1. If line for tickets too long, you can get them in stadium beside Biodome where elevator to top of tower is. 2. Very crowded at sometimes and people have no respect for strollers or small children. 3. Entrance is to expensive for the amount of attractions.

The Biodome was great. A real treat for nature and animal lovers. You can get through this particular part of it within 30 - 40 minutes easy. Loved the architecture of the bldg. as well. Great for the kids.

We spent one afternoon here during a recent trip to Montreal. The Biodome de Montreal has over 4,500 animals from 250 different species and 500 plant species, all under one roof. The habitats were very well kept up. The penguin area was our favorite. The penguins swam right up to the window. The Biodome is one of four facilities operated... More

The Penguins are the highlight, did love the Otters too! Looked for the Sloths but could not find them. It was a busy place during the weeks of summer vacation.

We heard great things about this natural "history" museum, so decided to go on a rainy day. The great thing was it was easy to get to by the Metro. The bad thing is by the time we got there 11:30 on a summer week day the place was mobbed with children from camp programs and families. We had to... More

This isn't really a zoo, although it has similarities. As you walk through the Biodome, you progress through the 5 major climate areas of Canada, visiting a sample of smaller wildlife from each climate. Some climates are open areas, where birds fly overhead. Some have the animals in pools or behind glass. It is set up to be very child... More

We spend a great rainy day here. For me the best part was finally seeing the sloth. They were very elusive. Interesting for adults and children both. I live near Toronto, and we do not have anything comparable.

Visited here on Family Day Weekend and the lineup was over an hour long late in the afternoon. A couple of the exhibits were not open but still had a good time with the kids. Friendly informative staff were on hand to answer questions in some exhibits. others were not staffed. It may have been a good idea to come... More

Visited the Biodome with the whole family ranging from 8yrs old to 74 yr old. Very friendly and informative staff in each habitat. Experience animal feedings and lots of rest areas just to animal gaze. All indoors so great on rainy days. Very busy in the summer with long line ups at entrance. $15 Adult / $7 Chidren entry fee.

The kids loved exploring the different ecosystems and animals. Inside the biodome, they gave live monkeys, birds, butterflies, penguins along with different plants and flowers. It was very beautiful.

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.
