Aquanaut Adventure: A Discovery Zone
Introducing Georgia Aquarium’s newest gallery, Aquanaut Adventure: A Discovery Zone. This new addition invites guests of all ages to embark on an exciting, educational journey through the Aquarium’s upper levels while completing a series of entertaining challenges. Participants also have the chance to become a certified Georgia Aquarium Aquanaut, or Aquarium Scientist, after completing their journey!
Aquanaut Adventure is a unique experience that allows parents and children to learn about aquatic life during their expedition through a variety of immersive environments. The gallery offers seven different routes each with seven different adventures, providing multiple opportunities for guests to come back and complete all of the challenges. Only five out of the seven routes have to be completed in order to receive Georgia Aquarium Aquanaut certification. These challenges engage guests in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM)-related activities.
As Aquanauts-in-training, participants will explore fresh water and marine habitats, scientific research, how animals thrive in extreme environments, and even catch a glimpse into what it’s like to have a career in aquatic and marine sciences. The gallery instills a sense of appreciation for our oceans, lakes and rivers of our planet and an understanding of the organisms that thrive there.
Access to Aquanaut Adventure: A Discovery Zone is included in admission with the purchase of a General Admission ticket. The gallery is open to the public in the afternoons, though times may vary – check with our information desk upon arrival for more information. To begin your adventure, just find our Aquanaut Adventure entrance on the second floor of the Aquarium!
