This place is an excellent museum. I went a long time ago and liked it so we went back in July and once more enjoyed myself tremendously.

We got our tickets from the hotel concierge, which let us avoid a long long line to get in. Very crowded in the beginning, but then the crowds evened out and it was comfortable. Basically it's a large zoo, but nicer than any zoo I've visited, and a delightful variety of animals up close but safe from visitors. The penguins... More

Whilst on the Olympic Site we visited the Biodome. The prices are just about justified, but having started in the excellent steamy jungle section, the subsequent sections seemed less impressive until we reached the Penguins at the end of the tour. There were a number of areas that appeared to be work in progress and maybe the Park is gearing... More

I visited the biodome this past May with my students for a field trip. This was one of the events that we were looking forward to and it did not disappoint. The various ecosystems in one building was great: to be in a humid/hot tropic climate one minute to a cool boreal ecosystem the next. Add the animals and you... More

It's not the nicest or largest around the world but it's a very nice enjoyable tour of marine life and some specific to Canada and the St-Laurent river. The building (the Olympic stadium) is a must see

The Botanical Gardens offer a wonderful pavilion filled with butterflies in springtime . You can walk around and see them land on flowers and almost touch them

I bought a package 2 for Biodome, Planetarium, and Botanical Garden. The Biodomeis situated next to the Olympic Stadium, and both buildings are uniquely beautiful. I saw some rare animals including Scarlet Ibis, a playful Otter, penguins, a giant lobster, Sturgeons, and more.

The Biodôme provides great entertainment opportunities for kids, it's not too long, has lots of game options and is fun to do. A must a bit off-center but still interesting.

I have family living in Canada. During four years they lived at Montreal and we went to Biodome all times we visited them. It's worth it. It shows four parts of the world as tropical forests and Antarctica place.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighborhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighborhood 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.
