So you guys charge us over $30 to get in the aquarium and then our favorite part is closed for some guys retirement party??? On a saturday at noon??? The main reason for us is to come see the sharks trough the big window and you throw a party there and close up the entire section?? How disappointing this visit... More

Andrea, We apologize for your disappointment with your visit. The Oklahoma Aquarium is available for rent for parties, meetings, weddings and other events at any time. One option for events is the shark view room which was what the organization reserved and paid for. We do keep the shark tunnel open during these events so that other guests are still... More

Have been before, but still a good day trip for those of us within 100 miles. Lot of aquatic life to see, a shark viewing "glass " tunnel, several children's activities that allow touching of the fish and biology information.

This is the second time I have been to the Oklahoma Aquarium and it was as enjoyable as the first time. It was no too crowded when the lovely wife and I went this time. The layout of the place works well in being able to basically walk on one side and then the other so you won’t miss anything.... More

When in Tulsa, this is a "must go" location. There are tons of exhibits and activities for all ages. The staff is friendly and it is obvious that they care about what they are doing. Their is an admission fee, but it is reasonable considering the overhead and the length of time you can spend there. When school is in... More

When we pulled up and went it, it looked pretty small. After paying the steep entry fee, we started walking around and were surprised by how many fish there were. We spent about an hour and a half there (2 parents 1 child), and we had a good time. In the end I thought it was a worthwhile experience and... More

We have always loved the Oklahoma Aquarium, and it continues to up its game. The exhibits remain top notch, and the staff and experiences improve each time. We were especially impressed with the talk and show put on by the scuba divers in the large tank this time. The feedings of the piranha and electric eel were also a big... More

Our family of four went here Dec. 21 on a Monday. We thought that our almost four year old would like it and she did. My wife and I were impressed as well, however our six month old was mostly uninterested. We arrived late, about 4:00. Last visitor can enter at 5, closing at 6. It wasn't that busy inside... More

Great place to visit. My 4 year old daughter loved it, she had a blast. You can feed the Sharks on specific days. Great for adults as much as the kids.

We had 6 kids ranging in ages from 4 to 14 and they all enjoyed! Even the adults were intrigued. So many "hands on" experiences. Sure to keep the little ones (and big ones) occupied.
