One of the largest aquariums in the world, this beauty houses everything from beluga whale to a killer penguin exhibit and a live dolphin show. Your kids will flip out over the large viewing window in the Voyager exhibit when the whale sharks saunter by! Pro tip; you get in free on your birthday and kids under 3 are also free!
The Georgia Aquarium is the largest in the world, with the beluga whale & dolphin exhibits bringing in record crowds
As the world's largest aquarium, there's something here for adults and children of all ages. Whether your petting the sting rays, watching the live dolphins show or you're in awe of the gorgeous beluga whales, you'll love it here!
Great aquarium! Tooooo many strollers! – This is a really nice aquarium but they let too many people in at once! And most of the people have children and that equals STROLLERS!!!!! I pay more to get in so i should be able to see all the exhibits! To be honest they really should have one day a week that is only for adults! Nothing against children but they are noisy and the amount of strollers is ridiculous! I also went to SeaWorld this weekend and wow they have a good system down! They didnt allow strollers in some of the buildings and it was great! The management team from the Georgia Aquarium need to visit the SeaWorld team because they have a way better system that fits everyone!
Dolphin show was terrible! – I thought was going to see dolphins and get better educated or learn something about them...NOT! I felt like I took a wrong turn and ended up in Vegas, at a cheesy Elvis show where Elvis saves the world from a crummy animated "Pirates Of The Caribbean" world. I was just waiting on the edge of my seat wondering when the Johnny Depp impersonator was going to come out riding a dolphin. They did have dolphins in the show (about 15% of it) and they are beautiful, but they did not even tell us their names or acknowledge them at all. What a waste of my money and the opportunity to educate the public about such a beautiful creature.
Dolphin Show NOT Family Friendly – The Georgia Aquarium is by far the coolest I've seen. I signed up immediately for the annual family pass. With that said, I am so disappointed in the dolphin show. It was ill conceived and horrible. Why? It scared my three year old so bad he couldn't watch most of it. When it finally ended, he pleaded, "please don't make me do that again." This is suppose to be a family friendly environment and this show falls short with unneeded violence and dark scenes. I think someone forgot to tell the creators the show is about dolphins, not some scary made up story. I overheard lots of other people with the same comments. That's how bad it was!
The other problem I did not like was their horrible special effects. They were mediocre and boring. I expected more. If you are planning on bringing young children to see this show, sit on an aisle in case you have to leave!

Georgia Aquarium REALLY??? – I read the reviews for the Georgia Aquarium and either there is something wrong with the 17 people who gave them good reviews, have they traveled to other cities . This place was horrible , overly expensive , something that they just thru together to over charge people to get there money. It was a total waste of Money will never get taken for a ride again. Thanks Atlanta another way to pimp people out of there hard earned money,.!!!
My wife dove in the whale shark tank! – I have gone to the aquarium many times since it opened. My wife recently dove in the large tank with the whale sharks! It was very cool to watch them swim around eachother. I can't wait for the dolphin exibit this winter. Would definately recommend!
SUPER FISH – I love this place and will visit three more times within the next year.
Great place to go at night – The Friday night program at the aquarium is the way to go. There are no crowds, you can buy a wolfgang puck prepared picnic for two for not a whole lot of money, and there is a cash bar at just $3 a bottle for beer (the sign said premium but they "were out."
There were plenty of tour guides for the amount of people, so I was able to ask questions about the critters.
I am not sure how much it costs as I was taken, but it was a cool way to spend a couple of hours.
Many species – Great place to see many species of fish. If you get to catch the feeding of the whales it will make your trip extra special. Not a bad place to have a banquet.
Great Food – Very beautiful but pricey. Love the food. If you want to have a special event there you are definitely going to spend some money. All types of fish, whales, dolphins, etc. This is a wonderful place for a date or to take your kids.
