What people are saying about Atlanta

Very nice. Get there early to wander through all exhibits in unhurried manner and beat the crowds. After viewing exhibits then see the shows. Remember to make your reservation for the various shows. The dolphin show was the best. Get there early, you are allowed re-entry so you can leave get a reasonable priced lunch then come back. ( Baja Fresh was a wonderful place for fast healthy moderately priced lunch close to the aquarium)

My family had the best time there this Saturday! All the exhibits were wonderful and we got to attend the dolphin show which was fabulous! Thank you for a wonderful family day!

Experience was great! Awesome place to visit with the family. Getting the tickets through Get your guide was beneficial and helped getting through entrance faster.

Spent 5 hours but could have spent 8. In the afternoon it started to get very crowded. Recommend on the weekends that you go early! Loved the dolphin show.

My family and I took our annual family trip to the aquarium this year and I must say we absolutely enjoyed it. Especially the dolphin show!!!
