Georgia Aquarium is the world's most magical aquarium. 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.

Nice place. I have seen better aquariums around the US, but this one is just ok. We found it to be small yet easy to navigate. Very busy on the day we went and we asked an attendant if it is always busy and they said yes. So be prepared to be in line and bumping into people.

Absolutely outstanding displays and awesome building. The marine life is tastefully and expertly shown to its full potential. Great experience. Only disappointment was seeing dolphins made to perform. Thought society had moved on from that!!!

The place is amazing. I was fortunate enough to have visited the aquarium for a private event and was very impressed with the entire experience. The exhibits are awe inspiring with a wide variety of ecosystems and species represented. The size of the tanks are huge with many viewing opportunities that are just spectacular. Definitely worth a visit if you... More

Having been to several aquariums, this definitely ranks up on the top of the list. Right by the World of Coca-Cola. Easy to do two places with one stop. A lot of parking available. A great family outing. Sea creatures beautiful, large and small. All the exhibits are amazing.

We visited on a rainy day so we didn't see the aquarium at its best. However, it was very interesting. The glass tunnel that allows you to walk through the main tank is amazing. There were at least 4 whale sharks swimming by - up close and personal! Much is geared toward young children, and the lunch options were not... More

Hubby and I were visiting Atlanta for 5 days. We heard/read rave reviews for the aquarium & decided to check it out. Having visited the Monterey Aquarium in the past, we seriously doubted this place could top it. I'm pleased to say that I was wrong...the Georgia Aquarium truly is the best aquarium in the US (& we've been fortunate... More

These large marine creatures can't be accommodated by smaller aquariums like ours in Chattanooga. A joy to see them. The facility is beautiful, and accommodates hordes of visitors with ease.
