About the Aquarium:
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, enormous Arapaima giant catfish, and tons of turtles. You can also touch a sturgeon. Enjoy playful penguins, touch a stingray, and marvel at toothy sharks, lemurs, and butterflies. Plan on spending at least three hours to enjoy observing and learning about all of the Aquarium's diverse gathering of animals.
Come see our latest exhibit, Washed Ashore! From now until October 30th, come see over a dozen artistic installations of aquatic animals made from recovered plastic debris on display across our campus! Each colorful work was meticulously crafted by artists with Oregon-based nonprofit Washed Ashore using recovered litter to raise awareness of the threat water-borne plastic pollution poses to aquatic life.
