The Oklahoma Aquarium is the state's must-see attraction featuring amazing aquatic life in immersive exhibits. You'll be transported to a tropical beach visiting the new Sea Turtle Island. View 300-pound sea turtles, reef sharks and Caribbean fish from three levels plus an underwater observation station. Experience massive bull sharks swimming alongside you and overhead from the safety of a unique walk-through tunnel and dome in the half-million gallon Shark Adventure. Send your kids crawling and climbing through interactive tunnels and caves in exhibits highlighting the Amazon River and kelp forest habitats. Literally thousands of fish, reptiles, amphibians and mammals introduce guests to life in our oceans, rivers, lakes and streams. The Oklahoma Aquarium is a fun, yet educational adventure for everyone!

We have visited this place often. The kids always love it. Lots of different species to see. The shark tank area is a walk through tunnel with water all around you, allowing you to see them swim all around.

We visited on New Year’s Eve and weren’t greatly impressed. The Aquarium is quite small with not a huge range of exhibits.

I love aquariums and have visited many of them in many states and countries. This is one of the least impressive. Their variety of creatures reminded more of a large pet store than of an aquarium. If you've never been to an aquarium before or...More

I had a few hours to kill so I popped over to the aquarium. It’s actually very nice and I was glad I had the opportunity to support a local educational resource like this. One word of advice: on weekdays, try to go in the...More
