Spring Break

See what’s happening at the Tennessee Aquarium this spring break!

Experience endless adventures

This spring, experience endless adventures on a world-spanning journey – all without ever leaving the Chattanooga Riverfront. As you wander through the River Journey and Ocean Journey buildings, you’ll meet furry, scaly and feathered animals from all seven continents!

Before embarking on this on-the-spot globetrot, download and print off a world-wildlife-themed activity sheet with fun games and trivia to get your brain primed for your adventure from the mountains to the seas.

Equipped with this knowledge and a little bit of excitement, you’ll be properly prepared for up-close encounters with a living collection of 12,000 animals representing more than 600 species. As you explore, you’ll see colorful fish from wildest Borneo’s Kapuas River and offer your shoulder as a perch for Monarchs in a tropical Butterfly Garden. You can perfect your waddle while watching Gentoo and Macaroni Penguins rocket through frigid water and get eye to googly eye with adorable baby Longspine Porcupinefish. And if you’re feeling extra brave, you can lay fingers on a Japanese Horn Shark, meet the world’s only tweeting Electric Eel or join anemones and crabs in facing down oncoming waves in the Vancouver Island exhibit.

When you’re done, be sure to swing by the gift shop to receive a free sticker to commemorate your journey.
