Atlanta >Georgia Aquarium
“It has fun, child friendly exhibits, interactive sections, and you can view things which you can't see anywhere else.”
“especially enjoyed the tunnel where the fish swim all around you.”
“It definately is a beautiful place and the cafeteria offers a variety of great little meals, they are pretty pricey though.”
“This is a great place for the whole family, your mind will drift into another world of sea life and how fish of all kinds survive with one another, this is very educational for the whole family, its a must see.”
“They let way too many people in the aquarium for it to be an enjoyable experience.”
“The cafe has a great assortment of food, but it is a little pricey.”
“As long as you don't go on the weekends, you'll have a great experience.”
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!
Very disappointing. Very.. Seriously, it felt like a fish mall. Everything was based around the food court. I think they decided to just build a place for people to have proms and such, and decided fish would be a neat back drop to such events. Half of the fish looked like they'd been through hell and back. Penguins were very sad looking. You're paying $20 to see clown fish, jelly fish, cat fish, and lots of rude children running around everywhere.
Box of Demons.
This place is very nice if you can stay there the whole day. The price to stay for one hour is 22 dollars, which is NOT worth it!! Believe me.. You have to wait at least 20 minutes to go through an area to see the fishes. Even then, you have some unintelligent mother blocking the view with her kids, or someone who just doesn't want to move. There is no courtesy and the staff doesn't do a good job with keeping people moving.
If you don't have much patience and have a tight budget, this place is not for you. Sure it's really awesome, but it was downright miserable for me.

I was disappointed. I was hoping to see something unbelievably gigantic. For US standard, GA Aquarium is a shame, please stop putting the word 'The largest in the World' or whatever exegerated languages, because it isn't.
The species they have are limited, the viewing screen is so small that you have to fight with the crowd to lean closer to see what is in there. Then when you will feel totally ripped off when you saw what they had are just normal clown fishes that you can find in the pet store.
Besides the beluga whale, you get to touch star fishes, corals, prawns, sting rays, and baby shark. Those are the good part and only part that excites me.
Don't pay $23 to get your disappointment. Chicago aquarium is far better than them.
waste of money, ridiculous crowds. ridicuous crowds of loud busload tour groups (i went on a wed. afternoon) clog the bottleneck halls between aquarium windows filled with (besides the beluga whales, which were very cool) pretty sad exhibits for such a boastful venu. the place is set up like an amusement park and smells of the food court which sits in the middle. maybe an 7 year old would be impressed, having not seen large tanks before, but anyone else...forget about it. the aesthetics are a joke. nothing but very fake looking boulders for walls. i've serioulsy been to moderatly priced aisian restaurants that had more ambiance. save your money...and don't forget it's $10 to park.
