Very crowded. Great craft vendors outside. Short drive. Staff was okay. Bathrooms okay. A good visit for a weekend in Chattanooga.

It's been a while since I visited the aquarium--this is my first time visiting the ocean building! Our favorite exhibits were the stingray touch tank, the otters, the jellyfish, and the sea horses, but everything is great to see!

We have been to several aquariums in the US and this one is by far the best. Give yourself a minimum of 4-5 hours to see everything, and don't miss the butterfly garden. I almost walked out of it with one on my hat.

The care of the animals is well done and they all look clean, great and healthy, the large aquarium with the huge sea turtles was breathtaking. The variety of species was outstanding. Great value for low cost. I would see again.

The Chattanooga aquarium is well worth visiting. From butterflies to fresh water fish to large species,so interesting. The penguins are a big draw,so cute.
