Description: Georgia Aquarium is the world's most magical aquarium. Situated near...
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.

Really nice how they have divided the different environments into such nice settings. Right in the heart of downtown Atlanta. A must see. Good way to spend the good part of the day. I've been to the Baltimore Aquarium...This is as nice as it is.... Plan to go back again in the middle of the week during the school year.... More

The Georgia Aquarium is located in mid-town Atlanta near several other midtown or downtown attractions. It is a very nice aquarium with lots of varied exhibits-primarily salt water tanks and sea life. I really enjoyed watching the whale sharks which is a rarity in aquariums since they are so large and it takes a very large tank to keep them... More

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this aquarium...it's the largest in the world. The tank with the whale sharks & rays takes your breath away. The dolphin show is the best I've EVER seen out of about 4 other shows I've seen. Visited here now & 4 years ago & would again anytime!

It really is among the best aquariums in the world. Nice layout, great views of great sea creatures, and nice interactive exhibits for the kids. We will go again and again when we're in town!

We had a great trip, loved all of the exhibits and especially the Whale sharks. It was a bit noisy with all the kids but that was to be expected.

I have been to the aquarium many, many times since its opening. The animals and exhibits are wonderful. My favorites are the piranha feelings, otters, penguins, and the walk through large tank with the whale sharks (I love the moving walkway when it is work). However, the facility has become more crowded as time has passed. We took friends last... More

The whale shark exhibit is worth the price of admission! Very impressive to be located in a city that has no ocean.

The Georgia aquarium is like no other. Wonderful opportunities to see many, many, different species of ocean and river life. They have whale sharks, beluga whales, dolphins, otters, clownfish, Rays... While I believe it is pricy, we lucked out and visited on Father's Day, so my husband was in free. I am bummed that they removed a section that included... More

We went out of our way to visit Atlanta just to l see the whale sharks. It's a nice aquarium but because of the hype and ticket price I was expecting much much more. I had set aside a ton of time because I thought it was going to be this great big aquarium and it's really not. The kids... More
