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.

Absolutely wonderful..... amazing exhibits well presented. Highly recommend the Behind the Scenes tour as well - fascinating. We took lots of pictures - but they don't do it justice... Worth a visit - worth the price.

I loved it! Great opportunity for kids and adults of all ages. We went in the morning and were able to get through all of the exhibits with ease. Very crowded near the end of the day, but we were able to see the sea lion show and the dolphin experience. The sea lions were charming and the beluga whales... More

The Georgia Aquarium is smack dab in the center of Atlanta. We walked from Philip's Arena through Centennial Park to the aquarium in less than 10 min. TIP- DO NOT GO on an event day. Between the circus crowds & cheer competition, everyone seemed to stop by the aquarium after their event. PARKING TIP-You can park in Centennial Deck for... More

This wonderful city park is located in downtown Atlanta, close to major attractions such as the world's largest aquarium (Georgia Aquarium), World of Coca-Cola, CNN Center, Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, Children's Museum of Atlanta, Center for Civil and Human Rights, Sky View, etc. From here you can take a tram that gives you a walk through the...

Wish we could have stayed longer to see all the shows. The Aquarium is almost a full day of activities. It's fun for adults and kids.

Great day with the whole family. The albino alligators were amazing as were the Beluga Whales. The shows were crowded and we had to go half hour early, missing that time looking at non-show animals, to even get in. Still, would do it again.

Really enjoyed the multiple shows, and the fantastic facility. The different "adventures" set up by location and water/weather type take you to their world as you walk through, also lots of little alcoves and viewing spots just for kids. A very popular place for families and it gets very crowded on a Saturday afternoon so plan accordingly.
