Georgia Aquarium

  • Georgia Aquarium

The exterior of the 8 million-gallon Georgia Aquarium (404-581-4000), the world’s largest, was designed to look like a giant ship breaking through a wave. As guests enter the huge atrium inside the building, they’re led into the facility by “a wall of fish” guiding them inside. They then have the choice of entering five galleries. Each gallery is easily identified by an icon and signage at the entrance: Georgia Explorer has a light house; River Scout displays a cascading waterfall; Cold Water Quest has an ice covered cliff; Ocean Voyager offers a peek window into the huge habitat; and Tropical Diver has two video screens displaying the perspective of a fish on a reef. Guests will enter each gallery and then return to the main atrium before entering the next gallery. Visit Georgia Aquarium for information on current exhibits and admission prices.
