  • Attended the Biomes with a medium sized group as a special activity. It was a re-visit for us. It was a hit. A self-guided educational experience. A tiny bit pricey for its smallish size and the amoun...  more »

  • Very nice aquarium!! Has a large variety of fish that I had never seen before! Went with my grandparents and it is a great way to spend a few hours! It looks a little small on the outside but once you go in you will see a lot of marine life!! Would give 5 stars but it's only open for like 4-5 hours a day. I recommend you go to Biomes because you will have an awesome time!
  • Great fun for all ages! They even allow children to assist in feeding times!
  • this aquarium looks small from outside, but they have nice aquarium tanks with little sharks, sting rays, crustaceans all that you could touch. well organized and maintained. tons of varieties of different fish to see probably over 100 tanks at least. there are large turtles, striped bass, crab, sea robins and too many things to list here. fun place for kids and a little gift shop too. i like going here with my kids
  • This place is amazing! I had attended a couple kids' birthday parties there(which were great) and decided to buy an annual membership. We've probably been there 2 dozen times this year already. You can spend a couple hours there or just drop in for 30 minutes on a rainy day. The kids never get tired of it. The collection of sea life is really amazing and the staff obviously has a love of education as well as the local environment. There are regular demonstrations and everything is very hands-on. My 2 year old loves it as much as my 6 year old. I'd say it's a great fit for any age. They also have a large section set up with crafts and other activities including an enclosed area for the younger kids. I cannot recommend this place enough. The regular pricing is reasonable and the membership is a steal!
  • After having the impression that this was an aquarium, & pulling up to seeing it quite smaller than I imagined.. I'm not gonna lie, I was a bit sceptical, but all that changed when I walked in the door. This is a great place to stop by and do something fun with the kids for an hour or two but still have the day. The whole place is super hands on and that alone sold me, my girls loved it. The staff is really friendly and well educated. They have a small section for kids to play in, & it seems as if they might have summer classes or something of the sort there. They also have a cute little gift shop area with decently priced little Nick nacks and handmade items. I will definitely be taking my family back.
