Fun times.

The Bio Dome was a fun time. They have 5 different environments. The penguin feeding seems to be the hit attraction. Great place to take you kids.

I was worried the Biodome might be aimed entirely at children, but we had a great time on our visit. The exhibits seemed to just keep going, we were pleasantly surprised at how extensive it was! The animal exhibits were amazing, and the idea that the animals were so close without any netting or cages was really a unique concept.... More

We were shocked when we pulled up to the garage and were charged $16 to park at this facility. That really seems excessive and did leave a bad taste for our visit. If it had not been pouring rain we would have turned around and found street parking and walked a block. So be forewarned. The exhibit is nice, it... More

Lots of fascinating animals, and the best part is how close you are to them! It feels like you're seeing them in the wild. We went in July and it was surprisingly uncrowded, there were a couple noisy school groups but nothing too bad. The only trouble was that there was construction going on outside and in the parking garage,... More

We went as a group of friends ( no kids) and loved it! The beaver dam was by far my favourite. When will you get another opportunity to look underwater at the beavers at work. I could have sat there all day and watched them. Very educational and fun!

Like a fantastic adventure in nature. So well done! Down to the details of real plants, we especially liked the St Lawrence estuary pavilion.

We visited the Biodome on the last day of March during Spring Break. Definitely came at a good time as there was not a rush on all the attractions. I mean, who spend Spring Break in freezing temperatures? We do and it was GREAT! It was still freezing outside when we entered the first biome and what a treat it... More

it's basically a zoo. Might be better for families with younger children. My daughter is 15 and, while we enjoyed it, for the cost we wished we had done something else. We bought the ticket which included the insectarium and the botanical gardens....not the smartest thing to do in the late winter/early spring. The botanical gardens really had nothing. But,... More

This is not one of the better observatories in Canada. Considering the very expensive entry fee, there is really not that many animals, birds, fish to look at. I think they are trying to be better than they really are. The lineup to get in was 30 minutes and they were not properly staffed as there were available cash registers.... More

Very engaging place to visit with kids, but if you can avoid being there on holidays it would be much better.

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.
