The Tennessee Aquarium is one of Chattanooga’s top tourist attractions, and for good reason. It’s a great place to visit. There are two buildings housing aquariums – one for River Journey and one for Ocean Journey. A separate nearby building house the IMAX theater. (photo below)
Inside the Ocean Journey, you are greeted by a few beautiful feathered creatures. Don’t miss the fresh water stingrays that swim by the path.
There is also a “petting” area where visitors can actual touch small sharks and stingrays. (Note: hand sanitizer stations are located nearby.)
There is also a butterfly garden that visitors will enjoy before heading on to see wonders from the ocean.
The penguins are a joy to watch. They will watch you, too.
Posted by the aquariums are guides to the different species of fish in the tanks.
