College students, staff and faculty and members of scouting organizations can take advantage of half-price admission to the Tennessee Aquarium and IMAX 3D Theater during the month of February. Discounts apply to Aquarium tickets and 45-minute IMAX film screenings as well as combo ticket purchases.

Scouts must wear their uniform or sash to receive the discount, which applies to everyone in the paying party. To receive the discount, college students must be enrolled at or employed by a physical or online institution and present a valid student ID or online transcript. College faculty and staff can take advantage of the discount by presenting a pay stub.

The discount is available to the entire visiting party and applies to all visits between February 1 and February 28.

This discount arrives just in time to offer a reprieve from slate gray winter skies and frigid temperatures. The Aquarium’s Ocean Journey and River Journey buildings are full of charismatic, colorful animals sure to help stave off the seasonal doldrums, from leaping lemurs, romping otters and flittering butterflies to cruising alligators and a world-famous tweeting Electric Eel.

Visitors arriving in February will be able to catch up on many recent additions to the Aquarium, including vividly violet Purple-stripe Jellyfish and a new display of freshwater pipefish.

Arriving in the waning months of 2017, the Tiny, But Mighty Important exhibit features an engaging suite of interactive and high-tech displays - including a holographic animation - that focus on the importance of small fish and human behaviors that impact water quality.

Across the street in the IMAX 3D Theater, visitors will have a choice of two exciting giant-screen films. Amazon Adventure 3D follows the real-life exploits of English naturalist Henry Bates, who spent a decade in the world’s largest rainforest conducting research that provided what Charles Darwin called “beautiful proof” for his theory of natural selection. The newest addition to the theater’s slate, Conquest of the Skies, presents a stunning examination of the 300-million-year history of nature’s domination of the heavens, from Paleozoic winged reptiles to darting hummingbirds and graceful Whooper Swans.

  • Tennessee Aquarium: $15 (adults and college students) / $9.50 (ages 3-12)
  • IMAX*: $6 (adults) / $5 (ages 3-12)
  • Tennessee Aquarium/IMAX combo ticket: $19 (adults) / $13.50 (ages 3-12)
