Ranked #1 overall for guest satisfaction in the country, the Tennessee Aquarium is home to more than 10,000 animals and an amazing variety of fish.

Guests start at the Tropical Cove at Ocean Journey.  There they can pet sting rays in the touch tank.


On level 2 are the adorable penguins. They seem to enjoy watching visitors and might put on a little bit of a performance for you.

At the Secret Reef you can watch yellow tail snapper, southern stingrays, cownose rays, sand tiger sharks, green sea turtles, and more swimming around the reef.

Like Ocean Journey, guests make their way to the upper floor at River Journey and work their way down learning about freshwater habitats and the animals who live there.


The Tennessee River Gallery features fish, reptiles, and amphibians that can be found in the Tennessee River.
