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

My family and I enjoyed our time at the GA aquarium. There were tons of animals we have never seen in an aquarium before. The only complaint is that I felt like I was at Disney waiting to get in and to use the bathroom. There were a lot of people. Try to go on an off time, not in... More

Do not buy your tickets onsite. We arrived at the ticket window at 3:10, was told next available time to get in was 4. Closing time at 6. Was told while in line to ask for dolphin off sale tickets to get a discount for avoiding the dolphin show. Get to the window and he says no, only if there... More

Georgia Aquarium is the best place to visit in Atlanta, and one of the best Aquarium's I have been. those from Asia can draw line between Singapore Aquarium and Georgia Aquarium. this leads on its own merit, pretty vast will take minimum 2.30-3hours to look and enjoy. the walking tunnels was simply superb. Views from the glass tunnel was breathtaking,... More

Had an awesome time!! We all enjoyed the trip and it was so educational and fun at the same time. Got to see new water animals and it is the biggest aquarium I have been to in my life. The most fun part was when you get to touch the stingray, sea urchins, and starfishes. I would definitely go again.

Our 15 yr old wanted to see the whale sharks. Our 8 yr old loves fish. Both enjoyed the trip very much. There were quite a few people there for a Tuesday late morning. But it was not packed. The cafeteria was though! Seems like they underestimated what they'd need to feed the masses. My 8yr old is nonverbal autistic... More

Having been to the Miami Seaqurium, the aquarium's in Myrtle Beach and Charleston, SC, I found the Georgia Aquarium to be the most spectacular for viewing under sea life up close and personal. The Beluga Wales are almost worth the price of admission themselves and could be watched for hours if you had the time.Just a great experience for the... More

This is a fantastic aquarium with terrific exhibits. I am an aquarium fan, and this is a quality aquarium. You need to purchase tickets in advance and state a time for entry. I'm not sure why this is, since they obviously did not limit the number attending at the 2:00 entry we had. The Dolphin Tales show, the walk-through aquarium,... More

This isn't one of the most popular Atlanta attractions for nothing... there's so much to see and learn about underwater life.

Bought the City Pass for Atlanta and saved some money. The person on the phone gave two tips that really helped: 1. Buy your dolphin show ticket in advance 2. Consider a "behind the scenes" tour (extra money but worth it"!!! WE went on Saturday, it was really crowded, but have appointments in advance was a great help. NOTE: get... More

Fantastic fun for fish fanatics featuring "fenominal", "fenominal", "fantabulous" exhibits. My daughter absolutely loves the place and so do her friends...and so do I. Kids get to go free on their birthdays (but check for new rules). They have theme days too. It's the world's biggest and people come from all over the world. It is stunning. Food's a bit... More
