Sample Field Trip Itineraries

There are several options for planning a field trip to the Tennessee Aquarium. There are two buildings: Ocean Journey and River Journey. It takes an hour to tour Ocean Journey and over an hour to tour River Journey. There are several additions to your self-guided tour of both buildings: an IMAX movie (45 minutes), and/or a classroom program (45 minutes), an auditorium program (30 minutes), or a Lunch and Learn (45 minutes). The Aquarium opens its classrooms at 9 a.m. Eastern time for classroom programs; the buildings open for touring at 10 a.m. The times in the following sample itineraries are flexible to meet your needs.
