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.

You can see whale sharks here. Four of them! There's a massive tank where you can view them and all sorts of fish and marine life. It's a great place, too, for kids. Make sure to go there early to avoid traffic and crowds. Go right when they open, so buy a ticket online before going to the aquarium. The... More

Georgia Aquarium is pricey. You can go online and get discounted tickets. I was able to do so to go to the Aquarium. Do not rush seeing the various sea life. I have been to many aquariums throughout the US and I must say the Georgia Aquarium is one of the best I visited. I saved the best for last... More

The aquarium is nice but it could be larger. Been to the Atlantis aquarium and loved it so I expect other aquariums to exceed my expectations.

A must visit. The aquarium is quite big with many different types of fishes and sea creatures. There are African penguins. The best dolphin show ever, really awesome. Buy tickets online to say a couple dollars.

I have only been once. My husband and I were very excited to finally get to go. It seemed a little small for what I expected. It wasn't exactly bad, I just wasn't excited as I thought I would be. Of course the food prices were high. Not on our list to go again.

The Aquarium is worth a trip - just for the whale sharks!! They are awesome to see!! Missed the Belgua Whales because 1 had just given birth so the exhibit was closed (fully support maternity leave!). Cafe is a mad house but honestly I didnt think the prices were bad and there is a good selection. Dolphin show was good... More

It was pretty good but SO expensive. My husband's work offers a discount thankfully so we saved 20% but it was still over $100 for the 3 of us. A bottle of soda was over $4 which I thought was insane. The beluga exhibit was closed and the aquarium was VERY crowded.

We had to rush the first visit a few yrs back, so this trip to the Aquarium we had plenty of time to look and not be rushed. We did not attend the Dolphin Tales show which was very crowded with all the kids and parents so we took that opportunity to go back to some of the areas such... More
