Tennessee Aquarium press kit

Like a favorite fishing spot, people return to the Tennessee Aquarium to see amazing animals that swim, fly and crawl in natural habitats. This remarkable journey from the mountains to the sea takes visitors through three living forests under glass and puts them eye to eye with 10-foot sharks, giant spider crabs, river otters and alligators.

The Aquarium’s newest addition, Ocean Journey, takes guests into the open ocean where fierce sharks, stealthy stingrays and colorful reef fish glide through amazing coral formations. Visitors also experience a shark and ray touch pool and hundreds of free-flying butterflies. The weird and wonderful animals in Ocean Journey’s “Boneless Beauties” gallery include graceful jellyfish, a giant octopus and captivating cuttlefish. The original River Journey building takes guests on a freshwater adventure, with exhibits that showcase the Appalachian Cove Forest, a steamy Delta swamp and rivers of the world.

Outside the Aquarium walls, downtown Chattanooga offers a revitalized riverfront with miles of parks and public art, all surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountains.

If you can’t find it here, e-mail or call Thom Benson at 423-785-3002.
