatures; you’ll never think about them the same way again. Audubon Insectarium is the largest free-standing museum dedicated to bugs and their relatives in North America.

Located in the historic U.S. Custom House on Canal Street in downtown New Orleans, Audubon Insectarium will delight you with ‘up close and personal’ live insect encounters, the indelible story of the Crescent City and insects, and “Life Underground,” where you’ll be shrunk to insect size. Discover global insect customs, sample exotic insect cuisine, learn about the history of termites and the latest technologies used in pest control management. Take in a fun animated insect film at our immersion theater, traipse through the Louisiana swamp, enjoy the tranquility of our Japanese butterfly garden and watch hundreds of winged beauties as they flit about.
