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 was fun and had great displays. We watched the dolphin show and heard a little girl (2-3 year old) say that it was scary. Could see how it may seem that way to a little one but it was quite entertaining. We have been to the Montery aquarium but this was very similar. I would totally recommend... More

I was treated to a trip to the Georgia Aquarium from my Aunt. I had been one other time but was very rushed and did not enjoy it so I was excited to go again with no time restrictions. Upon entering the Aquarium I found that little had changed from before as far as looks were concerned. I made my... More

Visited with a large group for a family reunion. This is the second time we visited the aquarium. It was busy as usual, but we were able to manage the crowds with a little patience and maneuvering. The group expected to view the dolphin show at 11 am, but realized the adults were supposed to go to customer service desk... More

I make it a plan to go to an aquarium where ever I travel and this is the best I have been to. Of note is that it is the world's largest aquarium. It has a great layout and is a lot of fun. Pricey but worth it. No outside drinks or food allowed and no lighters, matches or knives.... More

We've traveled the world and seen lots of aquariums, but this so far is the best. You can't miss the whale sharks.

Both times I've been, the lines were long, and we had to get entry for a later time (both times about a 1.5 hour wait). It was packed both times. The displays were cool, but about the same as most aquariums. It is very clean, and fun to do on a rainy day, but there are better things to do... More

I have been to a lot aquariums in through in the past years but this one was by far the best. They had all kinds of sea life and some I never knew existed. It took us about 2-3 hours to see everything. We did watch the Dolphin Tale show and it is geared more towards kids. We went on... More

The aquarium was great. We were singled out by an employee to accompany him to a behind the scenes feeding of the whale sharks in the main Aquarium. We spent an hour at the feeding. My 10 year old daughter was thrilled. The rest of the visit was exceptional as well. This is a must see.
