Owner description: 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 is a world class aquarium! Lots to do for all ages. The dolphin show was the highlight for me. I've seen it twice now and loved it.

Bought a CityPass last weekend for around $74. My friend and I got the VIP treatment since it's part of the CityPass. The AT&T Dolphin Tales show was more for children but the trainers and dolphins do some cool tricks. Many aquatic animals are present. This is a must see place.

This is a great aquarium and a wonderful way to beat the heat of Atlanta summers! They have a huge whale shark and a few beluga whales which you dont get to see everywhere. I also loved the peguin exhibit as you can tunnel through some burrows to these "peguin holes" they have which are basically little glass pop ups and the peguins walk right by you!

The place is incredible, especially hte huge tank were you can see enormous sharks. There is a small exhibit were you can pet the stingrays and small sharks, and the beluga whales are someting not to be missed.

We visited the aquarium without kids after driving 5 hours. We stayed about 3 hours before the kids were done & completely ready to go. We did not see the dolphin show, we had tickets but there was no way the kids would have sat they it after seeing the aquarium - maybe we should have done the show first? The aquarium is great, just really big.
