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 aquarium is so worth the visit. Nestled right in downtown, it is within walking distance of many other attractions so you can make a day of touring.

Huge displays, with whale sharks as the star attraction. Get discounted early bird tickets, and plan on spending a small fortune on any food or drink

You can literally spend all day there. Also, a great location for other venues. Go before 11:00 am and it is $30.00 per person across the board.

Since it's summer, any day of the week would be nice. During the weekend (Saturday) it's a little crowded in my opinion.

Hi, We went on a Wednesday morning . The entry queue was a little long but as the aquarium is quite big the visitors soon disappear into it . Sorry can't help any more as it was my first visit. Have a great time!

If you want to stay reasonably close - look for Midtown as location; some places in downtown maybe walking distance but Midtown is a nicer area. Midtown is north of North Avenue.
