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.

Maybe the reviews on here and by word of mouth led me to have really high expectations, but I'm sad to say I was a little disappointed. I just felt like there should have been more exhibits, Even though I can't think of an animal in particular that they missed. Don't get me wrong I think this is a great... More

This is a great aquarium and very organized too. There are various exhibit halls that contain different animals. You can easily cover the entire building in a few hours. I highly recommend spending some "gazing time" in the sitting area where the whale sharks are. There's also a feature where the divers go inside the tank and you have an... More

I was a little disappointed with the size of this aquarium. I thought that it would be a little bigger but I am comparing it to the Baltimore Aquarium which is huge! I loved the architecture though . It was really exciting to be surrounded by water and to look up inside the aquariums and to visibly see the fish... More

Having not been since shortly after the initial opening, we were not sure this visit would be quite as exciting. We were, however, surprised and pleased at the changes in shows and exhibits. This is truly one of the best, and truly educationally engaging, aquariums we've visited.

OMG! That is the most beautiful and biggest aquarium! I love fish so I was having just as much fun as the grandkids. We spent a lot of time in the big room. Sitting and talking and enjoying the different fish. Their were a couple of flounders that was enjoying putting on a show for people.

Definitely, it is the best aquarium in the U.S The shows are awesome and you will spend a really good time there. You can go with your childs and they will enjoy it also. The sad part is if you start thinking that they have all those animals in captivity.

From the otters to the dolphins, and mix in the beluga whales and whale sharks a great place to while away a couple of hours in Atlanta.

We always visit aquariums when we go on trips with my family since a lot of them are fans of animals. We went to this one particularly because of the Whale Shark. It did not disappoint. This aquarium was very nice and had a good variety of animals. I did find that the Monterey aquarium was a bit better because... More

Such a great aquarium. Love spending time just sitting and watching the different displays. The penguin exhibit is fantastic and we loved the beluga whales. Best advice is to get there before it opens so you can enter right at opening. After a few hours it is so crowded it is hard to see everything.

This aquarium is rated as the #1 Aquarium in the country. I have been to several aquariums, and I can see why it is rated so highly. The aquarium is broken up into sort of hallways. At the end of each hallway there is a different show, and they have the shows frequently. This sets this aquarium apart from the... More
