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.

A great experience. On another trip my husband accompanied both grandsons for the Sea Otter Experience! Another great experience. The... More

This is a wonderful place to visit. I am sure grown ups and kids will have fun checking out all the different schools of fish and their habitat. Entrance is a bit high, so check online for some coupons and make sure to print them out before going there.

Had a great time with our 6 and 8 year old at the Aquarium. We got there around 1pm and the parking garage was full. Had to park in a garage about 1/2 mile from the Aquarium. Went on a Saturday in the summer and it was packed tight. We did the dolphin show and my 8yr got to be... More

The aquarium was a great experience. My girlfriend and I came to Atlanta with this as our main attraction and decided to get a city pass, highly recommend this path, skip the lines and get a ton of perks. The animals were unique and energetic. The only downfall to this trip was the price of food. Make sure you eat... More

Coming from California, we are pretty spoiled by the awesome Monterey Bay Aquarium. Even though we went on a very crowded day, we all loved the Georgia Aquarium! The exhibits are beautiful, and there is a tremendous amount of attention given to conservation. The whale sharks, manta rays, belugas, etc were just mind blowing. We loved all the California exhibits... More

The aquarium is a big circle and gets crowded. Would be nicer if better layout. There are stress cracks in the glass, the restrooms were dirty, and the food was overpriced and not good. If the price was less it would be ok, but for now too much for what they give.

We walked through the aquarium today and it is REALLY nice but only took us about 2 hours. If we'd had children with us, it may have taken longer. The whale sharks and their enclosure are phenomenal! Pricy trip but a cool experience.

The place is amazing: It contains several water environments that represents the major water ecosystems in the planet. Take your time, it does have a cafeteria with enough variety for everyone.
