Tennessee Traveler: Aquarium Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- You've heard of the Ripley's and the Tennessee Aquarium but how about Aquarium Knoxville? It certainly gets its share of visitors, whether they're buying fish or just looking around.

The building simply says Aquarium Knoxville, you might pass it everyday traveling on Knoxville's Papermill Drive or I-40.

So what does everyone want to know about it?

"What the admission is, that's the number one question", said managers Leah Watkins,

For over three decades Aquarium Knoxville has been a hobbiest's dream.

The number of fish they sell is well into the thousands, but the Aquarium is also a getaway for many families just to look at the many species.
