We visited the aquarium on a Thursday afternoon. It was not crowded. The cost was less than $10 apiece. The layout was great for being able to see all kinds of sea life in its environment. Places to get up close to stingrays, turtles, and such. Of course it is geared toward the children but we really enjoyed this attraction.

We drove for 3.5 hours just to see the aquarium and we were not disappointed. The building is well-designed with lots of open space to that helped prevent traffic flow issues. The exhibits were clean and the fish and animals looked very well cared for. There were multiple opportunities for our daughter to interact with various animals either in touch... More

They have so many attractions and animals to see here it's unreal. There are alot of interactive stations too. My kids loved feeding the stingrays. The staff is always friendly. We went towards the end of the day and even though we were still exploring when it was closing time, the staff did not rush us.

we have 2 teens....14 & 18. both enjoyed the aquarium. I will say that they both really like the otters and beavers the best. feeding the fish was awesome too. some of the volunteers(?)/ young adults are more helpful than others, but it was nice to see them employed and willing to guide a first timer to the "best" way...

I was happy to see the different kinds of sea creatures. I do love how they have the walk through tunnel. Very nice to stroll around for an hour or so. It is a little over priced in my opinion.

The info I received was this is a teaching facility, well I found it to be more like a museum and not as interesting as I had been told. This is good for elementary children, they were having a blast - most of their parents were bored. The only part I liked was the Shark aquarium. I guess this is... More

........what a nice surprise in a landlocked state ! A nice variety of specimens, many can be handled. Fabulous tunnel aquarium filled with bull sharks ! We visited during Spring Break, of course a busy time but the building is so well organized all flowed well. A great place to visit with children ! Oklahoma should be proud.

Our first visit to Jenks, Oklahoma to visit the Oklahoma Aquarium was wonderful. We loved everything about the place. My daughter and husband fed the sting rays, we were amazed at the "shark tunnel" we walked through, we took hundreds of photos and had a wonderful time. This place is great family fun.

We have been to quite a few zoos and several aquariums, and my wife even remarked this aquarium was better than the New Orleans Aquarium....which is saying something considering this is in middle america. PLENTY to see and do. The kids loved the hands on where they could touch the sting rays and bamboo sharks...also really enjoyed touching the starfish... More
