College Groups


Annual passes are not valid for school programs.

Georgia Aquarium's two-hour college programs allow for focused learning opportunities where groups can expand their understanding of aquatic ecosystems. Programs take place Monday-Friday and can be scheduled at 12:45 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. We encourage college groups, if time permits, to first tour the Aquarium and then participate in the instructor-led program. This will allow for an enriched experience based on the foundational knowledge gained during the visit.

College group programs include admission. To book a college program experience or get more information, please call 404.581.4121.
