Audubon Aquarium of the Americas

Part of the Audubon Nature Institute, the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas provides "edu-tainment" for the whole family with a focus on the planet's aquatic life and a wide range of exhibits. Experience hands-on attractions like "Parakeet Pointe," where visitors can feed hundreds of exotic birds. "Geaux Fish" is a fun kid-friendly exhibit exploring LA's fishing industry. Get submerged in the "Great Maya Reef," a 30-foot tunnel through "ancient ruins" populated by moray eels, spiny lobsters and lion fish. "Frogs - Beyond the Green" features a plethora of amphibians. Get lost in America's largest museum devoted to insects and their relatives at the Butterfly Garden and Insectarium. Le Pavillon Hotel, close to Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, is the perfect home base for exploring the Aquarium, a calm retreat after a day spent learning about the wonders of the deep.
