This is so much fun! We went to the Tennessee Aquarium last year and I enjoyed it far more than our local aquarium. It’s less crowded and the layout is smooth to transition from each part of the aquarium to another section.
Heads up scouts and college students, you can get half price tickets to the aquarium in February!
During the month of February, the Tennessee Aquarium will offer special half-price admission to members of scouting organizations and college students, staff and faculty members. The discount applies to Aquarium tickets, 45-minute IMAX film screenings and cruises aboard the River Gorge Explorer, as well as combo ticket purchases.
Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of America and all other scouting organizations can receive the half price discount by wearing their uniform, sash or a scouting activity shirt. Staff of Boy Scouts of America or Girl Scouts of America are also eligible for discounted admission with the presentation of a valid paystub.
The discount applies to the entire visiting party and is offered on all tickets purchased during the month of February, including repeat visits. Half price tickets are only available to be purchased onsite the day of your visit.
