This place is great for one of those rainy New Orleans days. The most visually impressive sight is the "panoramic tunnel of ocean" that you can walk through as you see all manner of wildlife swimming over and beside you. There are several rotating exhibits, as well as a glass-top Amazon rain forest replica. They are open from 9:30am to 6pm, Sunday through Thursday, and 9:30am to 7pm, Friday and Saturday. Admission prices for the aquarium only are $15 for adults, $8 for children, and $11 for seniors; the aquarium plus the IMAX theatre is $19 for adults, $12 for children, and $16 for seniors; and the aquarium plus the zoo is $20 for adults, $11 for children, and $15 for seniors.
