The Tennessee Aquarium, Charles H. Coolidge National Medal of Honor Heritage Center and Chattanooga River Market have announced expanded hours of operations for the Fourth of July weekend.

Aquarium visitors during the holiday weekend can take advantage of expanded hours, 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 3-4. The final timed-entry tickets will be sold at 7 p.m. The aquarium will be open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, July 5.

As part of the Aquarium’s new health guidelines, timed-entry tickets must be purchased at www.tnaqua.org before arrival. Daily attendance has been temporarily limited, and a mask-only “early bird” admission is now offered each morning from 9-11 a.m.

Visitors moving through the Aquarium Plaza will find the Chattanooga River Market operating Friday through Sunday during the Fourth of July weekend.

The nearby Charles H. Coolidge National Medal of Honor Heritage Center will also welcome guests during expanded hours. The center will be open 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 3-4. On Sunday, July 5, the center will be open from 1-5 p.m. Throughout the weekend, living historians in military garb will make appearances on the Aquarium Plaza.
