Great aquarium! A large variety of aquatic animals. The bull shark tank is the largest in North America. Only problem with the Aquarium is the snack bar.

Being in the middle of the country reduces the chance to enjoy the beach or sea life. The Oklahoma aquarium has a good selection of sea life and the largest bull shark collection in the nation. Kind of small for the price but its about location. Very easy access, well maintained, and friendly staff.

There are a variety of exhibits here from local OK fishes, including some state record fish. Exhibits that show they types of fish in our lakes, reservoirs and rivers. And there is a small but interesting exhibit with beaver, racoon... More

Largest collection of Bull Sharks in the nation. Great habitat for beavers and otters, my favorite because you can actually see inside the Beavers den via video camera.

My husband surprised me with this trip as part of my birthday week celebration, since we try to see Oklahoma. It was not crowded and we could take our time. Loved the variety of different fish and coral exhibits. The tanks were extremely clean and was able to see one of the tanks being cleaned from above. Lots of touch... More

For being in the heartland, this aquarium is a must see ! Their collection of fish, sharks and other sea creatures is top notch. This place is always busy and attests to the quality of their facility. You can even rent rooms for your get togethers -- whether it be a company party, wedding reception or birthday party.

It is definitely the best and most pleasing selection of aquatics in Oklahoma. It is a little pricey. The price for my family to get in once was almost the same a a year membership, so we got the membership. We live close and used it all the time, so it was really worth it. Beautiful displays and wonderful selection... More

A little pricey but the kids love it! Was large enough to take an hour or so to see it all and had several interesting species. Staff knowledgeable and friendly.

This was our first time visiting and we loved it. If your ever in Oklahoma this is a must stop shop. The price for adults are a little high and for my 3 year old I had to pay 11.95 I thought that was to much. But Sharks were amazing the tanks were so clean it was a great experience

I took my youngest daughter on a surprise trip to the Jenks Aquarium and was pleased to find that the offer a discount for Tulsa Zoo members ($2.00 of each ticket). It was still $25.91 (tax included) for one adult & one child ticket so it is rather costly. It is definitely worth the price! There are numerous touch tanks... More
