This is a very nice aquarium that Oklahoma should be very proud of. ALL of the exhibits were clean--I cannot imagine the amount of work behind the scenes to maintain everything in such great working order. Some other reviewers have commented that it is pricey. You can find coupons--our hotel had some and I am sure there are others to... More

Wonderful place for kids and adults. The shark tank is impressive with a glass tunnel through the middle so the sharks appear to swim directly overhead. You can pet the sting rays and star fish and even try to catch shrimp. You can see everything in 2-3 hours.

I live in Jenks and have been to the aquarium many times. Always a fun trip for all ages. Especially enjoy the hands on exhibits and watching the fish feelings.

I've only been once and once will be enough for me. They have some cool exhibits but not to go see over and over again. Take a bunch of money if you're taking the kids because it ain't cheap.

Went their with family; was pricey but we found coupons ( ONG offers some in your bill; Triple A & Metro Family). Went on a Saturday, was somewhat crowded but didn't seem to bother us. The exhibits were exciting & colorful. The grandkids enjoyed feeding the turtles & petting the sting rays & the small sharks. The tunnel with the... More

The kids really enjoyed all the hands-on interaction with various animals (stingrays, baby sharks, horseshoe crabs, prawns, etc). They also loved the shark tank with the tunnel you could walk through to see the sharks swim above and all around you. I felt the price was a little high since we have a large family and was disappointed that it... More

The aquarium was good, but a little high priced for the length of the visit. It was really crowded and it still only took 2 hours to see everything. The zoo is cheaper and provides longer entertainment. I was disappointed to see that the long promised (years ago) sea turtle exhibit still isn't available. Of course, they can currently make...

Great place for kids of varying ages. Everything is indoors so you can get out of the heat. The feeding shows were really interesting. I wasn't expecting much since it's so far inland, but it is really a very nicely thought-out facility. Shark tunnel, feed the rays, pet the rays, touch pool, Amazon fish exhibit, eels, jellies, snakes, turtles, river... More

But don't come to Tulsa for this only, have other places to see because it will fill a few hours, not a whole day. Unless your child is destined to be a marine biologist, then sign up for the membership! Yes, it is pricey, and they used to have half price Tuesday, which I think they should bring back. It...

First off, do not let others say this is not big or worth going. It is such a wonderful experience and such a true gem to behold right here in the middle of Oklahoma! There are so many amazing animals to see here, it is just phenomenal. The set up is really great you feel like you have traveled the... More
