Owner description: Travel baggage-free at the Montreal Space for Life. Embark on an immersive, sensory journey through the ecosystems of the Americas at the Biodome. Listen to the sounds of the tropical rainforest, go in search of lynx in the Laurentian maple forest, dive into the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and give a wink and a nod to the penguins in the sub-polar regions. Listen as our nature interpreters let you in on the secrets this fascinating biodiversity holds. An oasis in the heart of the city, the Montreal Biodome recreates some of the most beautiful ecosystems of the Americas which allows plans and animals to live as in their natural habitats.A unique experience of nature and fun !

“Ridiculous pricing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We got the family package that included the Biodome, Botanical Gardens, the Planetarium, and the funiculaire up the outside of the Olympic Stadium. Tickets are good for up to 30 days.

The pricing is ridiculously stupid. They certainly don't encourage visitors from outside of the province. If you can produce a Quebec health card or driver's licence, the family price is $160. If you come from another province, the price is a whopping $215!

The gardens were beautiful. We probably didn't see half of it because we were trying to do all 4 activities in one day. The Biodome didn't take long to go through. It can be done in under an hour. The planetarium was fascinating. There are two shows. The first is a more artistic show, and the second very educational. They should be presented in the reverse order though. The first would have been better understood if we had seen it last.

“Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I really didn't know what to expect when we bought our tickets for this. we combined our ticket with the Olympic Tower. It was really a nice attraction. I enjoyed walking through the various environments and seeing the plants and animals in a more natural setting.

“Great Family Activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

My family loved the Biodome. We loved seeing all the animals in their habitats. The penguins swimming at the end were a big hit at the end for my little ones. Don't miss the Insectorium behind it...it's worth the extra admission.

“Ok- not amazing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Suprized how small it was- and get tickets ahead, or use your smartphone to purchase on the website- we skipped the looong line by getting tickets on the web- saved about an hour wait.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Visited the Biodome before going to the Bonticial Garden. Wish we had skipped this and spent more time in the Garden.
