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

I have been to a lot aquariums in through in the past years but this one was by far the best. They had all kinds of sea life and some I never knew existed. It took us about 2-3 hours to see everything. We did watch the Dolphin Tale show and it is geared more towards kids. We went on... More

The aquarium was great. We were singled out by an employee to accompany him to a behind the scenes feeding of the whale sharks in the main Aquarium. We spent an hour at the feeding. My 10 year old daughter was thrilled. The rest of the visit was exceptional as well. This is a must see.

I am from Georgia and used to volunteer at the aquarium when it first opened and loved volunteering. There has definitely been some great additions and changes since opening. The whale sharks, which are really cool, and big fish tanks are beautiful and a joy to see! I love seeing the colorful fish and the varieties shown in the tanks... More

So expensive and not as big as they make it out to be. You have to pay extra for the shows so with the general admission price of $36 each you are done in 30 minutes.

The Georgia Aquarium is very impressive with some excellent displays, all laid out in a very engaging manner. The shows are excellent and it is well worth the day out. Book online for your tickets in advance; this will save you having to line up and about $4 per person. Also arrive early as the crowds really start packing the... More

Our granddaughter loved the displays which allowed touching the "creatures" . Also, the dolphin show was fun. The aquarium was not packed early in the morning, so we had time to explore without a crowd. We spent a full four hours enjoying the activities.

The only reason this didn't get 5 stars from me is because of the price and I felt it was more aimed towards children. All of the shows they offer are aimed towards children. That sort of bothered me since we were all adults. We had to sit through a singing 30 minute show to see the dolphins. It was... More

I took my dad to the Georgia Aquarium for his 85th birthday. He kicked all the way there, said he had seen enough aquariums in his lifetime. Entering the aquarium, the wall of swimming Jack fish let Dad know this wasn't just another little aquarium! Dad was delighted all day and was suitable impressed and stunned by the eye-popping HUGE... More
