Kids looking at animal


Inspiring wonder and appreciation for the natural world is what we do every day.

Please sign up for our Teacher's E-newsletter to receive important teacher resource and educational information from the Tennessee Aquarium.

Each year the Tennessee Aquarium’s award-winning education staff reaches nearly 200,000 individuals with inspiring programs delivered both on the Aquarium campus and throughout the tri-state area. Whether its homeroom or homeschool, Tennessee Aquarium educators offer a variety of age-appropriate education programs to help your children achieve their goals.

Recent studies have proven that students need learning experiences outside the classroom. Empower them to be enlightened by nature while exploring River Journey and Ocean Journey, viewing educational IMAX 3D films or connecting with nature through an interactive education program. You’ll know they’re receiving a well-balanced lesson. They will thank you for a great day of adventure-filled learning with amazing animals from around the world.

Tomorrow’s environmental stewards are learning how to care for our natural resources today at the Tennessee Aquarium.
