There's a lot of stuff to see and do here. I have no real basis of comparison tho as this is my only aquarium experience. It can get crowded at times to and by crowded I mean so crowded that moving is impossible! The gift shop is nice and the staff is friendly enough as well. This is a nice... More

We took the grandkids to the Oklahoma Aquarium in August 2014 and had a great time. It is unbelievable how many different types of sea life can be displayed in one building. There is fresh as well as salt water fish and sea creatures for viewing. If you go be sure to be there during feeding times. It's hard to... More

Not bad for a small aquarium in the heartland. We go quite often and they are always adding on. I can't wait to see the sea turtles. The shark exhibit is one of the best I've ever seen.

We have family in Tulsa, and we've heard great things about the aquarium for years. This summer, we finally had the free time to visit, and as much as we wanted to love it... We were SO disappointed. For around $60 for a family of four (with a coupon), we saw everything within an hour. Several exhibits, including the "Ozark... More

Very good displays and lots of species for a smaller aquarium. I especially liked the displays featuring native fish.

We enjoyed visiting the aquarium. Loved getting to just take our time to really look at the fish and other exhibits without rushing through and not knowing what we have just looked at. Do wish there were more exhibits though to view. Took about 2 hours to go through the whole aquarium.

We were in Oklahoma City and had some extra time so we made the drive to the aquarium: best decision I've made in a while! Really neat experience, it was a bit pricey but we still had fun. They're trying to raise money to build a sea turtle exhibit... Hopefully next year. Next time we're in the area we are... More

We had planned for a trip to the zoo, but didn't get into town in time so we decided to go to the aquarium instead. They took our picture before we went in so we could purchase souvenirs afterwards if we wanted to. It was a nice atmosphere and we got to see quite a few interesting things. The room... More

Great option for a rainy day. Fairly small, but nice exhibits. Plenty of benches to sit and view the tanks.
