The insectarium was fascinating however it is closed until summer 2021. I don’t know why it is not being renovated at a faster rate. The Biodome was to reopen end summer 2019 and now it is scheduled for Dec 2019. These are main tourist sites...More
Connected to the Botanical Gardens, this museum of insects is one of the best things to visit in Montreal. The instruction on the insects is comprehensive but by far the most interesting part is the atta ant colony. A little bit off the beaten track,...More
First of all, let's get this out of the way. Yes, this is an insect museum. Many reviews complain that this is mainly pinned insects.....YES, that's exactly what it is. And that is what I was hoping for. Sure, there are some displays of live...More
The best way to see this place is through the eyes of a child who loves insects, otherwise it is a pretty dull, but expensive place to visit. It is pretty hard to see the living insects. The displays make it awkward due to the...More
The Gardens were not crowded the day we visited, but the Insectarium was hot, jammed, and most of the exhibits were mounted. Lots of pretty specimens, but I would have rather seen more live insects. We had such a hard time getting around, that we...More
Took the Metro there, but note... it is another 10 minute walk to the ticket kiosk and another 5 minutes to the insectarium building itself. There are a lot of live insects and many preserved and mounted. If you don't stop to read each information...More

Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while
blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
