Tennessee Aquarium - Review

Amazing! That’s how your reaction will be when you visit the largest freshwater aquarium of the world which houses more than 9000 creatures. This glass pyramid aquarium hovering over the riverside lets you take a tour of the entire Tennessee River ecosystem, starting from Appalachia to its end mouth in the Mississippi Delta. Along the journey, you will see creatures like alligators, eels, frogs, ducks, snakes and otters as well. Besides, also see the sturgeon touch pool of the aquarium.

Climb aboard the high-speed catamaran of the aquarium to take a tour of this entire path. Along with this, also try to catch up a 3D show at the IMAX theatre.

Tennessee Aquarium, Chattanooga Reviews

  • This is a fantastic aquarium; it's clean, large and diverse. One building is the ocean exhibit and the other is fresh water. I found the ocean exhibits to be amazing, lots of jelly fish and sharks. The very top of the building has some lemurs, a shallow tank to pet sting rays and a butterfly garden. The fresh water side has many different kinds of ecosystems and a large variety of fish and turtles. If you find yourself in the Chattanooga area please do yourself a favor and stop by this amazing attraction.

  • The Aquarium was awesome, great exhibits and displays. I wished I got there sooner so I can enjoyed all the shows. Staff was friendly and informative. The only thing I regret is the food court outside the aquarium. Worse food ever not worth the price, bring a sandwich save your money. If you are going to buy food, the trailer next to the vendors 100x better. The food court has no afflictions with the aquarium. Save your money. But the aquarium was worth the price and they did give me a veterans discount.

  • Love this aquarium! I've been visiting since I was 4, and we make sure to stop by whenever we're in the city. The walk through takes about 2-3 hours (depending on how much you're reading and how many are with you) and is very interactive. All the animals are active. Staff is helpful, friendly, and informative. Got to see a dive show in the ocean reef exhibit-make sure you work one in if you're there around the scheduled times. Definitely a great place for kids. Had fun browsing the gift shops too.

  • I love this aquarium. It's my favorite of all the ones I've visited. Great place for kids and Grand parents. The design is wonderful. There are 2 buildings which allows you time to take a break between the River and the Ocean. We went back to our hotel and lunch and waited on a small storm to pass. As long as you've entered the building by 6:00pm, you can still use your ticket.we spend a total of 4 and a half hours leisurely viewing. Plenty of parking. ❤❤❤

  • I've been to a number of different aquariums around the country, and this one is my all time favorite. Excellent diversity of animal and plant life - and so educational. I've been dozens of times and still find new things to experience and enjoy. There is so much for kids to learn and have fun with - but adults will have a great time too. The grounds outside are so much fun to walk around in as well.
