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 aquarium is awesome. This is the only time you will be able to get to see these marine animals up close. I thought I would never be able to see an octopus or Beluga Whale.

Great aquarium. There are also many shows featuring various animals. Nice to take a break to sit from a lot of walking around. Decent food options. Easier to eat there than to try and leave. Part of our family did the whale shark immersion experience and it was great! Expensive, but worth it. Catherine was our guide for those of... More

I went here with my husband and my two young nieces. Fortunately, one of the nieces was below 3 years old, so we did not have to pay for her ticket. It is quite pricey to go to these attractions now - which makes me sad because I think of all the people who may want to come, but cannot... More

I went to the aquarium while Georgia schools were still out for Christmas, and it was crazy crowded. I imagine that one of the top aquariums in the world is actually worth $40, however it was so crowded you could hardly walk. I wasn't able to read any of the info on the animals, and couldn't even see in some... More

It is a nice aquarium. The part where you can walk under the water is really cool. So is the 4d cinema. But every time I visit a zoo or something like this I can't stop thinking the space is just too small for the animals.

I just moved to Atlanta and my daughter and I are catching the sites. She is almost 18 and really enjoyed it. Really well done and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The way they segment never made anything too crowded and we got full access to each area and exhibit. Definitely on the list for when my grandkids visit... More
