Dive into two worlds of wonder and excitement at the top-rated aquarium in America. Begin with the freshwater exhibits in the River Journey building. The adventure continues with the Ocean Journey building. Experience two aquariums in one great city — Chattanooga.

Along the way, you'll have opportunities to come face-to-face with feisty otters, giant catfish, and tons of turtles. Enjoy playful penguins, touch a sturgeon, and marvel at toothy sharks and enormous Arapaima. Plan on spending at least three hours to enjoy observing and learning about all of the Aquarium's diverse gathering of animals.

The latest addition to the Aquarium, Lemur Forest will add even more excitement to your visit. Housed underneath the iconic glass peaks of the Ocean Journey building, this all-new exhibit recreates the landscape of Madagascar — from spiny forests to rainforests — and showcases the amazing abilities and extraordinary charisma of Ring-tailed and Red-ruffed Lemurs. These animals impart a powerful conservation message and will be featured in all-new daily Extraordinary Experiences programming.

Download the FREE Tennessee Aquarium app from the iTunes Store or Google Play to maximize your adventure. Use the app to plan your visit, check IMAX showtimes and to get even closer to creatures during the many Extraordinary Experiences programs offered free with Aquarium admission each day.
