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.

Being from Chicago and frequenting the Shedd Aquarium multiple times in just the past year alone, I was not expecting to be so impressed by this one. I was so pleasantly surprised! The underwater walkway was the by far the coolest thing. I could have ridden that many times and seen something different each time. It's a unique aquarium in... More

Lovely place for a group visit. Kids loved it. Arrive there on time to be able to see the 3D show and Dolphin show. The food served at the food court is gr8 but a bit pricey though. A must visit if you're in Atlanta.

Been to a lot of aquariums over the years with the kids - this was one of the best. Huge tanks (several whale sharks in one) and wide variety of zones. Also have their own huge in-house live dolphin show and tanks. Very impressive. Need 2-3 hours to do fully. At over $45 per adult - was also really expensive.

The GA Aquarium is well worth the price of admission, especially if you get the Atlanta City Pass!! You need to get your ticket for the Dolphin Show when you first go in. It doesn't cost any extra but you do need a ticket to reserve your space. Give yourself extra time to just sit and enjoy the large views.... More

Considering this is meant to be the worlds largest I felt slightly let down and ripped off! My children enjoyed it though and seeing their faces lit up made the attraction for me. Wouldn't overly recommend it to others due to price (everything OTT food/fee/gifts) unless desperate for a family attraction on a wet day.

But you should know that we place a great deal of importance on the wonder and awe you described in your children's eyes. It's our... More

Attended a redemption out on for a conference group. We spent a long time speaking with a volunteer who was knowledgeable and eager to share about the animals. She really enriched our experience . We were disappointed that the beluga didn't give birth while we were there! The reception was catered - the very best buffet I've ever enjoyed!

We had a great time here. The crowd wasn't too bad. We got tickets online and took just a few mins to get through security. Only issue was at the Dolphin Show. The young lady who was ushering the right side of the theater was extremely rude. We had an open seat between my husband and me and needed to... More

This is by far the best aquarium and attraction in the ATL area. From the quality of the exhibits to the overall experience it's a must visit experience when in Atlanta

The aquarium to me isn't worth the price. For a family of 4 it's going to cost you upwards of $150 bucks just to get into the door. I wouldn't suggest going with smaller children because they probably will not get out of it what a kid around 5 would. Also, be prepared to pay for parking. This is an... More

Thanks for your review. From your estimation of the cost of your tickets for a family of four, it seems you walked up to purchase your tickets when you arrived. We offer discounted tickets via our website and call center, up to 20% off the walk up price depending on the time of day you visit. Also, during spring break... More
