Dive Into This Top Rated Aquarium

A remarkable journey from the mountains to the sea.

The Tennessee Aquarium, located on the Tennessee Riverfront in beautiful downtown Chattanooga, is consistently rated as one of the top 10 aquariums in the world. Visitors trace the path of water from the mountains to the sea within the Aquarium’s two buildings, coming face-to-face with fascinating native animals to amazing creatures that thrive in some of the most remote locations on Earth. In addition to myriads of colorful fish, guests love watching the Aquarium’s feisty otters, playful penguins, lemurs, turtles, alligators, and jellyfish. Guests can also explore a butterfly garden and touch Lake Sturgeon and Stingrays. Visitors can interact with aquarium experts during daily animal programs that are offered free with Aquarium admission.  

The Aquarium also offers two behind the scenes tours each day for those who want to explore the inner workings and learn more about how the staff provides expert care for more than 12,000 animals. The Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater is the only theater in the region with the IMAX with Laser Projection System. Wildlife films, projected onto the giant, six-story screen, place you in the action – underwater or to the edges of space. Be sure to download the FREE Tennessee Aquarium app which has the daily program schedule and other information to help you plan your visit and make the most of your day of adventure.

This is a perfect weekend getaway trip or spring break adventure for you and your family! Learn more the Tennessee Aquarium on their blog, Facebook and Instagram, or in the newsroom.
