I loved this place. I felt like I was in every climate the planet had to offer. It was so much fun! The animals were really cute and you could tell they are well cared for.

So let me start by saying that if you visit the Biodome - go early in the morning. I believe their site will tell you when the highest traffic goes through and the weekends are terribly busy of course. We hit this early on a...More

On a whim, we decided to check out the biodome. Inside, you venture through different habitats and experience the flora and fauna associated with each. They had penguins, monkeys, beavers, and even Atlantic Sturgeon. Plus many other animals. For the kids, there are rally points...More

The biodome was, essentially, a large greenhouse with some common animal attractions (fish in the St. Laurence River, ducks, raccoons, otters...). This would be an okay rainy day activity and if one has small children (a safe place for them to play). Adults and teens...More
