Georgia Aquarium Souvenir Guide Book
On November 23, 2005, Bernie Marcus, founder of The Home Depot, officially opened the doors to Georgia Aquarium—and with that simple act bestowed a tremendous gift on the city of Atlanta. At its opening, Georgia Aquarium rewrote the record books as the largest aquarium in the world, featuring—at 6.3 million gallons—the world’s largest single aquarium habitat. Almost immediately, the Aquarium began to revitalize the city’s downtown, providing landlocked Atlanta with a state-of-the-art aquatic attraction housing thousands of species of rare and incredible marine animals. Through magnificent images, engaging text, and fascinating facts, this commemorative book celebrates Georgia Aquarium, the world’s largest and most unique aquarium.
