Georgia Aquarium is Open to the Public

We have limited capacity for each of our 30-minute entry timeslots, new cleaning and sanitization protocols, and updated processes to ensure the Aquarium is operating in accordance with the advice of the state and federal governments and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Tickets need to be purchased in advance of your visit.

Please review all of our Frequently Asked Questions below for more information.

Note: Guests are asked to arrive at their ticketed time to ensure entry.

Georgia Aquarium takes the safety of our guests and our team members very seriously

If you’ve visited us in the past, please note these changes have been put into place to keep our guests, staff, and animals safe:
