“Tulsa visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Loved the aquarium, my 4 year old granddaughter was amazed at each different exhibit. We fed the turtles and touched starfish and stingrays. Very good attraction for young children and adults alike.

“worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I have been to lots of aquariums in different countries and I grew up in an island but still I enjoyed this aquarium. Different water creatures from pond, river, sea and deep ocean are here.You can experience here touching shrimps, stingrays etc. Its comfortable walking inside the building, its cool, cafe inside if you get hungry but the entrance ticket ( around $14 / adult) and souvenir shirt ( $21 each) are expensive. Overall Im satisfied.

“Lots to see up close”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We were adults without children and still had a great time. There were many more varieties of sea life than I expected, and I'm looking forward to going back when they complete more exhibits they have in the works. It was a hoot.

“No charge !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were part of the first to arrive as they were opening for the day. For some reason their ticket processing system was not working at the time so we were all let in free of charge. Not sure how long or how many were given this opportunity but at least a couple dozen were entering same time as us. I don't know of any other business that would offer this straight out without first asking for cash only payment with no receipt. Once inside the displays are nice, hands-on displays fun and educational. One in our party was in wheelchair so took a little longer to browse through everything. Finished up in about 90 minutes but place was not crowded at this time on Sunday so no waiting to see next exhibit.

“Good aquarium for a place far away from the sea.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Having been pampered with aquariums in san francisco, monterrey bay, newport and seattle, this one is pretty good. The kids enjoyed it but i would say it's overpriced.
