Oklahoma Aquarium

The Aquarium, located along the bank of the Arkansas River in Jenks, features 200 exhibits, including a 400,000-gallon shark tank. The facility also showcases many of Oklahoma's native fish species.

To complement its recreational appeal, the Aquarium also has five "wet labs" where students can conduct freshwater and marine experiments. As a whole, the facility functions as a learning laboratory for students of all ages. Along with a wide array of natural exhibits, the Aquarium will offer plenty of thrills, including a shark viewing dome that puts visitors within inches of these majestic fish.

The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s Tulsa-area offices are located at the Aquarium complex.

“We encourage everyone who comes by the Aquarium to stop in and see us,” said Colin Berg, education supervisor for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. “Visitors can stop in and pick up a Hunting Guide, buy a fishing license or find out about other Department services.”

Oklahoma Aquarium offers discounts for hunters and anglers

It pays to be a hunter or angler - at least it does at the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks.

Hunters and anglers who show their Oklahoma hunting or fishing license at the Aquarium will receive $2 off the regular admission price every Tuesday through the end of the year.
