Description:

The Oklahoma Aquarium is the state’s must-see attraction and a valuable educational resource for school groups and families. The Oklahoma Aquarium Education Department offers homeschool days, scout days and many other activities featuring a diverse collection of animals from the world’s oceans, lakes, rivers and streams. Come check out our newest exhibit, Sea Turtle Island, which houses 300-pound loggerhead sea turtles and Caribbean fish. The exhibit can be experienced from three viewing levels and an underwater observation station for children to come face-to-face with the turtles. The largest exhibit is the Siegfried Families Shark Adventure. Strolling through a unique tunnel and dome, you will see the largest bull sharks in an aquarium swimming all around and overhead. While the views are breathtaking, there are also immersive, hands-on opportunities, especially exciting for children. Crawl through the AEP-PSO Extreme Amazon and come face–to–face from under the water’s surface or explore the Kelp Forest and Discovery Caves. Feel the difference between slippery smooth stingrays and sandy sharks in safe touch tanks. Plus, feed stingrays and turtles for a truly interactive experience. The Aquarium is home to more than fins. Watch furry river otters and beavers splash and play in the Hayes Family Ozark Stream. A crashing waterfall and rolling stream with native fish round out the beautiful exhibit replicating a northeastern Oklahoma stream bank.
