Very nice place. We only visited the biodome building and even though here weren't that many animals, it still impressed us. Well organized and relatively big

We went on a rainy day and had a wonderful time. Everything is indoors so it's not weather dependent. Excellent for children and adults. It only takes a few hours to get through. They do have a few cafeteria-type spots for lunch which I found delicious. Great sandwich options. Very enjoyable day. You can also opt to upgrade your pass... More

A mini zoo using four indoor themed areas... tropical, maple forest, Quebec coast (my favourite) & sub-polar. If you like animals (& are okay with captivity), you will enjoy. My favourite animals were the otters. Great for kids. Handicap accessible. Not expensive. Good value.

Arrived around noon, along with many others who had a similar rainy day plan! It took about 15 minutes before we were able to park, but indoor parking and close proximity to the venue were pluses. Stayed about 21/2 hours, and was not feeling rushed. Enjoyed the exhibits - it was great when the staff came out to feed the... More

We wanted to go to the museum with in the biodome, but it was closed. But if you walk along the pier in the old city, you get a good view! We didn't have time to go to the actual area and walk around.

The place is a bit small and you have seen everything after 1 or 2 hours, but it is really nice. The animals are easy to spot (except the sloth) and there are no signs of depression among them (a guide has explained it to me). There are not many mammals, but tons of birds and marine animals. The animals... More

This is the site of the 1976 Summer Olympics. It is a collection of buildings, one being the biodome. It is a indoor zoo with a variety of animals and habitats. Another building at the site is the Science Center.

Highly recommended. Pricey, but we redeemed air miles for our tickets (not the best use of air miles, but free nonetheless!). The kids had a great day, and so did we. They have really re-created the rain forest - very humid. And the different birds in each spot flying overhead are great to see. The staff is helpful, guiding the... More

The Biodôme is great! It's affordable and interesting for young kids. there is also an interactive section in the basement that my kids really enjoyed! It's next the the big O and the planetarium. You can even pack a lunch and bring it along with you. They have lockers where you can stash your lunch until you are ready to... More

The Biodome in Montreal is a combination of a zoo and an aquarium. There are 5 ecosystems throughout the dome, each one containing different species. My favorite was the sub polar region which contained the Penguins. The Tropical Rainforest is also pretty amazing. Visit their website to learn more about their ecosystems and animals they house. You can take your... More

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.
