Tennessee Aquarium

Tennessee AquariumExplore a cove forest where otters play. Feel the steam rise in a delta swamp where alligators lurk. Visit a tropical island, touch a stingray and surround yourself with butterflies. Stand in the shadows of sharks overhead and in awe of thousands of reef creatures darting through dramatic coral formations.  At the Tennessee Aquarium you will journey from the mountain to the sea in River Journey and the new saltwater addition, Ocean Journey.

The newest addition, the "Penguins Rock" exhibit features 2 very active species of cold climate penguins.  These curious and loveable Gentoo and Macaroni penguins have moved into the recently built Ocean Journey building and are thrilling visitors.
