Crowded but worth the time, 10/20/2013

Yesterday was my first time at the GA aquarium, I had visiting from out of state and I needed to entertain. So we went there, they were happy, so mission accomplished. A few things got under my skin... - long and slow lines, but overall, a solid A. Will be back, maybe next time friends will pay for my ticket! :)

Amazing, 9/18/2013

This place is off the hook! The best aquarium I have ever seen. The big tank with the whale sharks is amazing! I could spend days there.

Fun

We had a great time at the aquarium, but I think it's a little expensive. Besides being over-priced, the natural beauty of the sea life is undeniable. It might be a pricey outing for the whole family, but worth it, at least once.

I watched a fish get eaten

This place is the most interesting place I've been in town. You get to see fish and whales from all over the world. You have people really knowledgeable that can tell you about anything in the tanks and they do excellent recycling work. However, you don't have a single path to walk through and I always feel like I missed something. The place smells a little like brine and the food is incredibly subpar and overpriced for what you receive. The ticket price is high in my opinion but I know a lot of the money goes to research and outreach programs. And you can ocassionally watch a fish get eaten by a shark.

Not that great

The aquarium is pretty boring. The Atlanta zoo is a much better experience. All you can do at the aquarium is walk around and look at things. Older kids aren't even allowed in the play area, which is sad. It would be better and cheaper to take your kids to the zoo or the Fernbank museum as the aquarium really isn't worth the hefty price. It cost $70 for me and 2 kids to go. Luckily the baby was free.

AMAZING

As someone who has always worked in the animals 'industry', I am far more aware of what correct and pleasant conditions for caged animals are. Normally places like zoos and aquariums leave me depressed, as I see the improper food, housing, and care that the animals receive. This is not the case with the Georgia Aquarium. I was very impressed with the entire facility. The animals living there receive proper care, mental stimulation, food, and housing. Unlike similar facilities, the Georgia Aquarium is far more concerned with the health and happiness of it's inhabitants than with making a buck. These people go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the animals are healthy and happy. For a truly mesmerizing and wonderful experience, I highly recommend the Georgia Aquarium. For anyone that even just likes animals, a trip to the Georgia Aquarium will be a truly unforgettable and valued experience.

meh...not too impressed

for being the largest acquarium in the world i think it should live up to its title. it doesn't. it's just another museum. go in, pay, walk around, look at water life, go home. it's more of a default place because there's not that much else to do if visitors come to atlanta.

Never seen a better one

If you go spend the money for the behind the scenes tour; it was great and very informative. Seeing the whale shark up close was amazing.

I guess I'm not much of an aquarium person

Lots of fish and stuff. It's cool if you're into that thing. I wouldn't have gone if someone hadn't given me tickets. But that's me. Overall, it seems like a pretty nice place for those into this sort of thing.

Great Experience

This is as wll executed a concept as I have seen. I have been a member of the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago and I think the one in Atlanta is equally compelling. The moving walkway with the fish swimming overhead is awesome.

WOW it is LARGE

I was told this time to go over to the Georgia Aquarium since I wasn't traveling with my dogs for a show in Atlanta this time. I was told it's suppose to be the largest in the USA. I have been to several other aquariums over the years and they were correct - this has to be the LARGEST one yet that I've had the pleasure to tour. Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time here - there's a lot of fish, tanks and walking to see it all. You almost need two trips to get the real value and take it all in.

Huge Aquarium

The Georgia Aquarium lives up to its name as the world's largest. I just wish it was more opened in each of the viewing rooms. The food in the food court is a little expensive. Enjoyed the aquarium experience though.

Must see

This place is a must see. Be sure to bring lots of film. The only reason I have not been back is the cost.

Fascinating Fish!!!

It's fun and fascinating the first couple of times but you have to adjust to the prices which are set for out of towners. Repeat trips are expensive.
