Time flies – and crawls and buzzes, too!

Audubon Insectarium celebrates its third ANT-iversary June 11 and 12, 2011.

Visitors are invited to find the bugs wearing birthday hats throughout the Insectarium.

Audubon Insectarium opened its doors on June 13, 2008, the first major attraction to open in post-Katrina New Orleans. Since then, it’s been revealing the wonders of the insect world to thousands of guests through engaging exhibitry, awesome critters and imaginative programming.

Birthday activities are included in admission to Audubon Insectarium, which is $15.95 for adults, $10.95 for children ages 2 – 12, and $5 for Audubon Nature Institute members.
