Owner description: 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.

Nice experience. The whale sharks are a must see.
They can get better with the shows. They ask to start the lines 45 minutes for the shows, when they can do as other major aquariums do: provide the time slots in advance to the visitors. This way you don’t have to waste time waiting until the show starts. There are at least 3 shows, so you can waste up to 3 hours just waiting.
My 2 cents: learn from others.

There needed to be more information given in one place. I had to refer to separate documents to find info about shows, extra events and times for everything.

Went here after a business trip and had a great time. I love going to see aquariums and this was a good one. Much better than the one in my home town so I really enjoyed it.

We sat for what seemed like hours looking at the wall to ceiling tank looking for certain things. So relaxing and I just felt refreshed afterwards.

You won't be disappointed at this aquarium!

We visited the Georgia Aquarium during spring break and it was oppressively crowded. The dolhin show was a nice reprise, though the lead up to the show was longer and more involved than the show itself. The dfferent areas in the aquarium have fun stuff, but it was difficult to get near the tanks. Penguins, belugas and sea dragons were favorites.
