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

The Georgia Aquarium is a top notch entertainment destination. Their Sea Monsters exhibit was terrific. If you can, attend a lecture in their meeting rooms downstairs. I went to the Science On Tap lecture and it was fantastic.

Not a lot to do or see if you are not young. Group like it. Not much for teenagers. Dolphin show was interesting.

Took my 3 kids (one young child 2 teens) to the aquarium in Atlanta. It was very nice and my youngest enjoyed the play area. Did the dolphin show and spent several hours there. Worth the money. And would go again. But not as nice as the one in the Inner Harbor.

I really could have gone with seeing the dolphin show, the theatre is cramped, seats are uncomfortable and the show lacked something. Prices are very high in the cafeteria. The rest of the aquarium I felt I needed more time to visit, loved loved loved the p enguins and the whale sharks. I could spend all day looking at those... More

We visited 5 places with Atlanta CityPass. GA Aquarium was the best of the best. Adults and children enjoyed all of it. The dolphin show was spectacular!

Our local dive shop booked a trip for 14 of us to experience diving in the big tank with the Whale Sharks. This was an incredible experience. We had a behind the scenes tour as well with our ticket. They provide all your equipment, a towel and nice clean locker rooms to shower in after the dive. The staff was... More

I know it costs a lot to maintain the Aquarium but this did seem a tad expensive. I think the seats in the Dolphin Tales performance need to be bigger--the lady next to me was sitting halfway on me because her chair wasn't large enough. People are sitting way too close. I loved watching the dolphins in the show but... More

We had an enjoyable visit at Georgia Aquarium. I initially thought that the tickets were a little pricey, but after spending the day, I decided that it was well worth the price. Since I purchased our tickets online, we did receive a discounted price. You have to give an estimated time of arrival this way, but it worked out well... More

I visit aquariums wherever I go, no matter how small. Having seen sine amazing things and hearing phenomenal praise of the Georgia Aquarium, I had very high expectations. All areas if the aquarium met my expectations...except the dolphin show. The show itself was cheesy and didn't showcase the dolphins' skills and smarts as others do. The show actually did a... More
