    Very friendly tour guide with an amazing experience. It's really worth it to visit and learn about the ecosystem we live in. Check out the falaj (water system donated by the Sultan of Oman) at the end...  more »

    Biosphere 2 was by the billionaire Edward bass for ca $ 200 million$ built with the aim of an ecosystem independent of the outside world to create. the two trials had to be terminated unsuccessfully. A visit to the plant is worthwhile in any case, is very special but the entire. The offered guided tours are subject to more or less interesting from the respective Guide.

    Very interesting place. Specific from bio-zoo point of a view. Guides are very friendly and knowledgeable .This facility at the time was researching whole planet/human kind level field and was secret. Kids friendly, wheelchair/disabled access to majority of buildings.Souvenier shop with friendly prices. When my other little one will get a bit older, will visit this place again. Plan on spending 3-6 hours at least, very interesting for kids and any adult.

    What an awesome educational experience! To think that 8 people agreed to being literally locked into this grand experiment for 2 years is amazing. The guided tour is exceptional! Highly recommend

    A fantastic tour guide. He had extended knowledge of why this program started and where it is now going and the purposes. Very interesting. Our granddaughters loved much about it and still talk about the wind tunnel.

    What an amazing place to visit. I can't believe the amount of time and money that went to an experiment. It was very interesting. I loved it.

    Biosphere 2 presented me with a beautiful and ingenious look at how the biosphere acts, but in a much smaller scale that is controllable. Everything about it is interesting and is explained, from how it came about to how it works and problems encountered. It was a very educational trip and I would definitely recommend going to anyone interested.
