Owner description: 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.

Kids area was closed, but it didn't mention this on the website. Food prices were ridiculous. $4.50 for a bottle of juice that costs $1.50 at a convenience store. At least the stroller check in area was nice. The Dolphin Tales Show was scary for little kids, but the dolphins were amazing. Why is there some guy singing??

A friend told us, if we ever go to Atlanta, to check out the aquarium. We have been to some of the best in the US. This was the best! The way it is laid out and the variety of the exhibits and the education you get is awesome! There are 6 million gallons of water used to make a... More

Got the early bird special and arrived at 10am. Perfect time to go for little ones. Go to the most crowded exhibits first, Sea Otters and Penguins and Belugas. Then go back and do everything else. The best was the Tropical Diver, they were cleaning the tank and the scuba diver was interacting with my 2 year old son and... More

The aquarium is divided into several habitats with fun programs available for children. I loved watching the whale sharks and manta rays gliding around the huge Ocean Voyager section. Special wheelchair and stroller access is provided. Food is available but very expensive. We had a great time.

The Ocean Voyager exhibit, esp. their huge acrylic wall, is just amazing. You have to see it to believe it. If you are a fan of aquatic life, you will love this. The engineering put into this facility is a marvel, too. If you are in Atlanta, do not miss this. You will be glad you went.

What they have is nice, interesting and clean. The price is a little high and their website doesn't work when you try to purchase tickets online for a small discount. This is probably better for families as most people attending had multiple children. Not a good idea if you don't like dealing with children. Some of the areas can become... More

If you don't like crowds, do not come here on a weekend. They do their best to manage the volume of people but it's a lost cause. It is worth it to go to see the whale sharks, they are amazing! We would have enjoyed everything much more if it wasn't so crowded. The dolphin show is extremely cheesy though...I... More

The interior is beautiful, walking under the fishes through the glass walk way. The Dolphin show was fantastic and seeing different types of fish and sea creatures, it was exciting. The 3D movie was good.

Get tickets in advance. And aim for off hours, as this is a very popular attraction. One of the better of the land locked aquariums we have visted.
