Discover a secret reef where you can gaze into the watery world of
10-foot sharks, fierce barracuda
and silvery schools of fish.

Journey to the sea floor where
stingrays, eels and exotic fish dart around a magnificent coral reef.

Encounter a lush tropical beach with 100 feet of "shoreline" where you can touch bamboo sharks and stingrays.

Glide through a butterfly garden where hundreds of butterflies flutter about you and alight on the plants and trees in an indoor rainforest.

Be mesmerized by boneless beauties like jellyfish, octopus and cuttlefish.

Experience this celebration of the sea in the Tennessee Aquarium Ocean Journey building.

The Aquarium's new $30 million Ocean Journey building is an expansion of the Aquarium’s popular Gulf of Mexico exhibit. It added 700,000 gallons of saltwater exhibits to what is currently the world's largest freshwater aquarium.
