One of the largest aquariums in the world is the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, USA. The aquarium was opened in a purpose-built building in 2005. It is the home of over 100,000 animals which represent thousands of species. The animals are held in tanks that hold around 10 million gallons of seawater. The aquarium groups certain species into certain tanks in order to have themed exhibits and keep all its animals safe. Some notable animals in the tanks at the aquarium include beluga whales, bottlenose dolphins and manta rays.
The aquarium is a short walk away from the ‘Civic Center’ metro stop which is accessed by the Gold and Red lines. It is also a short walk away from the ‘Carnegie at Spring’ tram stop. The 10 and 51 buses stop at the aquarium.
Opening Times and Admission
The aquarium is open seven days a week, 9am-9pm except for Fridays when it closes earlier at 5 pm. Admission is set at 32.95$ for adults and 28.95$ for children.
