There's nothing like watching the Georgia Aquarium whale sharks swim over top of you!

Skip the 4-D theatre if you have really little ones. Take the backstage tour if you can. It was very interesting.

My family went to the aquarium for Thanksgiving and it was absolutely fabulous!!! Special thanks to Ruth for making our trip extra cool. We mentioned that our son was autistic and he was scared to see the 4D film and asked if she could reassure him that it was not scary, she not only did that but took him on his own mini behind the scenes tour and made him feel extra comfortable!!! She went above and beyond the call of duty and the customer service was absolutely fantastic... All the staff was friendly, happy and knowledgeable. The aquarium was beautiful and the shows were good. My son said it was "the best day EVER"! Great attraction. My family was so happy. We had a city pass and the price was awesome for ...

I think I have seen too many aquariums to really enjoy this one but its still nice to watch the colorful fishes swim by. Its definitely a must if you have never visited one. There are 6 different sections and each one is unique in its own way. We had taken the behind the scenes tour and learnt some cool facts about th...

I am so in love with this place. This was my 2nd time here and I still cannot say enough good things about it. There are so many things you can touch and feel - the animal lover in me is torn whether this is sanitary for the fish/animals to have everyone sticking their grimy hands in the tanks, but the filtration system seems to take care of it? I still touched everything I could - got yelled at for shooting the shrimp at people. Two fingers, only touch their backs. But it was so cool to see them torpedo up in the air! Okay, I'm cruel. The Dolphin show was really neat; we sat in the 2nd row since no one else seemed to want to sit there. We got slightly misted by dolphin water, but it wasn't bad. We could see...

**ATTENTION SCUBA DIVERS** Georgia Aquarium has an extremely unique program called Diving with Giants-- it's the only place where you can scuba dive and are GUARANTEED to see whale sharks (it'd be impossible not to since they are in captivity). Very cool experience. Though it's a pretty pricey dive, you can get a discount if you sign up with Diving World USA, a dive shop in Atlanta. And for the rest of you... Georgia Aquarium is like the Met of all aquariums. It's so dreamy, so magical, and has collections from all over the world. I'm an avid diver who's travelled all over, and I truly believe this is the best underwater experience non-divers can have. It's a must, MUST see in Atlanta. Right by CNN and the W...

When our tickets came to $56.50, my husband and I exchanged glances and shrugged. It seemed a little high, but we were already parked a short distance away, and we were ready to see some fish. Totally worth it. This was probably our very favorite activity in Atlanta. It didn't seem big enough to warrant the title of World's Biggest Aquarium, but it was an excellent way to spend two hours. The highlights were the petting tanks, the belugas and seals who kept bumping the glass, the penguins, which had a crawling exhibit made for children but fun for adults, and the OTTERS. OMG SO CUTE. We also loved the different varieties of eel and the lionfish. In addition to the pretty fishes, the interior was easy to navi...

Just went to the aquarium for my birthday by the way you get in free on that day. It's a nice aquarium and I will go back as new things come up or if family and friend...

The Georgia Aquarium was a great experience for me, specially since I had never visited an aquarium before. They had a great selection of animals, including various species that you could touch and interact with. Viewing the entire aquarium does not take too long, and it's a nice way to spend the afternoon with the family and/or friends. I also viewed the Dolphin Tales show, which was quite nice as well. It's designed more for kids, and adults will find the story a bit cheese, but the dolphins are fantastic. It's very heart warming and adorable to see the loving rapport the dolphins share with their trainers. The beluga whales were also a treat to see. The whale shark was impressive as well. I recommend visi...

We were really impressed with the collection of fish and marine animals from all over the world, and all the giant viewing areas to see them.  There were a few displays (penguins, belugas, otters) that were so crowded that we couldn't really get up to the glass to see anything, and people weren't really moving so others could take a peek.  This was annoying and I'd love it if they'd put a conveyor belt like in the shark tube.  It would move people along so everyone could get a chance to see the animals. The Dolphin Tales show was really one of the most cornball things I've ever gone to at an aquarium/marine theme park.  It was more like an opera that happened to have dolphins in it than a true dolphin show. ...
