A great day with children of all ages. Lots of interactive displays, and the animals were amazing! Clean, lots of restrooms, and places to sit and watch. We will definitely return on our next trip to Montreal.

The biodome is kind of like a zoo but where the animals are divided up into different habitats and environments that you walk through. I went on my own and wasn't all that impressed as there weren't that many animals to see and would have rather gone to a real zoo. I'm sure if you have kids they would love... More

Second visit after 10 years. No real surprises anymore but it is still very fun. This is the perfect entertainment for kids. And very educative as well. Everybody loves the penguins but my favourite are the giant Sturgeons. So large and so impressive. Friendly and knowledgeable staff all over the biodome as well.

The biodome is an interesting building reached by metro from Pie IX and a short walk. Ingesting inside with several animals. Favourites were the monkeys. Shame that the polar region wasn't cold!!

We almost didn't visit here after I read some poor reviews but my wife insisted and we were glad we did, the displays are excellent, it's a real treat to see the exotic animals, including scarlet macaws, beavers, playful otters, tiny monkeys and even a baby sloth & many more. Thoroughly recommended !

You can see animals from south to north! Parking fee is extra, but there are many other activities to visit nearby.

If you are a big city in the far north, and a traditional zoo is not a feasible idea - this like the Insectarium is a brilliant attraction idea. It should take you the better part of a day. And the adjascent stadium is an interesting building too.

The Biodome is unique and intriguing, a place were you change of ecosystem 5 times during your visit. There, you will encounter many species that you find in our forests and nature, plus other great animals from many countries of the south. And don't forget the pingouins... A very good activity for families and those who love animals. A must... More

Situated in the Olympic complex and easily accessible by underground, the site us worth a visit for the Olympic stuff alone. The Biodome was very busy but we all flowed through steadily. There were not as many animals to be seen as I imagined - except for fish, which is the best bit. Fine for young children. Not a bad... More

A fantastic use of a former Olympic pavilion! Visitors can actually walk through different ecosystems, with all the sights, sounds, smells, climate, flora and fauna unique to each. I felt as though I was in the space pods of Bruce Dern's 1970's classic "Silent Running". The entire family loved it!

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.
