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.

I would of given this a 5 if they would of allowed my 13 year old granddaughter to do what she was begging to do swim with the whale sharks. You need to have a parent until age 18 and 500.00 was too much for me to shell out to have her dream come true, wish it was a more... More

We go in the evening when they stay open late (9:00 pm) and we can run around and look at all the exhibits we want. We especially enjoy the penguin crawl tubes and the Ocean Voyager tank. Always a fun time.

Me and my family went on a Sunday morning thinking it would not be to packed but we were WRONG!! However it wasn't to packed to enjoy the shows and aquarium itself until about 1-2:00pm when traffic became to heavy and we decided to leave. But by that time we had already seen the whole aquarium but missed a few... More

Geared a bit too much to kids. Could tone it down quite a bit and still have a unique and interesting attraction. Compares to New Orleans' aquarium except of course with whale sharks and otters.

Need about 2-3 hours to get through the whole aquarium. We are from Florida so it seemed small compared to others we have been to. We had a 15 and a 8 year old and it held both of their attention spans for 3 hours. Loved the Whale Shark! Very clean and seemed as through the trainers really enjoy what... More

I was in town for a week for training and was glad I found out that the aquarium had late hours on Wednesday (9pm)! Arrived around 6pm (just in time to see the last dolphin show) and the place was nearly empty! It was perfect! My friend and I were able to stroll leisurely through each exhibit, take our time...

We went on a Saturday morning at 9:00 and there weren't many people there at all. A couple of hours later it was starting to get more crowded so we were happy we had a good bit of time where we didn't have difficulty navigating the people. We saw the Sea Lion show and the Dolphin show. The Sea Lion... More

In the heart of the city & within walking distance of many other attractions. Easily walkable from downtown hotels & Marta at Congress centre. Informative programs & lots to see and do. Food court was under renovation & had limited menu and seating.

Impressive place, the displays are good, and the main tank impressive. If you have been to other aquariums then this is an extension of others. The weekends are turmoil. Parents do not control their children, food prices high and quality bad.

While I prefer the Tennessee Aquarium, the Atlanta Aquarium has much to offer. Bundle it with other local attractions and you have a day!
