We went here on a cold day and it worked well. I like the totally enclosed tropical exhibit and the maple forest. At times it was not possible to see the larger animals. Where was the lynx? They had a nice eating area. I know...More

Its quite a cool setup. The dome is split into three different ecosystems. Outside of that, its quite small, and it doesn't take too long to see everything, even when it is extremely busy. If you have been to a zoo in any major city,...More

my daughter and 3 grandchildren and myself went for the day to the Biodome. Is a great place to take the children. The restaurant is pricey though.

Take your kids to see King Julien! I would not do this unless I had kids or they had an open bar, but I have a daughter and so off we went. It's only worth it with kids.

This really is a fun place to visit with family, with lots of different animal experiences. Even my cynical teenaged daughter enjoyed it (although she admitted it only half-heartedly)! :)

The Biodome itself is fine and so are the scenarios but the lack of animals and amount of people made a very very poor but expensive visit. Biodome should really consider how many people they let in at a time and also understand that seeing...More

As long as your intentions are benevolent, you will very likely be allowed to bring in a back pack.
