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.

We purchased the imagination nights discount tickets. You can arrive after 4:00. You still have plenty of time to see everything. Go to the dolphins first because they will close early (at 5:00). After that you can get through the entire aquarium before it closes....More

Love that you have twilight tickets, hate that you had a big sign saying last dolphin show is at 5 but nothing anywhere saying last sealion show is at 6. So when we walked by it at 6:15 we were very disappointed to learn we...More

OK, it costs a little more than I was expecting (about $70 for two), but it was so worth it!!! We spent about 4 hours there. Saw dolphin and sea lion shows, and spent time in all the galleries. Favourites were the fantastic tropical coral...More

Was there on a Monday, thought it would be quiet, they still drew a crowd with school & vacationer bus trips. Amazed at the size of the area that held 2 whale sharks. Really good dolphin show too.

Even if you're a "grown up" this place will never cease to amaze you! The layout is easy to follow and flow through, it never feels "too crowded" and the sea lion and dolphin shows are the best!

Definitely a must-see when visiting Atlanta. The admission price is somewhat expensive, but you can easily spend several hours touring the various exhibits. The most impressive feature is the main tank with the whale sharks. Hard to describe how awe inspiring it is, but it...More

Very nice aquarium! We loved the sea lion and dolphin shows. The 4-D theater was a fun experience as well. Fun for all ages. The lines do get long going in and out of the shows and the food is pricey but it’s worth the...More

I just read some people saying you don't actually swim with them. I did it on Monday. You absolutely can swim with them or, if dive certified, dive in the tank. I did the dive. Your admission doesn't cover this. It is a... More
