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.

Awesome place!!

Awesome place to bring the family and learn about different mammals. Get there early so you can get good seating to see the dolphin show.

I have been to a few aquarium's over the years, the majority of the aquarium is standard and what you would expect, however the large tank housing the whale sharks is something else. They have a great viewing room and I could have easily sat there for hours, in fact I did and didn't know. I am never a fan... More

This was a great day trip. The shows were good, food was not crazy expensive. Parking was a bit expensive but location of the parking deck had to be expensive property. The fish were amazing. I have been to a few aquariums and this was one of the best.

Dolphin show short but great. Splash zone is splash zone! Great for all ages. If you go, do not bring lighters. I saw a whole box waiting to be thrown out.

I buy the yearly pass to visit this aquarium and only had good time very time. The dolphin shows are very good, watch the beluga whales and the humpback whales are just too good. The ballroom is equally good for conferences.

Georgia Aquarium is one of the highlights in Atlanta. There is a variety of sea life to see and you can also see a sea lion show.

A great choice but expensive and we missed the shows as the finish early. I saw a albino alligator so rare and would have died in the while if not rescued. The whales were fab and the walk through tanks are amazing. A good day but as I had limited time in Atlanta next time I would go in earlier... More
