Tennessee Aquarium Homeschool Day

The 2012 Winter Homeschool Day at the Tennessee Aquarium will be will be Monday, January 30. The homeschool day offers discounts on admission, the IMAX Theater and gift shops in each facility as well as special programming for homeschool families. 

Home School Students:
$6.50 Aquarium
$5.00 IMAX
$10.25 Combination Aquarium and IMAX

Home School Parents:
$22.50 Aquarium
$ 7.75 IMAX
$27.50 Combination Aquarium and IMAX

A guided behind-the-scenes tour will be offered for $5.oo and must be purchased at the ticket office when you purchase your tickets. Be warned- this sells out quickly. I’ve been at the aquarium twice, once on a homeschool day,  and it was full both times.  If you plan to take part in the special behind-the-scenes tour, plan to arrive early in the day. 

In addition to the discounted prices, homeschool students and parents will also receive a 10% discount at the Aquarium gift shops. If you are a member of the Tennessee Aquarium and you are a homeschool student or parent, you will receive a 20% discount. These prices and discounts for homeschool families are available only on January 31st, during the Tennessee Aquarium Homeschool Day event. 

Do you have questions about visiting on the Homeschool Day? You’ll probably find the answer on this FAQ Page. If  you’re unable to find what you’re looking for, you can contact Bray McDonald at or call (423) 785-4093.

Have you been to the Tennessee Aquarium? What tips would you give a first time visitor?


  1. Thanks for posting this. I will keep this in mind once we get there next year. (I am sure they do it every year.) The prices to these type places can get really expensive for a family of seven!

  2. Yes, this is typically offered every year- in the spring and fall so I'm sure you'll have plenty of time to visit. You may also want to check out their membership packages. My family of five came out ahead by purchasing the annual pass instead of paying individual admission prices. Once those kiddos are over 12 and you begin to pay adult prices it gets tough on the wallet to visit nearly any attraction. The TN Aquarium is pretty neat though. We really enjoyed it.

  3. We have been here a time or two and loved it. We have a lot of fun at the Aquarium but, we also like to walk up the street infront of it to a BBQ place called sticky fingers. the food there is awsome and just befor you get to the BBQ there is a little used book store (the store is little but it is packed to the gills) I have found alot of Abeka books for my boys there in the past. and if you walk around behind the Aquarium there is some art work on the street. The river front area is neet to go see too. we seen the Columbus ships on tour there a while back. If anyone has extra time in the area the Chickamaga battle field it a very educational place to go too. Lots of cannons and and war relics. There were a lot of deer roaming around too.


I love hearing what you think! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Blessings!:)
