Description: The Go Fish Education Center takes visitors on an educational journey...
The Go Fish Education Center takes visitors on an educational journey through Georgia's watersheds to learn about our diverse aquatic wildlife, their natural habitats and the impacts of water pollution. Beyond that, the Center serves as a great resource of fishing information for any level of angler - where to go, what to use and when. We have over 170,000 gallons of aquatic exhibits that feature fish from the mountains, piedmont, coastal plain and swamp habitats of Georgia. We also have freshwater and saltwater fishing simulators, hunting simulators and a pond where you can try out your fishing skills. We are a Georgia Department of Natural Resources Facility. Open hours are Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm. Tuesday - Thursday we do field trips or group tours. These need to be scheduled in advance.

A great, educational experience for kids of all ages. Inside there are a few interactive displays where you can deep-sea fish or hunt; a viewing area to see the fish hatchery. Outside there are aquarium displays with different fish and a few alligators. Out in the back is a small, stocked pond for fishing (poles & bait provided). From what... More

Fabulous! fabulous ! Only open to the public on Fri,Sat, Sun Georgia sure got it right by building this educational facility. It is a clean aquarium with fish native to Georgia with lots of text next to the viewing areas. It also has a movie-target shooting range with laser(?) guns for your use as well as one for fishing.

My usual “gang” of family members (hubby, three children and in-laws) tried out the Go Fish Georgia Education Center in Perry, Georgia, this July Fourth weekend. My FIL, hubby and sons are avid outdoorsmen (fishing and hunting), so they really wanted to see this facility; however, we were all disappointed with this center. Our visit began with an 8-minute movie,... More

What a delight to have such a fantastic educational and fun center so close to home! This is truly a must for anyone who wants to learn more about our lakes and rivers and the fish that are in them? Fun activities for children!

We go here quite often. It is very affordable for a day out with the family. The kids enjoy very much the fishing pond even though they never have aught anything yet. The virtual game room is an added plus for all ages.

Loved the setup for reeling in practice and the live fish. There was a little alligator too, and a pond to fish.

Took the grandchildren and they had a blast, we had to pull them away as well as their grandfather. The only thing to be careful of if you go during fair time it might be hard to find the entrance, it would help to have a few more signs.

We needed a break, so I veered off the highway on a whim when I saw the GoFish road sign. Sure glad I did! The education center was both educational and fun, with lunique hands-on exhibits and aquariums both indoor and outdoor. We tried our hand at simulated deep sea fishing, checked out a fish hatchery, went on a virtual... More
