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 aquarium is pretty cool. Once you go once...there's no reason to go again. It is very similar to other aquariums across the US. Great experience for kids.

The line for those of us who wanted to avoid the lines was as long as the eye could see. Why? Only one person doing security. They clearly don't know how to handle a crowd. The Aquarium was good, very crowded, very, very expensive. We can't afford to ever do it again.

An incredible experience! So much to do for kids. I went with my husband, we had a great time! The exhibits were fantastic. We were jealous of the divers and swimmers. We will be back to experience swimming with the sharks. Worth every penny! Loved it!

Truly a gorgeous aquarium but between the school trips and Cheersport Nationals it was mobbed and not very enjoyable. Wall to wall children - difficult to get in front of tanks and into shows.

This is an amazing aquarium, fun for everyone in the family. A lot of money and thought was put into this place. Enough to keep you busy for quite a few hours if you want. Rivals coastal aquariums like Monterey.

This is our third time visiting the aquarium in two years, and it keeps getting better and better! The sea otters, penguins, and the baluga whales are great attractions! The sea lion show us short and amazing but don't bother with the pre-show--it's super dumb, and has nothing to do with anything. The dolphin show is by far the best;... More

I could stand and watch the belugas all day! But then I would miss the wonderful sea lions and dolphins!

This place is wonderful. Be prepared to walk and the crowds. Lines are long as well. Go EARLY! Don't take lighters. Food is expensive!
