Cost our family of five over 130 dollars and we were done with both buildings in around 1.5 hrs. They do have some neat stuff to view, but for me it was just okay for the price

This aquarium has four floors of wonderful exhibits that includes sharks, jellyfish, countless species of fish, touching tanks and even lemurs. Not sure why they are there. Maybe they escaped from the Chattanooga zoo! Plan on being there for a few hours. My only complaint...More

The Tennessee Aquarium is not cheap to visit but well worth every penny. In the oceans building the tanks of sea life were amazing, with lots of information provided on each exhibit. This is the first time we have seen so much information on jellyfish...More
