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.

This was my second visit to the aquarium and I plan on visiting a few more times over the years. The selection of animals is vast and the set up is good. I missed the dolphin show on my first visit (which is included in the entrance fee) so I'm glad I got to see it this time. Plan your... More

Buy your tickets ahead of time! You will save yourself a lot of waiting in line. This is a wonderful experience. The atrium provides a common entrance to 6 different areas, all with their own fascination. In my opinion, the Ocean Voyager area make the whole price of admission worthwhile. No spoilers here. Go and be amazed!

Amazing aquarium ! Staff all knowledgable friendly and genuinely seem to love teaching and making the whole day fun interactive and memorable!. Whale sharks (4) were impressive and whatever your opinions on them in captivity - the aquariums commitment to rescue rehabilitation protection and preservation is admirable. Well worth a visit. We got the 4pm ticket that saved us $10/12... More

The Georgia Aquarium is amazimg. I traveled with my Girl Scouts and another troop. Amazing place and one of my girls caught the most amazing photos. Since it is right across from the World of Coca Cola, you got to go to both.

It takes a lot to impress me, with regard to aquariums. This one DID. I'm from the west coast, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium is the level-set for my expectations. While this aquarium may not have everything they have in Monterey, it's an extensive collection, and it's well put together. Clean, well-organized, and built for a great experience, our experience...

Its a excellent well maintained place. Booked online and got 20% off for early birds meaning you have a time limit to reach by 10:30. Took 10:00 AM slot for Sunday. Day started with Sea Lions Presentation followed by ATnT Dolphin show and the vast varieties of Marine habitats the place has to offer.
