Posted no knives or guns and they wand you at the entrance. Before I add it to a list. Does "Georgia Aquarium Inc. (non-profit, 501c3)" mean that it is not publicly owned or operated? From what I have read the Marcus Foundation gave $200mil and with it set up Georgia Aquarium Inc. as a non-profit, 501c3. All donations went to this company. I don't think any tax money went into it.
