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.

Having not been since shortly after the initial opening, we were not sure this visit would be quite as exciting. We were, however, surprised and pleased at the changes in shows and exhibits. This is truly one of the best, and truly educationally engaging, aquariums we've visited.

OMG! That is the most beautiful and biggest aquarium! I love fish so I was having just as much fun as the grandkids. We spent a lot of time in the big room. Sitting and talking and enjoying the different fish. Their were a couple of flounders that was enjoying putting on a show for people.

Definitely, it is the best aquarium in the U.S The shows are awesome and you will spend a really good time there. You can go with your childs and they will enjoy it also. The sad part is if you start thinking that they have all those animals in captivity.

We always visit aquariums when we go on trips with my family since a lot of them are fans of animals. We went to this one particularly because of the Whale Shark. It did not disappoint. This aquarium was very nice and had a good variety of animals. I did find that the Monterey aquarium was a bit better because... More

Such a great aquarium. Love spending time just sitting and watching the different displays. The penguin exhibit is fantastic and we loved the beluga whales. Best advice is to get there before it opens so you can enter right at opening. After a few hours it is so crowded it is hard to see everything.

This aquarium is rated as the #1 Aquarium in the country. I have been to several aquariums, and I can see why it is rated so highly. The aquarium is broken up into sort of hallways. At the end of each hallway there is a different show, and they have the shows frequently. This sets this aquarium apart from the... More

The aquarium is not so big, but it's awesome! I was there during a night event, with a big group. We didn't get access to the entre fscility, but we had a great time! Worth a visit!
