A visit to the Biodome was so worth it! The different environments that they were able to replicate inside of the Biodome are amazing! We were incredibly impressed and it was a nice warm escape from the winter day outside! I would highly recommend this to adults, children, families, etc. - anyone would thoroughly enjoy it! We took the Metro... More

We had an amazing time at the Biodome! The exhibits are set up as 4 different global regions (rainforest, temperate forest, coastal sea and sub polar regions) and feature a wide range of creatures in open settings. We had many opportunities to catch great photos of these animals. Each exhibit has multiple large viewing areas, with glass panes and steps... More

It was an awesome experience. The tropical rainforest was really amazing. Felt as though I was in the tropics back at home.

Great for children, but the wild mammals were bored and didn't have enough space. Parrots are highly social birds; several were the only ones of their kind. The penguins are a big draw.

Our family - including two tween girls - travelled to Montreal for the Women's World Cup in June 2015. We visited the Biodome and other area attractions while there. The Biodome is part of a larger exhibit called Space for Life, which includes the Botanical Gardens, the Planetarium, and the Insectarium. We visited all but the Insectarium. The Biodome was...

We visited the Biodome this past January and really enjoyed it. First, it was great to be in the warmth indoors. Second, we love to watch animals. The layout here is very easy to follow. We checked our coats at the coat check downstairs for $2 per coat. We were told it would be cold inside and were advised to... More

Kids loved to visit here. Near by station. Great place to learn and explore especially unique fossil from Quebec. Penguins were great to watch! Check the time to feed penguins.

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.
