Situated near Centennial Olympic Park and World of Coca-Cola in downtown Atlanta,Georgia, Georgia Aquarium offers its guests an experience like no other. Across six separate galleries, with more than 70 amazing habitats, 10 million gallons of water and thousands of species of marine animals, guests will marvel at, learn about and come to better understand such majestic aquatic animals as whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, beluga whales, sea otters, African penguins and thousands of species of exotic fish and other animals. The spectacular AT&T Dolphin Tales show combines incredible natural animal behaviors with dynamic theatrics, a Broadway-inspired musical score and a compelling story, which together underscore the connection between humans and the animal world. The animated "Deepo's Undersea 3D Wondershow," for all ages, tells an entertaining but important story about conserving and protecting animals and their natural environment. Cafe Aquaria offers delicious sandwiches, salads, pizza, pasta and delectable desserts. Two gift shops give visitors the chance to take home a treasured collectible. Special animal encounter programs offer the chance to go behind the scenes and come face-to-face with dolphins, sea otters and penguins. Guests can even swim or dive with whale sharks and manta rays in the world's largest aquarium habitat (at 6.3 Million gallons), Ocean Voyager built by the Home Depot. And an onsite parking deck immediately adjacent to the aquarium means quick, easy-to-find and affordable parking. « less

We enjoyed our visit to the aquarium. Displays of so many different types of fish were very well presented. We saw many types of fish we were not familiar with and you could get up close with them some you felt you could almost touch! The dolphin show is to be recommended for children of all ages! There is a... More

Our family loves the aquarium, and has been several times. Go on Groupon for great deals on admission...saved our family about $20 on tickets and parking. I would definitely purchase online then print your tickets to avoid the lines. We went on a Monday after lunch and it wasn't crowded. Make sure you reserve your Dolphin Tales tickets, print them,...

Dannie and I decided to take Cora to the Georgia Aquarium. (I recommend getting a City Pass if you're going to be there a while and you want to see multiple attractions. It really drops the price.) The shows were superb, and the displays fascinating, but not to our 14 month old near-toddler. These were mommy and daddy treats, but... More

Pricey, but very good. They have a wonderful dolphin show, manta rays, exhibits, whale sharks, and adorable sea otters. No manatees. Beautiful aquarium, but rather pricey. We paid over $80 for two adults.

My wife and I visited the Georgia Aquarium while visiting Atlanta. You need to put this on your must visit list. While you are there make sure to see the Dolphin Tails Show. They are incredible.

Very well done the exhibits were excellent, so many different varieties of fish. It was busy on a Sunday but didn't ruin the experience. Would visit again!

This is the largest of its kind and it did not disappoint. We thoroughly enjoyed every exhibit. Great for families, kid friendly. It's a short walk from downtown Hyatt Regency Hotel. First class facility and they are big supporters of ongoing global research. Fantastic, it is a must see while visiting Atlanta!

Whale shark. Whale shark. Whale shark. Also, beluga whales. So beautiful. I feel kinda bad for them though, they were just swimming in circles. But the other fish seemed happy and their environments were beautiful and it was all so vast and has different sections for different aquatic areas like - river, deep ocean, ice waters, etc. The dining hall...

This is a great family attraction with lots to see. The aquarium is divided into different sections with the main attraction being the "Ocean Voyager" section which includes the massive tank which holds four whale sharks among many other species of fish - breath taking! The dolphin show was great although very cheesy at times - perfect for children but... More
