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.

This really is the best of the nation. I thought it was an exaggeration but just go see for yourself. I don't know what to say to convince you to go other than.... GO!! (Sea Lion show was fantastic and there's nothing more humbling than watching Whale Sharks eat.)

Went to the penguin encounter $59++ per person. I was a lucky one among 6 in the penguin group since the penguin kept paying attention to me so that was nice. Other than that $59+ we only got to touch the penguin twice on the back. Informative- yes but did expect a little more. Overall good experience tho. Aquarium dolphin... More

Best Aquarium I have ever been to! Animals seemed happy and well taken care of, shows were fun and staff was friendly. The Whale Sharks were my favorite with the dolphin show being a close second. I like how the place is separated by different sections. Will be back!

Everything you could want in an aquarium. Amazing scenes. Gets crowded but nothing you can't work around. The food in the cafe is expensive. I did really like the modern look to everything.

Outstanding aquarium! The main tank is over a football field long and houses many species, including 4 giant whale sharks! It's shaped like a star, with all exhibits featuring an out and back path, returning to the atrium where you select your next experience. The beluga whales were an experience! Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed!

I have visited this aquarium 3 times since our move to Atlanta in June. We have visited with teenagers, children and adults and it was a blast every time. You can save money by choosing different options such as entering at 4pm. The dolphin show is included and awesome. I love how relaxing the beluga exhibit is! There are hands... More

I love seeing all the different animals in this aquarium. I have taken my God-son and nephew several times in the past, and now my own daughter and all of them have loved it at every age I have taken them (from age 2 to 10). The exhibits are clean, fun, and interactive. The animals all appear to be very... More

Very highly rated aquarium in downtown Atlanta. We arrived as they were opening, which was a good idea as it got more crowded throughout the day. An awesome fieldtrip for all the students we saw! We really loved the beluga whales- there are only a handful of aquariums in the US that have them. The whale shark exhibit was unbelievable,... More

The aquarium is huge and requires at least 4 hours to do it any sort of justice. We arrived just in time for lunch, on a day when it closes at 5pm. The food is good but basic, and quite expensive. The displays are wonderful and the shows -sea lions and dolphins are very good. The rest of the displays... More

We had an opportunity to watch our friends dive in the aquarium what an experience to be able to see that up close and personal. The dive instructor was fabulous we get a tour of the back workings of the aquarium. The dolphin show was really entertaining. I would definitely recommend a day they aquarium.
