Biomes Marine Biology Center
The Biomes Marine Biology Center is New England’s only private marine education facility, and the largest aquarium in Rhode Island. 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.
Here’s a partial list of our hundreds of animals: fish, sharks, horseshoe crabs, spider crabs, octopus, skates, hermit crabs, tortoise, pond turtles, boa constrictor, frogs, starfish, sea urchins, lobsters, snapping turtle, and more fish!
Public walk-in hours 6 days/week
Story and craft times through-out the week
Please see website for details on any of our programs.
family features: Biomes is designed to educate children and adults of all ages about the wonders in our local oceans. Biomes provides a very hands-on experience as visitors are encouraged to touch, pet and pick-up many of the animals.
