The price was a great deal!!! The staff members were friendly and very knowledgeable!!! The scuba men are great!!!! The animals are very well taking care of! Very clean and nice area!!! My favorites were the sting rays which u can touch and the jelly fish are beautiful!!! River side and ocean side both as equally interesting!!!! My only irritant is misbehaved children and parents being oblivious! Next time will wear earplugs I think it will be much more enjoyable on silence to soak it all in because it is very informative and breath taking

The Tennessee Aquarium is laid out so you follow a stream from the "mountains" to the sea. It is a terrific visit for kids - of ALL ages - and is both fun and educational. While not the physical size of the Atlanta facility - the Tennessee Aquarium probably more enjoyable, less expensive and the hip of a pleasant visit to a good ole American small city.

I've been to the aquariums at Monterey, Baltimore, Gatlinburg and Myrtle Beach. The Chattanooga Aquarium is as good or better!

My three year old daughter, husband and I enjoyed our trip to the TN Aquarium. The aquarium is split into two buildings. It is a very expensive attraction to visit, but it was neat to see all the fish, butterflies, penguins and more!
You cannot get a AAA discount there...you have to get the tickets beforehand at a AAA office.

On our travels through Tennessee we had 3 people say to us that we must visit this aquarium whilst in Chattanooga, so we did. And what a place, most certainly the best aquarium i have been to. River animals in one building then ocean life in the other. Fantastic, you can touch the stingray, be entertained by the otters and penguins, and even get to see a bird show. If you are in Chattanooga, you really must go.
