GA Aquarium - a couple of notes

For those that haven't been lately, just a couple of notes for you if you plan to go any time soon (or even if you don't). These are just my observations as I worked the floor at the Aquarium.

  • It's the end of the school year, a lot of school groups are starting to make their way through for their last minute field trips. Bring your patience and be prepared for large crowds.
  • The vendors that used to be on the main atrium floor have moved upstairs. Where Planet Shark used to be is now a small hide-away cafe. The small vendors have moved there and there are tables available for sitting.
  • The best times to go are still first thing in the morning (at opening) or later in the afternoon (after 3). If you can spare a Sunday morning, it's usually busy but not necessarily as packed.
  • There are audio tours that you can download from the Georgia Aquarium web site. It works on your iPod or your cell phone.
  • There is a scavenger hunt you can print out for your kids to do. It's on the Georgia Aquarium web site under the Kids Corner.
