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.

The large basin with whale sharks, rays and the like was really impressive. But the informative/educational value of the aquarium was low. I have seen much better aquaria in that respect. What I found totlly disgusting was the dolphin show. A musical singer modeating the show and a ridiculous story about dolphins killing see monsters. Very Amarican! While most aquaria... More

Aquarium was worth it, gets crowded so try and go early in the day. Hit the ocean section first and spend some time in the tunnel on the moving walkway

Too commercial, loud, overpriced, under scienced, flashing light, loud cheesy music. Like a carnival with fish. Very crowded, mall atmosphere with shops, restaurants, tinny Christmas music. Okay exhibits - it is a zoo, they are captive - but every display, every theme room had a commercial sponsor plus you pay a zillion dollars to get in. Very few people to... More

Wonderful--especially the Ocean Voyager exhibit. Only place in the U.S. you can see manta rays and whale sharks. Can't be described, you must experience it!

Beautiful aquarium with an underwater walkway where enormous whale sharks, stingrays, and other sea life swim all around you. The touching station with starfish and anemones is always a hit with kids.

Very large aquarium with some really good features, the whale sharks were so unexpected and the best thing there. The staff were friendly and explained a lot - saw the feeding of the penguins and also the whale sharks, unfortunately our visit did coincide with a dolphin show but we went up and saw one messing about with a ball...

I thought the aquarium was nice, but people hyped it up so much--and I just didn't think it was that great. The dolphin show was okay. I enjoyed seeing the dolphins, although the show was a bit elementary. The younger kids in the audience really seemed to enjoy it a lot.

Visited this aquarium thinking that it would be a bit like every other. How wrong could I have been. Not only is it the largest in America, it is well set out, informative and entertaining. We were treated to seeing the otters being fed, Santa Claus swimming withe the fishes and to top it all a fantastic dolphin show.

Visited the Georgia Aquarium day after Thanksgiving 2015. We had a VIP tour scheduled for 1:00 pm. Tickets were at will call and the wait was minimal. Once inside the aquarium, it was packed and making our way to the Backstage Tours desk was quite the adventure. Our tour guide was Gary and he gave us a quick overview of... More
