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.

Our family visits aquariums everywhere we go. The Atlanta Aquarium is phenomenal. We could have stood in front of the glass wall for hours just watching the fish swim, but I finally had to force myself boys away so others could enjoy. It's so peaceful. The tunnel you walk through with the glass ceiling is lovely.

My son loves all kinds of creatures and this was awesome! With it being a holiday, it was quite busy with very long lines. It took a long time to get through the glass tunnel and we had to wait several times for a while to get to the front of an exhibit. But overall we really enjoyed it. This... More

I love coming here when I go to Atlanta. They have such a giant selection to see. My favorite is the whale shark tank. I love just sitting and watching!

Every time I come to Atlanta I try my best to visit the aquarium. I've been to several all across the southern US and I can attest to the fact that the GA aquarium is the best of the best.

Although it is a little pricey, this is the only place I consistently take friends and family anytime they are in Atlanta. I have even gone for a day, brought my laptop, sat in front of the giant tank, and worked from there all day. Highly reccomend it to anyone and everyone.

We didn't get there until 3:50. They were closing at five for a private party. My wife decided she still wanted to visit. The seal and sea lion show was great. Awesome walking through with whale sharks over your head

If you can only go to one aquarium - this is it. Amazing place with well planned exhibits, lots of interactive opportunities for the kids, and truly fantastic sea creatures. We arrived about 2 p.m. which was PERFECT as the school kids were heading OUT and the evening crowd had not yet arrived.

Have not been since the aquarium first opened and it has much improved. The shows were great...dolphin show was better than sea world. Love how they focus on telling the story of the animal rescues, etc. My son loved it!
