We love Biomes! Exhibits are very hands on and staff is very knowledgable and friendly. The owner is wonderful and very passionate about what he does. He really takes the time out to talk to you. We have a family membership and it is well worth it! It's a great place to come and spend the afternoon. Never too crowded... More

This place has intrigued my friends and relatives of all ages. It is a low-key, carefully put-together experience. Great place!

We stopped here with my toddler on a whim. I had heard great things, and wasn't disappointed. There were a good number of activities and things to interest both my daughter and my husband and I. The touch tanks were well marked, so you knew where you could explore more and where you couldn't. The touch tanks were touch for... More

Great visit with little kids. Not a huge aquarium, but a local run aquarium with a nice family touch. Tina of fish, turtles, etc. Lots of touch tanks, and feedings every 1 / 2 hr. Nice little family outing. The staff was knowledgeable, and available.

Went to a birthday party here, and loved it so much that my son had his 6th birthday there last month. This is a wonderful, fun, educational experience for kids and adults!! The staff is very patient and knowledgable. I highly recommend a visit to Biomes!
