How to Make a Reservation

Reservations for the Tennessee Aquariurn, I MAX Theater and educational programs are easy to make using our online registration by visiting http://www.tennesseeaquarium.org (click on Kids & Teachers at the top of the screen and then on the Field Trips link). You may also make your reservation directly through our Group Reservations Department Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:45prn EST. You may reach them by calling (423) 265-0698 or the Aquarium's main number at (800) 262-0695, ext. 3600.

A FREE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM IS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST FOR SCHOOL GROUPS VISITING THE TENNESSEE AQUARIUM AND/OR IMAX THEATER. Additional information about your field trip is available here . Reservations are accepted up to ten days prior to your visit.

For a more enjoyable experience, we recommend scheduling your Aquarium visit during the months of September through March. April and May are much busier with both school groups and general admission visitors.

It is our goal to provide the highest level of safety and satisfaction for our guests. In order to do that, the Tennessee Aquarium has limits on the number of people who enter our buildings at any given time. Therefore, it is important that you are ready to enter the building at the reserved time stated in your confirmation package. If you are late, we may need to reschedule your time of entry based on availability. It is possible that your group may be divided to stay within our defined building limitations. (Availability during April and May is very limited.)
