We have been here several times and always enjoy going back. There are exhibits for people of all ages. The interactive exhibit where the kids can touch animals is great. The shark tank that you can walk under and the see the sharks swimming over you is amazing!

My family has visited the Oklahoma Aquarium on four occasions, most recently in early October. We enjoy it every time. The staff is always friendly and ready to talk with us about the animals. My kids learn something new with each trip, and enjoy the talks and demonstrations by the aquarists. The wide variety of marine life allows you to... More

I have a two year old boy and a seven year old boy who loved the aquarium. We went on a rainy day, and it made a gloomy day a lot better. Entrance into the aquarium is a little priey ,but some of the money goes into taking care of the animals, that appear to be well cared for, so... More

My family of five adults went here on Saturday afternoon. It was a little pricey but when you consider some of the money goes for the upkeep of the animals it is worth it. The animals appear well cared for. They have a lot of fish and other animals to see. My favorites were probably the jellyfish which are almost... More

I live real close to this aquarium and want to like it so bad, but it has very little exhibits and the charge of admission to get in is ridiculous. The people working there that I've encountered are pleasant but I will not be returning unless they drop prices AND get more exhibits.

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
