Immerse yourself in numerous exhibits exploring humankind's relationship to the environment at Biosphere, housed in a geodesic dome designed by world-renowned architect Buckminster Fuller. The verdant island setting puts nature at the forefront as you explore exhibits on climate, meteorology, and sustainable development. Interactive displays create a fun and educational space for children and adults alike. The dome itself was originally part of Expo 67, the most successful World's Fair of the 20th century. This important piece of architectural history stands at 61 m (200 ft) tall, with a spherical diameter of 76 m (250 ft).

So we didn't actually do any research before showing up at this place and honestly it was a pleasant surprise. It is an interactive environmental museum where you are able to both learn and have fun! The multiple exhibits is super engaging, informative and just amazing! My favorite was the 360 movie room, that (I won't ruin the surprise) but made the 45 minute minute movie extremely fun for both children and adults. Next to that room was a place, where you can actually figure out whether you know your science! Bringing us all back to our high school days of looking through a microscope and matching the items from a list to the appropriate samples. This was definitely way more fun than I ever thought it would have been! Other cool exhibits of course is on the upper floors where you can step out onto the roof and experience the biosphere yourself. With the slight winter breeze it was a little chilly but honestly it was perfect! The leaves were just starting to turn colors and with the cool breeze, it made the scenery that much more beautiful!! Should definitely come here with ur date/spouse or even family!
This spa enclosure is massive. The 12 x 20 gives us a nice space. The quality is awesome and the packaging is really strong to protect it from incurring any damage. Everything arrived in perfect order and the manufacturer and carrier kept in touch with me for every detail to my satisfaction and delight. We checked every piece as we erected it. We only needed 2 helpers a couple of electric screwdrivers and a 6 foot ladder. We did this over a holiday weekend we were done Sunday afternoon overall pretty straight forward. Construction would have probably taken one day if we started early. We took our time as the weather was hot. Drink lots of water when you are working in the sun. Now all I have to do is relax in our new hot tub and enjoy the view.
