Good for kids

It's a nice experience for kids. It was our second time with the kids and although once for the adults was sufficient the kids enjoyed it as much as the first time !

This is a great little eco-zoo. It has 4 different zones, each with their own climate. There are animals and zookeepers to talk to about each of the animals. It isn't huge and will only take about 2 hours to go through. It has a snack bar and a gift shop as well. Parking is $18 canadian and the Biodome... More

Go early before you get run over by huge waves of kids. It can get very noisy and busy, but overall it was good.

The Biodome is getting 3 stars because the animal habitats are excellent. However it lost 2 because of the discriminatory practice of charging more for admission for people who don't live in Quebec. No explanation given, and when I complained the clerk told me that I would need to submit a formal complaint and handed me a photocopied piece of... More

This is a must visit if you love science and are concerned about climate change. The Biodome is an interesting structure. Inside are several halls with exhibits illustrating effects of climate change.

No matter how many times I visit the biodome I look forward to going back again. It is one place I must always take my out-of town guests.

This attraction is great to bring your kids to keep them amused for a while. You could play 'spot the sloth' or 'where's the tamarin' because some of the animals are hard to find. There are different areas for different regions of the world and the otters and penguins love to play. It's not the cheapest as far as entry... More

This place is fun! I enjoyed the different ecosystems and some animals you probably don't get a chance to see at local zoos. Great place to go with kids and also engaging enough for older kids and adults to enjoy.

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.
