This is the biggest aquarium I’ve ever seen! Try and catch the early bird special for a cheaper ticket, before 11 am.

I have never seen a whale shark that big in my life! It also made me realize that we are not the only ones living here.

This is a pretty amazing aquarium! There are a lot of exhibits and shows to see from albino alligators to penguin exhibits this aquarium has it all. The price is pretty reasonable to get in considering Aquariums in the US. But the food can be a bit pricey as with most theme parks in the states. It is worth the trip though for sure and very kid friendly of course.

Large aquarium with a huge ocean exhibit that includes whale sharks, manta rays, and more; river; cold climate; and tropical coral reefs exhibits. There's a few shows, a huge ballroom with additional viewing, a large cafeteria, etc. Usually very busy! Pretty special though.

Can be expensive if you’re on a budget. Suuuper close to a lot of other museum and sights.

Absolutely best aquarium I've been to! They have the largest tanks in the country, and huge a tunnel so you can walk under the largest tank that contains the whale sharks. There's also an auditorium room with a huge glass wall the size of a movie screen so you can just sit and watch.

This aquarium is so beautiful and laid out really well. When it’s extremely hot in Atlanta or just a rainy day, this is the perfect activity for anyone! My husband and I enjoy going together but of course it’s a great activity for families and kids too. Don’t miss this if you’re ever in Atlanta!! It’s right across from the World of Coke so you could make a day of both if you wanted!

We are 3.6 miles from the largest aquarium in the U.S. It houses more than a hundred thousand animals and represents several thousand species, all of which reside in 10 million US gallons of marine and salt water.

It's no don't a great adventure in the heart of the city of Atlanta, GA. Everyone should allocate a whole day to visit the aquarium. I would recommend not to miss the Dolphin show.

Just an absolutely amazing aquarium. The sheer size and variety here are enough to warrant a visit, but you won't be disappointed y anything here, except maybe the crowds.

The Georgia Aquarium is my favorite (possibly biased since I'm from GA) because of how interactive and diverse it is. There's so much to do, and don't forget to go see the whale sharks!

Such a beautiful and wonderful place to learn and experience many underwater creatures in such a large scale, since this aquarium is one of the largest in the world.

I love going here. The exhibits are awe-inspiring & seeing many sea creatures up close is so amazing! I recommend for practically anything--although popular with families with children, it's a cool hang out for dates, hanging out with friends, & all kinds of situations. Go if you haven't already!!
