I like to do the aquarium half marathon every spring. When you finish the race you get free admission to the aquarium. They have great exhibits. Come out and enjoy all that Jenks has to offer.

Wonderful exhibit. Kids love to walk with the Sharks swimming over their heads. The admission is discounted with a AAA Card. There is also a Senior Rate.

Might be a bit costly but it's worth every penny. Front staff is very knowledgable as well as helpful with you finding your sway around the facility. Walking underneath the sharks and fishes is so exciting! It's located perfectly for those traveling thru Jenks.

Positives: Variety of ocean and fresh-water life, free parking Negatives: Very crowded on Saturday, confusing to reach In late March, 2014, our twenty-something son and I took a Saturday trip up Route 66 to Jenks. Our destination: the Oklahoma Aquarium. The drive was enjoyable, but travel along the vintage highway was slower than on the nearby turnpike. Consequently, we arrived... More

My wife and I were staying overnight at the Hard Rock Casino and decided to see the aquarium. I had heard good and bad things, but I love aquariums, so we went. We are so glad we did. The exhibits were so colorful and clean, and the variety of displays was very appealing. My lone regret was there were two... More

We have driven past this for many years on trips further west. We finally stopped today. It takes about an hour and a half to two hours to enjoy this aquarium. It is easy to get to right off the Creek Turnpike. I was amazed at the variety of fish, turtles, coral, jelly fish, octopus, and, sea horses from all... More

This is a must see if you are in the area especially if you have children. Many different types of water creatures you wouldn't normally get to see.

The aquarium was much smaller than I expected it to be, and VERY expensive. The kids (9,8,7) had a good time, but I have seen much better aquarium's for half the cost. Also, we had planned to eat lunch while we where there - the website says that they have a variety of sandwhiches and wraps. However, the choices were... More

We visited the Aquarium on New Years Day! It wasn't too busy so that was nice. We were able to check out all the exhibits and not feel too rushed. It's the perfect size for us. Not too overwhelming. But the exhibits are amazing!!! Very well done and lots of hands on!! We will be going back!

I am a marine scientist and have lived all over the U.S. I lived in OK from August 2006 to Nov 2007 and my children were 4 and 3 yrs old. This aquarium was well planned out and the thought process behind making it kid friendly was awesome. It was a wonderful place to visit and my children still remember... More
