This is a truly enjoyable place to visit with a wide range of exhibits and wildlife to experience. Whether searching for a blue eyed sloth, or watching the Penguins diving and swimming, one will find great entertainment. I particularly enjoyed the special, and fun, poop display. A naturalist shared her wisdom, with humour, about how an animal's excrement tells so... More

There are thousands of animals in native habitats. Visitors will see everything from bats, numerous varieties of fish, lynx's, otters, penguins, etc. The Biodome makes... More

I love this place. It really is one of a kind on the Island. You get to see live exotic animals in their natural habitat in one open environment and Canadian animals in another. They have some fish too. I strongly suggest getting the multi pass including the Insectarium and the Botanical Gardens across the street. The Biodome is housed... More

Admission is under $20.00. To see everything allow about 2 hours. Very close to Metro (Subway) station. Any exhibits are close together so you have minimal walking between sites.

The Biodome was really the highlight of our day today. It was really worth the trip! You learn a lot of things about the ecosystems of the Americas. It is really a MUST-SEE when you are in Montreal! It is open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, and closed on Mondays.

I am a huge animal lover and was looking forward to seeing the Biodome, which I had heard re-created the natural ecosystems inhabited by the animals housed there. I was at first fascinated by the rain forest climate, which is hot and humid and home to a few monkeys that were adorable and fun to watch. When I got to... More

Being a tourist from the U.S I didn't really know what to expect - and was nicely surprised - came on a weekend, but did not find it uncomfortably crowded, spent about 2 1/2 hours here walking through the zones. Very clean and well laid out - don't miss the Polar Experience! We took the metro from Downtown and got... More

The biodome was a very interesting experience. It was cool seeing the animals in the different environments. For the price it was fairly worth it. We were told it would take 1.5 - 2.0 hrs but we went through fairly quick less than an hour. So don't expect this place to be a big time waster (well maybe if you... More

When our plans for another activity fell through, I asked my 12 year old daughter if she wanted to do something else. She told me that she had never been to the Biodome and we thought it was well time she went! Though some of the animals were not very active (namely the lynx and the sloths but to be... 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.
