Experience Biosphere 2


The University of Arizona Biosphere 2 welcomes all visitors and strives to make it's tours, exhibits and programs accessible to everyone. While much of the Biosphere 2 campus is wheelchair accessible, certain areas of the property are not accessible due the steep terrain and the presence of stairs. The majority of the biomes including the desert, savanna, ocean and rain forest are all accessible by wheelchair or scooter. Our team will work with you to help access the areas open to the public. If you have any questions, please email us at bio2-info@arizona.edu or call our admissions team at 520-621-4800.

Pets and Service Animals
