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

This was a great indoor activity for 4 hours. I enjoyed the ocean area the best and then the tropical area. We got to see the sea horses be feed. We did eat at the café, the food was good. We enjoyed the otters also. The ATT Dolphin Tale show was fun to watch. The dolphins were amazing.

I got to go here for a Presidential Reception, so we had the whole place to ourselves (although about 1000 people). I was expecting to see the entire aquarium, but several exhibits were closed. I really enjoyed the large tank that had the whale sharks. Those were amazing. I would have liked to have seen more of the dolphins. This... More

One quick tip prior to my thoughts on the Aquarium. Be sure to purchase your tickets online in advance so that you save a few dollars on entry. The savings could add up quick if you are bringing a full family to the aquarium to visit. I went to the Aquarium this past Monday morning for the first time. Parking... More

We stopped by the Aquarium with our granddaughters while traveling north. Watching our gran daughter's expressions as we walked through a clear tube with fish swimming over, getting up close to penguins, and then spilling into a huge viewing room with whale sharks swimming by you with only plexiglass between you and them. The dolphin show was very nice, but... More

Fabulous place and well worth the price. Just to see the exhibit with 4 whale sharks as well as manta rays, grouper, etc. should be worth the price but they have so much more to see! In addition to the relatively common exhibits of dolphins, tropical coral reef and beluga whales, they have an incredible exhibit on Sea Monsters Revealed.... More

We managed to collect some city guide pamphlets and took the blue line to downtown and headed to Georgia Aquarium, Since we are travelling on a business i was... More

The price is very steep if you don't get a discount from somewhere. The show is entertaining but the dolphins have been simplified to basically just jump, I am assuming because anything else would be degrading to animal right activists. The tanks are unreal, breaking up by mammals, exhibits and nature of fish. To see some of them upclose was... More

We stopped in on a Saturday morning the day before a Falcons game and the place was packed! Took 10 minutes just to pay for our tickets. It was basically shoulder to shoulder all the way through the whole visit. There were some cool scenes throughout but unfortunately it was way too packed to even get any decent pictures. My... More

The Dolphin Tales show was a great production with highly trained dolphins and marine personnel. The exhibit show the Whale Sharks and Beluga Whales was absolutely breathtaking. The pools are about 30 feet deep and full of different animal species. There were also otters and penguins of course.
