Start at the top of a raging river and then delve beneath the surface to discover all the life that teems within. It is all a part of the experience of the world's largest freshwater aquarium. Within the 12-story structure, you will see birds, snakes, river otters and turtles in their natural habitats, and fish indigenous to the Tennessee River. Special exhibits include the Gulf of Mexico showcase of fierce sharks and jellyfish exhibit: "Jellies: Phantoms of the Deep." Admission charges are: $17.95 adult; $9.50 children. Discounts and package rates are also available. Call or visit web site for details.
Me and my husband visit this aquarium in 1993(opening wekend) and it was exciting and fun to say the least and when had our two boys they each have visit different aquariums, but I think those Little black and white guys(the Penguins) were a sure fire winner in our family.
Great for the whole family... We've been to several aquariums and this was by far the best (and least expensive!) I could not believe all the variety they had and how nice the staff were. We wish we could go back today... It's a must in Chattanooga!
This is the best designed aquarium i have seen, and the largest fresh water aquarium ever- one of two buildings, the second building is salt water. Loved the way the River Journey-fresh water started you out at the top of the building and the setting was the higher elevations of the Great Smoky Mtns, and then as you work your way down, you follow rivers to the Gulf, with other rivers around the world represented. Also loved the butterfly room where you walked through surrounded my many flying butterflies. The Penguins were awesome.
I love the new addition. It is bright and so well laid out. The butterfly room is wonderful and I LOVED the penguins. They are so personable. It is so incredibly relaxing. I would tell anyone wanting to go to the aquarium that you need to stop and sit and enjoy. Many people were rushing through and they missed a beautiful experience.
We absolutely loved the penguins. They were absolutely adorable. We also liked the dive show that was put on. It's wonderful for a 2 year old, but not stroller friendly. The aquarium in Gatlinburg is much better.
Our church youth group spent a day at the Tennessee
Aquarium. No one had any complaints. They have two separate buildings a river journey and an ocean journey. The place is so big that you aren't pushed and shoved by others trying to get a look at the exhibits.
The only snag we ran into was when buying our tickets.
I was told when I was inquiring about ticket prices over the phone that we could pay using a check from our church since we did not have a church credit card.
When we tried to pay by the check we were told you could only pay by check if you had made reservations.
Finally after 30 minutes of explaining we got our tickets.
Make sure to check out the I-max theater.You can purchase a combo pack at the Aquarium.
