From salt water to fresh water, this aquarium in the Tulsa suburb of Jenks features a dazzling array of water creatures.  Oklahoma has an amazing array of underwater wildlife swimming in our lakes and rivers, such as seven foot alligator gars and 100 pound spoonbills, and the aquarium features special exhibits highlighting these native species. 

Roll up your sleeves and feel the difference between slippery, smooth stingrays and the sandy skin of small sharks in one of the popular touch tanks.  Other interactive exhibits let kids and adults feed stingrays and turtles.  The Oklahoma Aquarium is more than fins and flippers; don’t miss the Ozark Stream where playful otters, beavers and raccoons frolic just inches from your eyes.  Group tours are available.

We like to visite


From The Armstrong Homeschoolers on 06/23/14

We have been visiting this aquarium since they first partially opened! Many of the areas were still under construction back then. Now in its completion, there is so much this place has to offer, from educational to entertainment, it is amazing! I hold them in even higher regard for recognizing the importance of homeschooling in Oklahoma. They have certain days through the year dedicated to homeschool families, and it is so much fun! The workshops, and events they host are a wealth of knowledge and fun for the kids, as do the cool hands on displays. This is definitely a must see treat in our state!

Sounds like a kool place to vivit And reasonable in cost. We will be there over the weekend of June 15th. Can't wait to see it!!!!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 07/05/11

James, we don't currently list prices but that's something we're looking to do in the future. With over 15,000 listings on TravelOK.com it would be very hard to monitor the prices for accuracy and we would never want to create a negative experience for the site visitor. Please contact the aquarium directly or visit their website for pricing information. It's an amazing place and we hope that you enjoy a visit to Jenks real soon!


From Debbie on 07/02/11

I found your website very easy to navigate. Beautiful photo layout. Looking forward to visit the aquarium in the next few days. I am from the FortSmith Ar area.


From James Garrett on 07/02/11

Why doesn't the website include the entrance fee?


From Don on 04/30/11

Your website is terrible,it takes forever to find out what it costs to visit & then I find it's way over priced. Thanks but no thanks. When I want to go to a place like this,I'll go to the Texas state aquarium.
