My daughter and I stopped in on September 13, 2014. This was a Saturday so it was a bit crowded. We did get to pet the sting rays. Also we went and walked through the shark tank that was very neat. We both liked it. Only downside would be the admission cost at over 15 dollars per person for adults... More

Loved it! Several hands-on exhibits that allow you to feed the fish or, even better, touch them. Our favorite was getting to touch the Sting Rays. Awesome!!! We liked watching the feeding exhibitions (otters, beavers and alligators). There is also a underwater tunnel in the shark display that allows you to walk among the sharks. Pretty cool! Very reasonably priced... More

I have been to quite a few aquariums and I have to say that the Oklahoma Aquarium was right up there with some of the best. The building was very clean, modern and well-kept and the exhibits were all very interesting and they had a good variety of fish.The cost is a little pricey but don't let that keep you... More

Myself, my husband and a close friend went to the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks, Oklahoma on August 29, 2014. It was totally awesome! There was a huge variety of sea life, coral, and sharks. The shark tube was the best. Walked through a tunnel with bull sharks and nurse sharks swimming all around us. It was almost as good as... More

Fun place lots to see. Jellyfish are cool. The shark tunnel is pretty awesome. A little costly but then what isn't these days.

When we walked in there was a shark being made of plastic bags. The gift shop and the snack bar. Those are the first things that you see. Then you get in the animal area and see some of the most wonderful sea and lake and river creatures ever. My nine year old sun loved the sea urchins. I loved... More

The aquarium is always very entertaining. Price has gone up a couple of dollars so be sure to hunt down a coupon to save the $2. It is one of the best aquariums we have visited with lots of touch tanks and opportunities to feed the animals.

It's small but this aquarium is really well laid out and still packs a ton of interesting and unique animals! I was really surprised and had a lot of fun. You could make it through in about an hour but I spent four hours watching some of the creatures and drawing them. There were some pretty awesome interactive touch pools... More

I've been to many aquariums in the U.S. and was pleasantly surprised with the variety of marine life, although the facility is not large. I learned about and saw some creatures that I haven't seen before and that's a big thrill for me! I love jellies and they have several kinds; if you've never seen an upside-down jelly, it's worth...

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
