you got to spent the day. because it's going to take that much time. they have a experience everyone should enjoy. very clean, had benches space around to look upon the displays. gift shop was nice but a little pricey (but that part of their income) had several restaurants near by. hotels also close to the aquarium..
I was amazed on how big some fresh water fishes can get! Quite scary to be exact. The salt water were nice, bit more different types of fishes and animals than the fresh ones. Kids had a blast! Definitely recommend!
Very nice, clean and well maintained facility. Will probably take the average family 2 hours to look around both sides without including gift shop time, etc. The River Journey side is surprisingly much larger and more in depth than the Ocean Journey side. Highly recommend seeing this during your stay in Chattanooga.
Well worth the cost of admission. It made me wish we lived in Chattanooga and could visit more often. The exhibits are incredible. Knowing a little about the animals and what care they needed, I never felt guilty about the exhibits being too unnatural. The new exhibit coming in spring should be amazing. We can't wait to return.
This is a fun place to take the kids and spend an entire day. The aquarium is actually split into two buildings- one being the River Journey and the other the Ocean Journey. We actually purchased backstage passes for the Ocean Journey and got to see a top side view of the penguins, feed the turtles and watch a feeding of the fish from the top of the tank, talk with the divers and see an exclusive animal ambassador that isn't on display to the public. Very hands on and very neat. I liked how the ticket access allowed you to leave at any time and return, so we actually broke away for lunch and visited B-dubs which was within walking distance. Cant wait to visit again.
