This is a great little aquarium. Lots of interactive stations for the kids. There is one where they can touch starfish, stingrays, baby Sharks. Be sure to check out the beaver and otter feedings, the animals were neat to watch. The shark tank was awesome. Lots of angles to watch them from. The aquarium Itself only takes a couple of... More

A great time for families with lots of cool things to see and do. Check out the Electric Eel feeding, definitely worth the time. Also, walk through the Shark Tunnel. It's amazing to see them swimming all around you. They have lots of interactive activities! Don't rush through, spend time check out the tanks and enjoy the beautiful animals. I... More

So I was surprised that the Oklahoma Aquarium was located in the Tulsa area. When my friends and I pulled up in the parking lot, I wasn't too sure about it based on the Cape Cod décor of the building. However, once we got in, I was pleasantly surprised! There were lots of exhibits featuring all sorts of fish and... More

We made our second trip to the aquarium just after Christmas, about 5 years after our first. Our 4 and 8 year old kids loved it, and so did my wife and I. The animals on display are beautiful and the facility is well-kept. Highlights for our family include the shark tunnel and the river animals exhibit which included beavers,... More

All my family gad a great time in the aquarium. We enjoyed watching the different animals while they were fed. I recommend you to check the feeding schedule before visiting it so you can enjoy more. The price is a little high, but you can use coupons.

It certainly isn't the nicest aquarium that we have been to though it is impressive for the Midwest. The walk-through shark tunnel is the nicest part. It is kid-friendly and worth seeing if in the Tulsa area

We enjoy visiting this aquarium when we come to town from NY. Bring our grandchildren who live in OK. However the prices have increased a lot recently and not sure it is worth it. The shark tank is awesome, full of bull sharks up close, can sit on the bench and watch or walk behind the tank and feel like... More

We went the Monday after thanksgiving, and had the place to ourselves. Loved the walk thru shark tank. You can get very close to the exhibits. This is not in the same league with the Monterey Bay or Steinhart Aquariums, but very nice being 1000 miles away from the nearest saltwater. admission was $16 each, I think that was fair

I live over three hours from this establishments. I drove with my two young children as I had friends tell us we just had to go. The touch tanks were a complete let down, the lighting was awful, there weren't many in the parking lot but the building was full and one was not able to move about easily. Simply... More

We have been here twice now and each time we have a blast! The animals are all healthy and interesting. The best part for the kids was to pet the Rays and play with the shrimp. I loved the sharks. I will keep coming here over and over even though it is a 3200 km drive. :)
