Tennessee Aquarium - Review

Tennessee aquarium chattanooga is the largest freshwater aquarium of the world which houses more than 9000 creatures. Public chattanooga aquariumlocatedon the banks of the Tennessee River in Chattanooga. This glass pyramid aquarium in Tennessee 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. It will take 2 hours to see the both two aquarium River Journey and Ocean Journey. Along the journey, you will see creatures like alligators, eels, frogs, ducks, catfish, penguins, sturgeon, sharks, snakes and otters as well. Home to 12,000 plus animals belonging to around 800 different species, the Aquarium, which has been accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, is an interesting place to visit.  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. To explore the path from the mountains to the sea and to know more about the fascinating creatures found in different habitats of the world,  plan a visit to the best aquarium in America.

Tennessee Aquarium, Chattanooga Reviews

  • This place is worth the price, they make sure to keep the establishment cleanly all hours of the day and all days off the week. They exhibit many kinds of maybe life from the many continents of the world. I find that they try to envelope you in the life of the animals with touch ponds for fish, an outdoor enclosure where many types of butterfly roam, among the many things. It is never "too" crowded, and the best times are when they have the scuba divers in the tanks feeding sharks, mantra rats, and many amazing looking fish. The experience here never fails to impress. (Also the staff have never once been outspokenly rude or mean to myself or other visitors)

  • World class! This is a top aquarium. The presentation is excellent, particularly in the River building. Ocean is also wonderful. Both buildings start at the top floors and follow the path of water down through to the depths. From their smallest snail to their largest shark, no detail is overlooked. Make sure to stop and chat with the wonderful staff at the petting areas (stingrays and fish). A pure delight for both the young and the young at heart.

  • My daughter and I hadn't visited the aquarium in roughly 6 years. We started withe the "ocean tour". Pretty cool, but a bit on the short side. The penguins seem to be the main attraction here. The "river tour" offers a lot more to see, many more levels and tanks. Overall, we had a blast and will definitely be back soon!

  • This place is awesome. I went to the Georgia Aquarium earlier this week, and we decided to check out this one because we had heard it was much better. We went there to today was amazed at the size of the place as soon as we walked up. It was initially a little confusing on where to purchase tickets, but after that it was amazing. We started in the ocean side, and it was huge. It starts outside, and works you down from the top. There were tons of different types of animals. We caught part of the dive show as well. After the ocean side we took a break and went and got lunch. After lunch we returned to go through the river side, which in my opinion was even better than the ocean side. Again you start at the top outside. After that you work your way down and you proceed deeper and deeper into the river. Each level has a variety of animals. Some of the fish that they have were ginormous. There was also a number of fish that I had not seen before in any of the aquariums that I have been to. All in all, if you are anywhere close you need to check this place out.

  • Absolutely incredible Aquarium. One of the three biggest in the world. Worth going to Chattanooga just to visit the aquarium. Very comfortable temperature inside. Be prepared to spend the whole day. Bring an extra phone battery if you plan on taking a lot of photos. The Electric Eel is pretty amazing. The playful Otters were so cute. Don't miss the butterfly room in the Ocean aquarium.
