Always a pleasure

Wonderful place for young and old. Don't visit on a weekend since it can get very crowded and loud. Clean and well kept for animals and visitors.

It is small - since it was part of our MTL pass I wasn't disappointed but had I paid full price I would have been. The walk through the tropical section was the best and very unique.

Turning the old velodrome into a biodome seems like a great idea. Unfortunately, it was a better idea on paper than it is in practice. The result was a small museum with a shortage of animals and only four ecosystems (two of which could be found simply by going outside Montreal). We spent less than an hour walking through the...

I visited here with 52 14 year olds and I was just as excited or more excited than them. It's incredible to walk from habitat to habitat, rain forest, arctic etc. and see all of the animals living freely in the areas you walk through.

I enjoyed learning more about the different animals in different ecosystems. I took a lot of pictures and videos of animals in different backgrounds. The prices are a bit steep ($14.50 for students) and ($19.75 for adults). But i don't think I would come here again. Once is enough, as I found this place crowded and teeming with kids. Having...

My 10-year-old and I had a wonderful time here. We spent about two hours enjoying all the scenery and animals. The lynx cubs were adorable. This was a really unforgettable experience.

The humidity in the rainforest section took years off my life. Make sure to enter with a full bottle of water (not available on site) and a hand fan if you don't do well in serious hot humid environs. The remainder of the biodome exhibits were much better. But I had to recuperate in the air conditioned central connecting area... More

We purchased the combo tickets to the Biodome as part of our Botanical Gardens/Insectarium tickets. Our visit was late in the day on Saturday and there was no wait for us to get in. Visitors take a route through several climate zones from tropical to arctic and see plants and animals along the way. All the exhibits were nicely done.... 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.
