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.

Have not been since the aquarium first opened and it has much improved. The shows were great...dolphin show was better than sea world. Love how they focus on telling the story of the animal rescues, etc. My son loved it!

One of the best aquariums I've been too. Great place for kids as well and a good location downtown. Can get crowded.

My wife and I had the Georgia Aquarium on our list but the price seemed a little high. After we parked in the adjacent ramp, we realized Coke was in the same area. My wife checked on tickets for the aquarium and found out they were cheaper after 4pm. We decided to go to Coke since it was only 2pm.... More

We were set to go to the Aquarium, I found the Atlanta Aquarium is not visitor friendly at all. It is less costly to order tickets for admission and parking online, but a printer is needed to print the tickets. Staying at a hotel, we were able to ask the people at the front desk if they would print it.... More

My first review I accidentally hit one star and for some reason TripAdvisor will not let you go back and edit so I am doing a second review to give it the five stars that I believe it deserves.

My team and I took our 1st grade students on a field trip. The rules were very unclear about lunch procedures. The staff at the aquarium would not permit us to bring in lunches from the school. Their whole idea is to make money! They would only seat those who were buying food from their establishment. They wanted us to... More

This is a very large aquarium in a good location. The cost is around $40 per adult. There are discounts available through City Pass and pre-purchasing. We really didn't plan to go, but weather prevented us from doing other things so we came here. The volunteers who work here are very informative. Unfortunately the workers are not photo friendly and... More

Georgia Aquarium is a gorgeous facility with some nice attractions for all ages. As a family, we try to visit every year or so and it's always interesting to see what they've added to the list of attractions. Definitely a nice way to spend the day.

This is a very big aquarium which features the usual exhibits ranging from penguins,otters,fish and sharks and many more. Allow at least 2 hours for a complete visit and go through the tunnel to experience the multitude of coloured fish,sharks,stingrays and whales.

In town for SEC Championship game and had 4 hours to kill before heading over to stadium. Staying at Omni CNN Center no more than a 15 minute walk to Aquarium. Prices seemed a little high at $45 each but in we went. Got there at 1045 walked right in to the live seal show- was very entertaining. Left that... More
