We went in November and it was freezing outside - the bio dome was great however. It was great to see all the birds and then a monkey jumps over your head from one tree to the next. My wife and I loved this attraction. Highly recommended. Parking is cheap outside the attraction

Love the 4 different ecosystems. Such a neat concept! Been about 5 times now and never disappointed the animals are well kept and appear really happy. Great leaning environment as well. Can get crazy busy with long long lines to get in on the weekends so best to try and sneak a weekday trip in if you can.

It was a rainy day, and having just arrived on the train from Ottawa, needed something to do with the 7 and 3 year old. This was a good option, although half of the city had the same idea. Luckily, the line moved quicker than expected. The kids liked it, but there are better zoos and aquariums out there. This... More

We went in with high hopes and were impressed with most of the exhibitions. My only complaint is that it was over so quickly (especially for that price)! If you are looking to make an afternoon of it, plan on adding some other nearby activities as well.

This attraction is very interesting, but even better with kids!! Depending on the day and time, it could be a bit annoying with some people stopping in the middle of the aisles to watch the animals, instead of moving out of the way.

We went on a Sunday at midday and it was not long queues at that time, when we left an hour later it was very busy at reception desk. Purchased ticket for Biodome and Botanic gardens for $33.50. Best Metro station for Biodome is the one AFTER Pi-IX, as it was badly signposted when walking to Biodome from Pi-IX. Habitats... More

If you visit Montreal I highly recommend you make time for Biodome. It is not large but the 5 ecosystems are well presented. You get to see animals in captivity in the respective ecosystems and they roam largely freely with natural boundaries. It is in effect an indoor zoo. I recommend it for adults whether or not with children. We... More

The location is a bit out of the way from Old Montreal, but is served by a Metro station. The animal exhibits are indoors. Really nothing exceptional, but a reasonable way to spend a couple of hours with kids. The show we saw was more of a interactive theater performance, about 20 min long, no animals (can't remember the name,... More

Went late in the day so not too crowded. 4-5:30pm was just about enough time to see everything. Even my teenagers liked it. However, we were a little disappointed at the last exhibit- the arctic. Was hoping to see more than penguins. Beaver exhibit was really cool with the camera of the dam interior while the beaver was inside working.... More

Being an animal over, we really enjoyed the Biodome. There were a lot of families there with strollers which made it a little hard to navigate, but we enjoyed it and saw many things we had never seen. Penguins, tropical birds, puffins, monkeys. allot of fun for kids of all ages.

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.
