Field Trips

Looking for a field trip opportunity that is truly educational, unique, and protected from Oklahoma’s unpredictable weather?  Oklahoma Aquarium programs are designed to get your students excited about marine animals, aquatic science, and the environment.


An Aquarium educator explains why a starfish is not really a fish. 


We are thrilled to announce that due to a generous grant from The Boeing Company, the Aquarium will be offering new technology based upgrades for field trips coming soon!
