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.

Great for the whole family. They even have two whale sharks! This is the biggest aquarium in the whole world. It is also close by to downtown Atlanta for a great dinner experience and a Braves game if you like baseball.

It was really too crowded to thoroughly enjoy seeing everything. There were a number of large strollers crowding the passageways, which made it even more difficult to navigate through the exhibits. What we did get a good look at, we enjoyed. The dolphin show was wonderful.

Military discount available. Extra charge for live dolphin show. Great, cool place to spend a few hours out of the hot sun, see ocean life and touch live creatures. There is, of course, the gift shop at the exit.

One of the best Aquariums I have been to. I love the fact that there are different "worlds" that focus of different animals and areas of the world. There is so much to do and it isn't just a place to see fishes. Great half a day activity. They also offer dolphin show which was pretty amazing (sit in the... More

Love going to any aquarium, but the Georgia Aquarium, being the largest in the US with every changing exhibits is a blast !!! For younger kids, the touching tanks and talks are captivating !! The Beluga whales and the 360 walk through are 2 of the best exhibits. The closest you can get to scuba diving without getting wet !!... More

This aquarium has been on my bucket list! It's incredible. I went alone bc I arrived in Georgia before everyone else and we had other plans the rest of the weekend. It was crowded but if you're not on a time crunch just take your time and enjoy it. I loved the ocean voyager where you can see the giant... More

While we have visited the GA aquarium many times over the years when out of towers visited, we only became members this past year. Boy, we wish we had done it sooner. As we found it enjoyable to bring the kids to the aquarium even if just for two hours on a Sunday, and how awesome not having to stand... More
