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.

I had only one hour for the aquarium and that certainly was not enough time. You need at least 2-3 hours to enjoy it completely. Do make it a point to check their schedule before going and you can plan your visit according to your interests. You can go scuba diving, or participate in feeding the fish, or watch the... More

I took my boyfriend to the Georgia Aquarium for his birthday and he enjoyed it! There's so much to see. Be sure to come early so time can be spent exploring every inch of the aquarium. Also, buy tickets online and save yourself time in line.

The Aquarium is a great family outing. It is beautiful and all the staff members are willing to answer your questions and educate you about the animals.

Everyone enjoyed the Georgia Aquarium. The shows were amazing. The employees were friendly and very helpful. This place is also photo friendly. We went in the middle of the week, and I would hate to get into the crowds on the weekend.

They do a great job of teaching and having things that appeal to all types of guests. They also have a ballroom that can be used for events, it was roped off but I can... More

The Georgia Aquarium is an entertaining and educational place to visit. However, it's best to try to visit when school kids are not ransacking the place. I was shocked to see how little attention the chaperones were paying to their charges. IT is at this point that aquarium staff should step in and demand discipline so that kids do not... More

A fabulous aquarium! I have been twice. Once when my kids were 8 and 11 and then again when they were 12 and 15 and they enjoyed it just as much both times. The touch tanks are great! But the very best part is the walk through giant aquarium with giant rays and WHALE SHARKS!!!

If you are interested in marine life this is a place to be . Lots of marine life, and importantly there is a huge pool of the size of the stadium and you can dive/snorkel with whale sharks in it. We tried this experience and we loved it , every single minute of it. Doesn't matter if you visit alone... More
