It is a nice place to see autoctons animals. However, I felt that the space they are having is quite limited.

This attraction was part of the MTL passport that I purchased through the Tourist Information Center (which by the way I got lots of use out of). I visited during a snowstorm and it was great. There were lots of families with young kids, so if you are looking for a quiet place to view animals, this is not it.... More

Lots of fun travelling the different areas all under one roof. Very unique zoo and my wife and I were excited to see the Biodome and its different climates. I would imagine this is a great place for children young and old.

The Biodome at the Olympic Park is basically a unique indoor zoo. It has 4 habitats and 2 of them are cold weather ones. Uncommon zoo animals to be seen are sloths, lynx, puffin and various species of penguins.

We wanted to see the Olympic site, and this was a natural stop on a very cold Montreal weekday. As noted in a previous review: parking is FAR away (~500m walk at least) and expensive ($12, no hourly rates). Exhibits themselves are neat, up close but not intrusively close to many animals (exotic and domestic). We did wonder about the... More

Didn't have this high on my list of places to visit, but given that there was a snowstorm raging outside, we cut short our outside activities and opted for this instead. Great choice! Nice layout, the animals looked cared for and content, and it was interesting.

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.
