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.

The open ocean exhibit is probably one of the best aquarium tanks I've seen. I really liked the dolphin/sea lion shows (great bang for your buck!), but I have mixed feelings on whether it's really ethical. I don't doubt they treat the animals well but there's something about the loud noises/flashing lights that seem not so great for them. If... More

The under water tunnel was so cool. Seeing whale sharks was incredible. My favorite part of the day was sitting and watching the whales pass in the large aquarium area. I loved the beluga whales. We went during the week and there were no crowds. It was awesome.

To me best aquarium in south. If you have to do frequent visit for guest and family member it is cheaper to get annual pass.

We visited the aquarium with our grandchildren. The wonder and beauty kept the kids entertained and engaged the entire day. Not only is the aquarium entertaining, but highly educational. The dolphin show was a highlight, but my favorite was the whales. I highly recommend going to the Georgia Aquarium.

This is a great place to go with the kiddos! We've been several times. It has grown quite a bit in attractions since it opened. The first time I was disappointed because I compared it to Chattanooga. But it is so spectacular now. I suggest a weekday so its not as crowded. There is so much to see and so... More
