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 field trip programs, homeschool days, scout days and many other activities featuring a diverse collection of animals from the world’s oceans, lakes, rivers and streams seen in 100 exhibits. The most stunning tank is the Siegfried Families Shark Adventure featuring the Cox Communications Shark View Room. Strolling through a unique tunnel and dome, you will see the largest bull sharks in captivity swimming all around and overhead. While the viewing is 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. 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, beavers and raccoons 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. You’ll want to come back often for ever-changing programs and exhibits and sea turtles coming soon!
