Georgia Aquarium – Atlanta

The Georgia Aquarium opened its doors to the public in November 2005 and is today the largest aquarium in the world. Situated across from the Centennial Olympic Park, the Aquarium has thus far attracted millions of tourists.

Although most of the aquatic animals – totaling tens of thousands – are from the local environment, the Georgia Aquarium also houses over 500 non-indigenous sea creatures. With over 60 different habitats to choose from 12,000 square feet of viewing windows, the Georgia Museum is a place to spend a whole day with the family.

Two of the most incredible attractions are the tanks which include the three Beluga whales and the four whale sharks. As some of the largest creatures to grace the ocean, this is testament to the engineering feats of the Aquarium.

The Aquarium does not only function as a source of entertainment, but also as a source of learning and training. A visit to the Aquarium is a highly educational and enjoyable experience. Visitors should not miss the 4D show and the Learning Loop. The Georgia Aquarium is open all year round with discount tickets available for groups and for children.
