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.

Took family to Atlanta to visit the Georgia Aquarium and a few other downtown attractions. The aquarium was an awesome experience. The kids loved it. Also visited a few other areas. We love Atlanta.

A visit to The GEORGIA AQUARIUM was my sons biggest dream. Hubby had business in the ATL so we packed up and tagged along! I'm not sure what I expected but this place blew me away!! The whale sharks were beautiful to watch, and we got to see them at feeding also. The Beluga whales were cool, had never seen... More

The behind the scenes pass is worth it. Not expensive, either. We have been to Aquariums around the world and this was the best by far. Def worth it.

My husband, son and I visited the Georgia Aquarium for the first time last May. It was crowded, but the flow of the layout permits one to get good views of just about everything. There are few shows that are well worth the time we spent watching them, especially the one with the seals and sea cows. It had just... More

My experience was a very good time, this is a BIG Aquarium with tons of exhibits. Priced very fairly for what you get to experience and see. This is one of the few aquariums that have wait times for certain shows and exhibits but they are very worth the time. This is a very clean and organized facility which helps... More

A little bit chaotic...but worth while. I strongly recommend planning out a visit here in advance, otherwise you could miss something good. We enjoyed the experience for the most part but it would have been better if we had a clear walking tour planned out.

We had a good few hours here. They have done a nice job with the aquarium. Show was fun for the kids. Exhibits had some interaction which was great. Found it quite expensive expensive though for the time you spend there. Felt like going to a theme park in terms of cost.

This is an attraction which you can easily spend half a day in. Full price is fairly expensive but you can save money by booking online especially the after 4pm price that we paid. We started our tour with a very entertaining sea lion, then dolphin show before going on to see a fantastic collection of manta and sting rays,... More
