We visited the Biodome on a rainy April day to pass some time. Travelled via the metro which was cheap and easy. We booked tickets online which was better as the ticket queue was very long. The biodome takes you through four different ecosystems; Amazonian Rainforest, Canadian Maple Forest, 'Under the water Marine' section and the the 'cold, arctic' section.... More

We come to the biodome at least 4 times a year. It's a great way to spend a few hours, and there is always something interesting to see/learn about. We really enjoyed the sloth exhibit, our kids were obsessed.....

This was a unique experience on the Olympic complex. The parking was very pricey ($18 per spot). I also wish I would have purchased tickets in advance as the holiday weekend ticket line was insanely long (but fortunately, it didn't take too long to get through). The attraction itself was very unique. It felt like you were out in nature... More

There are some interesting animals and environments to see here, but be careful about coming on weekends. Easter Sunday we waited over 40 minutes to buy tickets. Any attraction like this should have kiosks to purchase tickets. They have only four windows open to sell tickets. One reason for the lines is that the transactions took so long as they... More

I really liked this place, because many different environments are displayed here, but especially for the penguins, I feel like the space was too small. All in all a good spot to visit on rainy days, however, it might be pretty packed then.

The biodome took us on a sensory exploration through climatic zones with their accompanying flora and fauna. It was a delight for myself as well as my toddler to see so many different species of animals and to experience weather from the tropical to artic regions. This is an excellent rainy day activity. If you packed lunch, there is a... More

The Biodome was a great stop. It was filled with interesting animals. The family really enjoyed it. Plus it was inside on a cold day. The only drawback is the school field trips and the kids running around.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
