The Penguins were cool, but overall there wasn't much to be seen. The price of $55 for a family of 5 was good, but really it was not much of an attraction. We did enjoy walking around the grounds and checking out the Olympic pool, though!

Seemed expensive to get in so didn't but it was still an excellent walk around through the rest of the park. They have a cool display of photos around the world.

We really enjoyed our trip to the biodome. The setup was great, it was easy to explore and find our way around. There was lots of great information for the kids to read, everything was very informative and easy to understand. Most of the animals are fairly typical of what you'd see at decent sized zoos. The highlights were a... More

The biodome is quite nice to visit. However, we visited it during a weekday in the summer and it was extremely crowded with school children.

I was expecting to see more free roaming animals but they are enclosed. Except for birds you probably will not see an animal across your path. The polar section is simply a zoo and all animals are in a cage. It gets very busy in the afternoon go early to see the animal.

We went to biodome as part of a short family jaunt to Montreal. We got to see these amazing ecosystems that were created indoors. Ideally this is a great education for younger visitors. We would have loved to see the planetarium and botanical gardens too however our timing didn't allow for that. If you are interested in passes, send me... More

Visited 3 weeks ago and as it was a 2nd visit after many years I was not pleased of the quality of the Biodome. Not enough interactions or simply outdated. I still recommend a visit though for an unusual experience with nature.

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.
