Description: Georgia Aquarium is the world's most magical aquarium. Situated near...
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.

We went to see the whale sharks and were not dissapointed. The tank was great and has many places to see from different angles. The beluga whales were an awesome exhibit also. In comparson with other aquariums, there weren't as many small exhibits but several very large ones. We were there approx. 4 hours and felt like we got to... More

I was floored with how beautiful and well designed this aquarium was! Aside from the amazing huge SIX MILLION gallon tank holding several Whale Sharks, there was also just hundreds upon hundreds of great exhibits including interactive ones where you can literally crawl inside the enclosure (safely in your own little bubbles) for terrific photo ops.

Everyone told us to go and they were right! We bought tickets online for early admission (8:00 a.m.) and it was great. No lines, docents were available at all exhibits and we were able to see everything at a great pace. By 10:00 it was crazy busy and we were in line for Dolphin Tales. While not at all what... More

Well- designed, spacious, educational. I really like the Ocean Voyager exhibit. Almost as good as scuba diving.

Don't waste your time and money. Too expensive, too crowded, too long lines for one thing, then it's closing time. Wait in line 45 minutes for one thing, then takes another 30 to seat everyone and get ready. One show/exhibit took up 2.5 hours mostly wait time and they warn about closing at 5pm. It's like being herded cattle everywhere... More

SDHAtlanta, Public Relations Manager at Georgia Aquarium, responded to this review

Hello. Thanks for your review. You didn't mention a single thing you saw in our aquarium that moved or inspired you, which is quite unfortunate and very different from most of our reviewers. We work hard to ensure all guests have a great experience, and work harder during busier "out of school" periods like Spring Break. We are very sorry... More

We loved getting there at 9 because there was no wait to get in. Our plan was to tour the aquarium for 2 hours, then get in line for the dolphin show at 11:30 and then leave. We could not see the 3d movie because the first showing for the public was not until 11. The new interactive part did... More
