Animals and Plants in their habitat

An interesting visit, though a bit confusing in the signage that gets you from one section to another.

The birds, fish & animals are incredible! All are in the Eco-system of their natural habitat. Like a combination zoo & gardens. Great for families!

We visited the Biodome for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised on how diverse the attractions were. We did not get a chance to see everything but we did get time to see the animals. This was the main reason for visiting. I plan to return again and spend more time and money.

I'm not specifically into zoo's, aquariums, nor greenhouses, but when you put the 3 together it makes a really interesting couple of hours. Where else can you see penguins, sloths, and giant fish in the same place?

Visited today on a very rainy day in Montreal with a 10 year old and a 14 year old. Both loved it as did mum and dad - very interesting mix of plants and animals. We especially liked the otters and the virtual reality polar experience - now have photo of family with polar bear true ! Id suggest a... More

In the biodome is 4 ecosystems you can visit for $20. Disappointed I wasn't able to see the sloths but apparently there are 6 in the rainforest that you can see. We did see many birds , crocodiles, monkeys, turtles, raccoons, lynx, fish, starfish, sharks, penguins, puffins, beavers, otters, parrots, ducks, and many plants.

If you love nature and wildlife you must go. The different habitats are "real" for each section... Cold where pinguins are hot and humid where the tiny adorable orange monkey is etc. Plenty to see. I just love this place. Been 5 times already and ill go again. When we visit montreal for pleasure... I make a stop at biodome.

OK, I'm a sucker for animals. The Biodome houses 4 separate climates, each with their residents in full view. (OK, maybe not the beaver, who likes to hide from the crowds.) Especially fascinating is the 2 level ocean environment, which allows viewing fish and other sea creatures underwater behind a very generous glass wall. And if you have kids, if... More

While it is interesting to see animals & the biodiversity of the country under one roof, it is a pricey outing. If you only had to pick one thing to see in this part of Montreal, as an adult visitor, I'd pick the botanical gardens over this. But if I had kids, then I think the Biodome would be of... More

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.
