Wish we would have choose a better time to visit the aquarium (spring break time so very busy with pushy children). Other than that it was a great trip. It is very dark inside the river side. Ocean side was my personal favorite- moved more smoothly, exhibits had more viewing space/places to sit and watch the fish.

Wonderful experience! Lots of exhibits for young children and it was fun to see things that we dont have at the Atlanta Aquarium. I would definitely suggest bringing a lunch or eating a late lunch at the cafe or pucketts as it is super crowded during lunch.

We had a great time visiting the aquarium. It was a bit expensive, but to know the money is used to protect endangered species and conservation, it is worth it. My daughter loved it and was so happy to pet the stingrays and the sturgeon. The IMAX movie was a good add on also. Keep up the good work in raising awareness of our environment.

This aquarium has received a lot of complimentary reviews. After visiting, we now know why. They really thought about the customer experience as they designed the buildings, making sure you can see the sea/lake/river life from multiple depths. Also appreciated how they made some of the exhibits interactive (where they could). As most parents know, teenagers can be extremely difficult to please - but both of ours really enjoyed the experience here!

Fun again, after many years. This is a beautiful facility, and central to all the many good things to do in Chattanooga. We spent a leisurely three hours to see everything offered. Ample pay parking nearby.
