I've been to the GA aquarium, so I feel like nothing could ever compare. My kids enjoyed it. There were plenty of places for then to explore in a hands-on manner. Their favorite part was walking in the domed area and watching the sea otters, large fish, turtles etc in the large open tanks. I feel like it was fun for them, but upon exiting, my husband and I were both kind of bummed we spent so much on tickets. Plus, it was insanely humid and sticky inside.
