We enjoyed the experience very much. I took 3 other adults and although the displays and activities are geared more towards children, I felt like everyone had a great time and actually learned a few things as well. The highlights of the visit were the little cafe where we ate various insects(a thing I NEVER would have thought I'd do, willingly), the cute film shown in a theater with interactive seats, and the aviary over a shallow koi pool. The staff is well-informed and very friendly. The only negative thing I could say is that the amount of content was less than I expected, as it seems geared towards a child's attention span. We had a wonderful time.

Beautiful, clean, interesting, my only regret is not arriving earlier; I could have stayed all day!

From Our Editors

With its imposing, slate-gray façade, the 170-year-old U.S. Custom House may be the last building in which you’d expect to hear the delighted squeals of children. But behind the steely columns, the building erupts into 23,000 square feet of colorful displays and fluttering, scuttling insects, courtesy of the Audubon Society and Insectarium. In the Asian garden, hundreds of butterflies dodge shafts of sunlight to alight on tropical ferns and the shoulders of young visitors. And at the Insects of New Orleans gallery, visitors can ogle the pink katydids, cockroaches, and lovebugs that contribute to the city’s heritage.

These bug-filled displays are all part of the insectarium’s mission to conserve Louisiana’s indigenous species and inspire stewardship in its visitors. While adults can sate their curiosity with the vast array of exotic species, curators gear many displays toward young guests by making them lighthearted and interactive: the Field Camp’s entomologist answers questions about how to collect bugs or break up flea-circus strikes, and at Bug Appétit, chefs dole out insect-filled delicacies to adventurous palates.
