Audubon Aquarium of the Americas
1 Canal Street
New Orleans, Louisiana, 70130
The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas is an aquarium in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is run by the Audubon Institute, which also supervises the Audubon Zoo, Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium and Audubon Park (in a different part of the city).
It is located along the banks of the Mississippi River by the edge of the historic French Quarter off Canal Street, at the upper end of Woldenberg Park.
Several scenes of Werner Herzog's 2009 film Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, starring Nicolas Cage, were filmed inside the aquarium. It also features in the tenth episode of the TV series Life After People, in which, without people to feed or clean the tanks of the animals, they would all be dead within one year with the white alligator being the last to die.
