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 friend and I were at a conference this past April. We decided to ditch and take a trip to the aquarium. Boy are we glad we did! They have SO many fish here. My favorite part was probably the gigantic tank they have filled with several kinds of sharks and sting rays. I loved the variety they had and... More

Can be crowded around holidays, pretty expensive, but a great aquarium, the largest. I have not seen the shows. Just watching the giant tanks is a thrill. Good for multiple generations together.

I've been to aquariums in Baltimore, Seattle, Monterey, Chattanooga, Cinci and Sydney Australia and the Georgia Aquarium is the best. Suggest you leave the largest tank (with the whale sharks) for last as a climax to your visit. Don't miss the dolphin show. The songs are pretty cheesy, but the dolphins are wonderful. Sit in the front few rows if... More

While it is ok to see the animals in our Aquarium from the front it is well worth the money to take a behind the scenes tour to see the animals from the top as well as the side views. I'm very partial to the big fish "Whale Shark" exhibit. This is a must see part of the exhibit.

I really enjoyed this aquarium. The way it was divided into different sections was very unique and it made the trip fun. We spent most of the day here, and they had a big selection of animals. I also took advantage of the souvenir cup with refills!

No trip to Atlanta is complete without a trip to the aquarium. When we have friends or family visiting us in Atlanta we always take them to the aquarium. The facility is state of the art and can be enjoyed by all ages. It is very educational for children and the look of wonder on their faces when they are... More

The Atlanta Aquarium is amazing. It is a fantastic attraction for the whole family. Plan to do a lot of walking. The touch tanks are fun for the kids and the exhibits are great for all ages. You will learn about both fresh and salt water creatures. This one is a must go.

You shouldn't miss the aquarium if you visit Atlanta. It is an amazing place to bring your family and witness the amazing variety and beauty that lives in the water all around us. My top mommy tips: 1. Get there when it opens and try to avoid Sat/Sun. You will not have to deal with the crowds, and it is... More
