Great holiday gift idea. Quite a bargain for your family.

There's a lot of magic at the Tennessee Aquarium. You see it on the faces of visitors every day. After simply watching the way a jellyfish pulses gracefully or observing penguins waddle across a rocky shoreline to grab a fish causes the eyes to widen. Suddenly, sharks aren't the only ones displaying big, toothy smiles.

Aquarium members get to enjoy these moments time and time again. Take the Anderson Family for example. That's Luke Anderson above enjoying an Ocean Journey outing. His family has received a Tennessee Aquarium gift membership for several years. Luke's mom Vicki explains: “My son loves going to places where there’s something to learn about. From the geometric designs on the turtle shells to the behavior of the otters, there’s always something new and fun to learn about at the Aquarium.”

Vicki cannot say enough about what the gift of a family membership, given by her own mom, means to her family. She describes their membership as “A thoughtful gift, a great deal and a memory-maker that lasts a long time.”

Mother as well as grandmother Mary Brown also takes pride in giving this unique gift each year. She explains, “You can’t go wrong. It’s a win-win.” She encourages everyone to consider an Aquarium membership as a gift for the upcoming holiday season, or any time of the year for that matter. “When you give a membership as a gift, not only are you giving a fun and unique gift, but you are also supporting the Aquarium’s many conservation efforts, like the reintroduction of lake sturgeon in the Tennessee River,” Mary said. “As someone who is giving a membership, you help the Aquarium with its mission of conservation while giving someone close to you a unique experience that lasts all year.”
