    Awesome Place, I really enjoy it.
  • Diana R.

    Buy tickets ahead of time! Or you have to wait in this line…

    Plan ahead; the parking garage takes 30-45 minutes to enter on the weekends. Then another 45 minutes to buy tickets. So arrive ~2 hours before you want to actually visit.

    Impressive shark tank.

    It is an absolute must go in ATL

    Lots of water here. Mostly salty.
  • Dolores L.
    Almost exactly the same as the Singapore aquarium on Sentosa. If you've been there, you can skip this one.

    The only US aquarium that houses whale sharks and many manta rays

    Get there when it opens at 8 and go to the ocean exhibit first.Enjoy the whale sharks before everyone else.
  • Jordan C.
    Buy tickets online before you go and skip the lines. Dolphin and Sea Lion Shows alone are worth the price of admission!
  • Jordan C.
    Wayyy too crowded. Could barely move insight the exhibits.
  • Jackie T.
    Very cool space. Pricey to get in, but lots of activities and shows to make your price worth it if you utilize them.

    Seals show, dolphins show, large aquarium tank with whale sharks, manta rays, giant grouper and more; play areas for children; convenient parking garage
  • Christina S.
    $40 admission for a TINY aquarium! But the Whale Sharks (Atlanta has the only ones in the Western Hemisphere) are amazing and worth it. Go at 3:00pm for the feeding!
  • Tamara Trixia W.
    It's bigger than Tennessee Aquarium and more sea life to see!especially the Whatever and the moving floor is the best!
  • Jerry M.
    The sea lion show was very entertaining and fun and should not be missed on any visit to the Georgia aquarium

    I love the fact they used acrylic instead of glass, so you can look at the incredible habitats very clear without any distortion or dizziness you normally get with glass. Great for date and family.
  • Bianca A.

    All of the exhibits are amazing and worth checking out. Give yourself at least minimum 4 hours to see it all.
