I loved looking at the different species of small animals and was amazed at the place. Great place to come with the kids and can easily spend half the day here. The rain forest and the artic parts were my favourite.

Love this place. The animals, the environment, it's just so cool. A great experience for all ages. It's not only educational but fun at the same time. Kids will love and parents will too!

You can pass over there a half of the day doesn't matter if it's rain or snow outside! It's an interesting attraction for a family or for only a couple! It has four big pavilions with four seasons.

We spent our morning here on a rainy day-what a great decision! Easy to get to from public trans. There are multiple sections that you walk through; each one unique and fun. The Laurentian Maple Forest was maybe my favorite! Each of the ecosystems of the Americas are represented.

If you're in Montreal for a few days with young kids, this is a great place to bring them. The exhibits are very well done, with lots of information panels scattered along the walkways. You can do the whole place in a few hours if you time your arrival right (with the different feeding times if you're interested in seeing... More

The biodome is a lovely thing to do when the weather does not allow you to enjoy the city otherwise. The part on the laurentides allows you to have a sneak peak in montréal's surrounding nature of you don't have the time to go there by yourself. We were very disappointed by the artic part though.

We visited the Biodome on a rainy day. Even though it is kind of out of the way of Montreal's main attractions, it is well worth the visit. My kids (ages 12 and 14) claim this to be one of their favorite museum in Canada.

I was really excited to come here after I had a great experience at the Dallas biome but unfortunately this biome is much smaller and really only has two different types of climate. Once I got out of the second (the canadian landscape/ wildlife) i was surprised that that was the end of the exhibition. it felt like a lot... More

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.
