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.

  • This is my favorite aquarium in Oklahoma. They have a good selection of exotic sea life. What is also awesome is how well designed the aquarium is for children. They have tunnels that allow the youngsters to get in the middle of the tank. They also have an awesome shark and ray petting area. Overall, this is a fun experience for the family.
  • An amazing experience! Touch a horseshoe crab.... feed stingrays and other fish..... see gorgeous giant tanks with huge specimens both fresh and salt water! So much fun and the cafe has great burgers AND they sell beer. Make a day of it!
  • Beautiful. I was recently watching an educational/informational video about marine life. It explained why sharks couldn't be contained in tanks. I watched it, coincidentally, days before going. Turns it they live in tanks at the Oklahoma Aquarium! There Are hands on exhibits. Gorgeous set ups.
  • This is the perfect place to go with the family, everyone is so nice and there is so many different types of sea life. They have an area to feed turtles and sting ray. There is a underwater tube under the sharks, very easy way to see the shark life. They also have a stingray/shark petting area at specific times, and a starfish/crab/shrimp petting areas all around at all times. The gift shop is fully stocked.
  • Love love love!! We took our 2 year old daughter here, and it was an absolute blast! I think even on up to 8-10 year olds would enjoy it here. Great exhibits inside, a fantastic outdoor play structure as well, and a small cafe if you're staying through lunch. Highly recommend!
