The Oklahoma Aquarium is a nonprofit marine museum on the Arkansas River featuring more than 100 exhibits and thousands of animals. Exhibits range from some of the aquatic life found in Oklahoma to “Marvels and Mysteries” with jellyfish, electric eels and piranhas. The aquarium houses one of the most impressive shark collections in the world, where guests enter a walk-through tunnel and dome beneath the largest bull sharks in captivity. Touch tanks in the “EcoZone and Coral Reef” allow guests to feed and pet stingrays. A recently completed sea turtle exhibit will open soon. Across seven exhibits, the Oklahoma Aquarium allows guests a glimpse of the life hidden in our world’s oceans, rivers, lakes and streams.
The aquarium is open 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Sunday, and is stays until 9:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. The museum is closed on Christmas Day. For more information, please call (918) 296-FISH.
