The Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks, Oklahoma, just under 20 minutes from Tulsa, offers families a chance to explore and learn about sea creatures of all sizes. From stingrays to sea turtles to sharks and more, the aquarium works to educate visitors while they have fun. The walk-through shark tunnel is a must-see, and families are encouraged to attend the aquarium on days that it hosts one of its many events and special activities, such as Behind-the-Scenes Shark Feed Tours, Sleep With the Sharks overnight events, Pirate Day, Mermaid Day and more. Many are offered on a monthly basis. Additional fees may apply.
The Oklahoma Aquarium is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and until 9 p.m. on Tuesdays. It is closed on Christmas Day. Admission is per person, and children ages 2 and under are free. Same-day exit and re-entry is allowed when guests get their hands stamped.
