It's a brain child of the Audubon Nature Institute located in down town new orleans. i'll put pictures up once i get back home. It was nice and they really went all out with the decorations, but i really felt like it was geared for the average 12 year old. we went opening day so there will be many more insects coming soon which is great cuss they only had 2 spiders and 1 t a p. regalis. I think that this place can only get better and bigger, so i'm planing to come see it next year.
