Oklahoma Aquarium, Jenks

#3 of 9 in Zoos & Aquariums in Oklahoma
Look for biggest bull sharks in captivity at Oklahoma Aquarium, as you walk through the underwater tunnel that was once featured during Discovery Channel's Shark Week. Feed otters, beavers, and alligators, or learn about different kinds of jellyfish. You'll have the chance to see baby seahorses, usually found wrapped around the plants in the water. You can even touch sea anemones and stingrays in the interactive exhibits. Check the aquarium's feeding schedule online before you go to pinpoint when you can watch divers feed the fish in the coral reefs and the sharks in the tunnel.

  • One of the best places we’ve been. I stayed a night with my family. It was a great experience. It was a surprise for my son. Staff were really friendly and very helpful. We had an incredible time. Educative place for everyone.
  • We have been to the Kansas City, Seattle and Atlanta Aquariums, so this is what I have to compare against. It is pricey, but for what all there is to see and do, it is reasonable, in comparison. My 4 year old enjoyed feeding the turtles carrots. There are numerous opportunities to touch creatures. Our favorite was Turtle Bay. The huge turtle was engaged in the visitors. Great photo opp. The shark tunnel was enjoyable to walk through. This is a good sized aquarium. Also, when comparing to other locations, this one is different as what they have to offer. They are all different. Coming this spring, they will have an outdoor play area. The staff was very friendly. I did not catch the gals name, but we found her handing out maps at the entrance. We asked if she would take our picture in the main lobby, but she was the one who recommended that we walk back to Turtle Bay. This showed that she actually cared and seemed happy to be at her job, as well as making guests happy.
