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

I have always heard soo many great things about the Georgia Aquarium. I finally got the chance to take my 3 year old. My 3 year old enjoyed the 4d movie and the dolphin show the best! I thought the general admission was a bit pricey.

This place is well designed. Take your time going though the place. It took us about 5 hours to see everything including the 4D show and the dolphin show. The dolphin show we saw started at 5:30 and ended at the same time the place closed we where directed to the exits after so do all you can first including... More

Firstly, the content in the aquarium is beautifully presented and maintained. Very clean and with many of viewing locations. By far the biggest attraction is the marine tank which houses whale sharks, manta rays, and an assortment of other sharks and reef fish. The aquarium is split up into "pods" with individual sections each off of the main atrium.These are... More

I specifically came to the aquarium to see the main attraction: whale sharks! They did not disappoint. The rest of the aquarium was pretty standard. It's bright and beautiful inside, but other than the whale sharks (only place to see them in the US) and the Beluga Whales, you won't see anything too new in terms of animals. It's not... More

This was my fourth time visiting with friends from out of town but I'm never disappointed. I could stare at the large tank for hours, it's so peaceful except when kids are out of school and screaming/crying in this viewing area. The otters are always entertaining, the belugas graceful as ever, but the dolphin show is a waste of money/time.... More

I had a great time visiting. Well planned exhibits. Five different environments. Easy walking and educational material abound. A great time for families. I bought the city pass and saved some money.

I would recommend seeing this fabulous aquarium. Just beautiful..Great family fun and near the city center. Stop by the Olympic park center of the 1996 summer games.

So very much to see at the aquarium. If you can you should sign up to swim with the sharks or feed the fish or whatever they are offering at the time. Children and adults will love spending the day here. I hope if you visit Atlanta you will make this one of your stops.
