The biodome intends to portray an environment where animals can be displayed in their natural habitat. However, the venue had very few animals when we visited. We were very disappointed.

It was closed on Thanksgiving so we only had a chance to drive by. Still loved it and would recommend to visit.

We had time before we left, so we decided to visit. It is on an island so you need to go over a bridge to get there when driving. I think it's a neat structure with a very informative exhibit about Canada outside. We did...More

It wasn't originally part of my plan to drop in but I'm glad I did. The exhibits are informational and interactive (a bit geared towards kids and families but I still had fun). My favorite part was the 4th floor (it's gorgeous)! I happened to...More

the museum is good and as adults we enjoyed it. I think kids would really like it too. But the real reason to go is the enervation deck. Basically you get to stand on a huge platform int he middle of the dome. Great views...More

Overall the content of this place seemed a bit disjointed. As you worked your way around some things grabbed your attention but others were dry or superficial. The interactive experimental lab could have been interesting but after a very long wait to move on we...More

pay attention when you cross the bridge, otherwise you will easily miss the entrance. If you don't have time to walk around, at lease take some picture(s). it is worth to go and won't take you too long, limited pay parking

This is the only environment museum in North America and is operated by Environment Canada. The content inside is well done, although it's mostly reading based and no real hands-on exhibits. I hope to see more exhibits added soon. The most interesting part of the...More

Part of the exhibit consists in viewing a 360˚ show. Very nicely done! It summarizes the issues very well.

The structure itself was the most interesting thing. The view from the top was pretty cool, but I was left thinking I should have gone to the Olympic Park instead...

Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together
make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The
mostly man-made grounds were built to be the site of
the 1967 World's Fair, and the chiefly car-free space
still retains its inherited carnival character. A
wonderland of foliage and flora awaits at the Jardins
des Floralies, with its expanse of pond-marked
wetlands making it perfect for hiking, nature walks,
