I love animals, but it was 50/50 for me. The facility is extremely but clean and well maintained. I really enjoyed the petting tank (small sharks and stingrays), as I love seeing them in the wild. The shark tank was also cool. The quantity of fresh water exhibits was larger than I expected, which is not really of interest to... More

Featuring fish and creatures from the Caribbean, South Pacific reefs, as well as a great exhibition of local lakes and streams. Nice aquarium.

We had a lot of fun at the Oklahoma Aquarium. It is not a huge place but the exhibits were very interesting. There were a lot of opportunities to do hands-on activities. There were also several feedings going on while we were there, which was fun for the kids. The shark tank was impressive. The kids really liked the tunnel!... More

I really enjoyed the aquarium in Jenks. My boys loved touching the sting rays and had a blast getting into a shark cage for pictures. ( no , it was. It under water). It was on display. There were many, many different rules of aquatic life. I took numerous pictures of the sea creatures. Also, they have beavers and you... More

Great place for kids, lots of information and places to play. Plenty of benches for older ones. I had a mixed age Girl Scout troop and my adult daughter brought her boyfriend to meet there. Live interactive (such as live feedings) and they were even setting up for a wedding while we were there! Shark exhibit where you walk under... More

We went to the Aquarium as it was within walking distance from the Holiday Inn. We thought it was a bit pricey for the size. However, even though it is small, it is very nice. We were able to look at the exhibits without being crowded. The overhead shark tank was very enjoyable. They have a small snack bar. The... More

This was our second visit here. We always have a great time looking at the exhibit. It would be nicer though if it was bigger. It seems a little overpriced for a small place.

I was a little hesitant going here at first since I didn't think an aquarium in OK would be worth much considering I spent a lot of time at the Shedd in Chicago as a kid. It wasn't terrible for the money. I wanted to read the bad reviews and people are just unrealistic. Food at any museum/zoo is overpriced,... More

Our family has been here several times and we absolutely love it!! So quiet, and clean, and so much to see. Can't WAIT to see the turtle exhibit when it opens. My favorite room is the jellyfish, I could watch those for hours. Oh, and the otters, I wanna take one of those home. And I am totally jealous of... More
