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!

Beautiful Aquarium

This is a beautiful, but small aquarium. Though it wasn't large, ALL of the exibits are top-notch and well done. Their new sea turtle exhibit is beautiful.

This place has creatures that I have never seen before, even in larger aquariums! Very friendly staff and clean facility. Lots of neat little activities for the kiddos. Definitely a must-visit spot in Tulsa!

We went with a group of friends and my 2 kids had a lot of fun and learned quite a bit and got to see creatures they normally wouldn't get to see. Probably my biggest complaint was that a couple of the tanks were way too small for the animals in them- like the Eel- and the Beaver and Otters... More

We love coming here every year. The variety and display of aquatic life is top notch. The walk-though shark tank can only be surpassed by actually scuba diving in the ocean with sharks. The Brand new sea turtle exhibit is wonderful! The turtles are so huge and seem to absolutely love the attention. It almost seems like they are actually... More

We had a great time at the Aquarium with kids age 2, 4, 8. The exhibits were spaced out and wasn't too crowded. There are many that all you to touch and feel and interact with is so good for kids. The shark exhibit is really cool and would try to schedule your trip around getting to see the shark... More

The aquarium is very well laid out with many hands-on exhibits. The small children in our group were very ecxited for the opportunity to touch, feed and see up close so many sea creatures. Feeding the manta rays is especially fun! Sea Turtle Island is new and beautifully done. The aquarium is not too large, which makes it great for... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this aquarium. It was bigger than I expected, with lots of neat exhibits. I was especially impressed by the number/variety of hands on experiences. You can touch shrimp, starfish, nurse sharks, rays, and feed turtles and rays, which was fun. Adding some opportunities for kids to crawl through tunnels to pop up in the middle... More

We went here on spring break and it was amazing. Course we did end up here on a day with the orchestra and 10 schools so it was crowded, however, the exhibits were so nice and well taken care of. The sea turtles were spectacular and so was the shark tunnel. It was almost $16 dollars per adult to get... More

We have visited the aquarium several times over the years and it just keeps improving. I look forward to each visit just as much as the kids do. The new sea turtle exhibit is spectacular. They do a phenomenal job of making the exhibits interactive for children while still preserving as much of a natural habitat as possible. The tanks... More
