Our little one (2.5 years old) had a blast. We went first thing in the morning and there was already a line up, so I would advise guests to go early. I also wish they had more animals; I know it's not supposed to be a zoo, but we were all jammed together to see ONE bird of a certain... More

I was honestly disappointed with the Biodome. I think its great how the place was re-purposed but I just didn't enjoy the experience. They had very few animals and half were out of sight, in their enclosures. I was left wishing we hadn't wasted the money for it.

While the biodome itself impressed my partner and I with it's scope, scale, and detail of environments, the whole experience ended up feeling rushed, busy, and tiring because of the VERY dense crowds.

Note that this is a review of the Biodome, which is over near the Olympic Stadium. There are animals here. If you are looking for a review of the Biosphere, that is at Parc Jean-Drapeau and that is an environmental museum (with no animals). I had read great things about this place, and it was good, but not fabulous. (I... More

Worth it, especially if you have younger children. However facility seems like its not well maintained and employees are rather rude. 2nd time I've been here (last was 2007). Protip: if you have a DSLR, having a 200mm+ would be perfect. Don't make the mistake i made and only bring a wide angle.

This was a pleasant way to spend a day and to return to the Olympic park after many years. For the price, I think it was well valued. Not a zoo, but a nice glimpse into the different ecological areas in the Americas. The sloth was extra slothy on our visit, so we were only able to see its head... More

It wasn't what I expected at all, I thought it would of been much bigger considering how it looks from the outside. If you have small children with you and just want something to do I will recommended it.

The Biodome is located at the Olympic Park. They offer secure garage parking for $16CA. I was surprised by the crowds because I read reviews that this place was deserted but we found that there were tons of people around. Admission was comparable to what we have paid at similar attractions in other cities. About $40 US for our family.... 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.
