Find yourself deep in a world like no other.

In your heart you know it’s better.

The genuine article is always the best article.
But in the digital age, real has been pushed into a smaller and smaller
corner to wait its turn…as we scroll, click, and plunge into the gazillion ways to become glued to the digital world.

But there’s a place where you can plunge back into real.

Where you can go and have real experiences like no other. With real feelings. Real people.

Real animals from around the world that you never imagined you’d see.
…not found from just a google search, but out of genuine, wonderful, soul-quenching curiosity.

A place where real unveils its true self, beaming with magical moments of
surprise, delight and joy, for families and friends.

Come see how good it feels.

Tuesdays in the Field – Save Our Seas

February 8, 2022 9:00am - 1:00pm

The ocean holds around 70% of the world’s water and sustains over half of the world’s living organisms. It is responsible for supplying more oxygen than all of the rainforests combined. Today our oceans are facing issues like pollution, rising global temperatures, and overfishing. Join us during this session to learn about how you can help save our oceans and make a difference for the future.​

Tuesdays in the Field is a specialized program created for K-12 home school students. The Education team is excited to offer an experience that allows students the opportunity to engage in standard based instruction at their own pace. Our Tuesdays in the Field homeschool experience is offered the second Tuesday of the month, from September through February, between the hours of 9:00am-1:00pm. Participants may enter through the education entrance between 9:00am-12:00pm. Registration for the Tuesdays in the Field program includes Georgia Aquarium admission. At the end of the program, feel free to enjoy the Aquarium’s galleries and presentations once open to the public.
