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!
Fine fish finding – As long as you don't go on the weekends, you'll have a great experience. I made the mistake of going on a holiday weekend, it was packed. The fish are still great, the whales, etc, but, I felt a little like I was in a fishbowl with the huge crowd...I went one other time on a Thursday, fantastic! Then you really can get a great viewing experience.
Great place for family and friends who visit! – Had a great time at the aquarium. Would suggest it to anyone who is visiting or lives in the area. My husband and I even bought annual passes. Definite must see when coming to Atlanta.
great family place! – took my mom to the titanic exhibit and then roamed around the aquarium together. we had tons of fun and enjoyed the exhibit thoroughly. my mom has lived in tropical areas for many years and really enjoyed seeing animals from some of those regions. outside of the initial tours, everything else is extra- bring cash.
Great spot to see. – We were annual members for 2 years and my kids loved it! Overall we've always have a great time. There are 4 basic tours you can take, even a "petting zoo" area. The cafe has a great assortment of food, but it is a little pricey. There is a great 4D movie you have to see if you are there. The gift shop, which you have to wlak through to exit, has a TON of items, some you could get in any store, and most of which are also a little pricey. This should be on your to see list if you are visiting the city!
An alright aquarium. – The outside of the building is beautiful. The inside is alright, but you almost feel forced to move from exhibit to exhibit.
Avoid Weekends and Holidays – I wouldn't say that the Georgia Aquarium is the Best in the world, but I do reccommend visitors to go to compare to other aquariums in the world. It definately is a beautiful place and the cafeteria offers a variety of great little meals, they are pretty pricey though. The have a great section for kids were they can play and a place were kids can touch and learn about the stingrays, baby sand sharks and starfish. Kids under 3 get free admission. It is very informative and puts the fish and underwater mammals in their proper environments. I did notice that everytime I go there that there's less and less fish. That kind of makes me wonder.
a big disappointment – I was so excited when I found out that Georgia was getting an Aquarium I absolutely loved the Tennessee Aquarium. As your entering the main lobby of the aquarium your welcomed with a rush of noise. It was way to loud and crowded you could barely see the animals. People were just standing and talking in front of the tanks and there were no employees around to talk to about the loitering. It was not worth the money that spent at all. You just didnt have standing room it was very unorganized.
GA baby – Great place to take kids. I had a fun and enjoyable time at the aquarium. Please take your kids and close relatives. Price is very affordable.
Georgia Aquarium, it's allright. – The aquarium is ok as far as the layout and the attractions, but what discourages is the cost of the food court and gift shop, forget about it. You come away like , you want me to spend this much for that. Peace. So the experience is diminished by the cost of the other goods. Also there should be a portion in the museum to relax. The Belugas have personality the whale sharks need more room. But perhaps volunteering to assist in the upkeep would give better insight as to what it takes to run that place. we could be on the outside looking in. But as an original AT alien, I am greatful it is here. It beats the zoo, by far!!!
Its Nice the first time around... – It was really nice the first time I went. The second time around kinda felt repetitious. But it was still fun.
