Went for a company party at the aquarium. It was very beautiful inside. I hope to go back with my family to take them. The shark area was so neat, but it made me a little dizzy.

I loved the time spent here with my kids, and grandson . Very nice exhibit, wish there were more discounts available as the cost can add up quickly for a family.

The aquarium has very basic there is a lot of different marine species and it was interesting for the smaller kids. I wish they had more interactions for kids and update it a little. There wasn't much activities to do. Overall for the money it was okay.

We were traveling through jenks and stopped in at the aquarium. It was one of the best I've been to (been to quite a few) it has a lot of hands on with feedings and being able to touch the crabs and stingrays. It was very reasonably priced, it was 14.95 for an adult admission. I'm pretty sure kids 3... More

My young children have a great time at the Oklahoma Aquarium. They are currently working on a new sea turtle exhibit that will open in March. The ticket price is pretty high, but the membership is a great deal if you plan to visit several times. The individual includes a guest for only around $60 per year. For our family,... More

Thank you MaggieB2010! We do understand why visitors consider our ticket price to be high, but we actually have one of the lowest admission prices for an aquarium of our size, so we are proud of that to try to expand our educational reach. We are so excited about the grand opening of Sea Turtle Island in March and can't... More

I love this place! The exhibits are so well presented. There are several touching ponds: shrimp, horseshoe crabs, shark and stingray, and tide pool among others. You can feed the turtles, see beavers and otters, and walk through a tunnel in the huge bull shark exhibit. The local fish exhibit is my favorite. You won't be disappointed. A must visit!

Who would have expected such a great aquarium to be located in Oklahoma? We were visiting Tulsa for the day and decided to stop by. We were pleasantly surprised! There are multiple interactive stations where you can feel sharks, rays, and other sea life. The shark tunnel was my favorite - only wish we would have been there for the... More

Thank you stefnicole! You're right, you don't expect an aquarium to be found in Oklahoma, but that's why we're here - so people far from the ocean can learn about the importance of marine life. Thank you for visiting! More

We had a great time at the Oklahoma Aquarium. At first glance, I thought it was a little pricey. However, once we saw the variety of sea life and such that they had there, we were very pleased and happy that we went there. Worth the price of admission. It was a very good family activity. Kids can crawl under... More

Thank you DJB2012! We hope you can come back after we open Sea Turtle Island in March. There will be an underwater observation station for kids to see the sea turtles swimming along. Of course, adults can crawl in too....;) More
