Small Fry Mini Programs

Want to spend some quality time with your little one while learning about the world around us?

Join us at the Tennessee Aquarium on select Tuesday and Wednesday mornings for our Small Fry Mini-Programs! Drop in from 10:15 am - 11:00 am to participate in fun, engaging activities designed to appeal to 2-5 year olds. On these special days, we will meet live animals, play games, read stories and create fun crafts. These interactive programs are a great way to start your child on the path toward understanding and appreciating nature!

Programs will be held on the lower level of the River Journey building next to the Seahorse Gallery. They are FREE with aquarium admission.
