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.

All of the tanks and animals were very well displayed and seemed very well taken care of. We did the Behind the Scenes tour for the Otters. THIS WAS GREAT. The staff was so friendly and personable and the... More

The aquarium was part of the CityPass. The various exhibits were great, but the dolphin show was amazing! Not only was it amazing, it's included in admission! Although we sat in the Splash Zone (the 8th row), we didn't get wet. My cousin went through the crawl-through with my daughter and got close to seeing the penguins. That was nice.

I have been to several other aquariums and compared to these others, the Georgia Aquarium was quite disappointing. The layout was not efficient and did not flow smoothly. In addition, I found the displays to be lacking. This attraction would be good for children but adults may find it lackluster.

We stayed in the garden inn as we was there to see the yankees play the braves. The aquarium was right across from the hotel so we decide to take the kids, 3 kids from from ages 3-10. Use the key kuious to purchase tickets because it is faster but only takes credit and debit cards. We went in around... More

Let's be honest, if you're Atlanta and don't like sweet, tooth-destroying drinks (and/or don't see them as a tourist attraction)there is not a lot to do as a tourist. The Aquarium is probably amongst the best things to choose from. Some excellent large tanks and interesting displays. Mixed feelings though personally about keeping larger mammals in captivity (I know the... More

This aquarium is the most beautiful aquarium I have ever been too. I loved the exhibits and my kids really enjoyed the dolphin show. It was money well spent.

I had a great time at the GA Aquarium. It was my first time and can't believe I waited so long to visit. I learned so much. The penguins and the otters were hilarious. The feeding of whale was too cool. But my favorite thing was Dolphin Tales show. I was simply amazed and very much entertained. I must definitely... More

I love aquatic life and ecosystems. It is this love that has fostered my desire to scuba dive and visit aquariums like these. GA Aquarium is... HUGE. The variety of wildlife they have is spectacular. The viewing windows are creative and captivating. The information provided is top notch. My favorite parts were the moving walkway that went beneath the main... More

First time visiting. I had heard about the large crowds. We arrived around 4pm. Not only was ticket price less expensive, but the lines were non existent. We were able to tour the entire facility (w/o shows) in 2 hrs. The attraction itself does live up to the hype.
