We enjoyed the entire aquarium with its vast array of unique underwater creatures in addition to the new fond knowledge we all acquired while there. The best part was near the end while visiting the shark exhibit and they were swimming above our heads!! It was the coolest thing ever!!

Aside from being a bit expensive it was a lovely place to visit. it is for for the family, no matter what age. There were many varieties of fishes and in some areas we were allowed to touch the stingrays which was an amazing experience along with the shark tunnel.

Different from most aquariums I've been to in that there wasn't much ocean life to look at which is what I love so I was a little disappointed there but they are unique in having a large collection of local wildlife to look at. It was interesting to get to see tHe fish that live in the streams od good... More

We added this stop at the last minute and were very glad we did! Great activity that didn't take all day, it had good parking and access, not too crowded so there were no lines and it got us out of the heat for a couple of hours. Many exhibits with a lot of variety, great information, plenty of hands... More

Great place to stop! Especially good for kids. Touch pools and feeding stations add to the experience of this modestly sized aquarium. If you live nearby, it hosts a great venue for events, EVEN WEDDINGS!! Plan on 2-3 hours to see/ experience everything. Pack a sack lunch to eat outside or purchase at the snack bar.

It was perfect for a visit with my two grandchildren who are six months and 2 years. The exhibits were well displayed. Events such as feedings and presentations through the day are posted. Great family day!

This aquarium had a very good mix of exhibits. Of course, we enjoyed the sharks, beavers and river otters. The exhibits are educational, but not "preachy". The whole aquarium is very relaxing.

Oklahomas first aquarium is what I expected it to be -- average. Not much has changed, aside from rebuilding some exhibits. The sea turtle exhibit has been waiting to be completed for some time now. It is a single story aquarium, so if you're not careful, you can go through the whole thing pretty quick. The price is my disappointment.... More
