The Biomes Center is New England's only private marine education facility and the largest aquarium in Rhode Island. We've been providing hands-on marine biology programs for schools and families since 1989.

We specialize in teaching children and adults about the marine animals of Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

Aquariumish. Lots of tanks, some of them are petting tanks. Play area for kids. We spent a few hours here before heading to the airport. I wouldn't go out of my way for this one. Kind of like a glorified pet smart without cats.

I love it here! It is great because you can pet the sharks and other sea creatures! The staff is informative and is great for kids!

Hands-on, smaller aquarium. Lots for kids to do. Multiple touch tanks, demonstrations, and a play area. Good for kids of all ages. Also, good for field trips and birthday parties. I only wish they opened in the morning.

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 place to bring the kids to see and learn a little bit about aquatic life
