CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga welcomed its 20 millionth visitor on Sunday.

According to a new release from the aquarium, Nicole Brooks stopped at the aquarium with her three children while the family was en route from Indiana to Florida.

She said she decided to visit the aquarium because her daughter loves penguins and turtles.

The family was given a family membership to the Aquarium, passes to other Chattanooga area attractions and a behind the scenes tour where they were introduced to the penguins.
