It's a wonderful very kid friendly and hands-on "mini aquarium" facility where there's a demonstration or feeding every 30 minutes to keep all engaged! They take the time to answer all questions and provide educational information. It's a great place to spend the afternoon with family, kids and friends!

Great place to take the kids. There is a demonstration or feeding every half hour and many are interactive. The kids get to help feed the fish, horseshoe crabs, etc. Lots of touch tanks. I highly recommend. Would go back.

The birthday parties are well organized and they do an awesome job explaining the animals to the kids. You cant open presents here which is a tad inconvenient. Overall super easy and fun for the kids. Normal days arnt as organized and on super hot or rainy days it can be chaotic but it's still a favorite of ours

My son always wants to look at the fish when we go to Walmart so for his Birthday I figured I would look for an aquarium. I had never been to Biomes before and thought this would be a good introduction for him. I was right. He loved it. There were plenty of displays as well as activities. I would definitely recommend this aquarium.

What a fun place! It's small but it has so many different fish with lots of pet tanks Fun group activities and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. My three year old learned things as did I. Thanks for a great afternoon!
