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 thoroughly enjoyed our trip from the adults to the teenagers and even the 3 year old. So many things to see, do and learn. The shark tunnel was everyone's favorite! Very friendly and helpful staff and the exhibits were very clean!

All of the exhibits are free after admission. The only thing you have to pay for is to feed the sting rays or freshwater turtles.
