Went through in about 90 minutes with our 2 year old daughter. She loved running around! My husband and I were expecting more.

“Take the family. Great place for kids.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is a very well presented attraction. It is worthy paying the fee to enter it. We purchased the family package for $86.00, providing also access to the Botanical Garden. At least visit the Bio. If the weather doesn't permitted, you can skip the Garden.

“Not Just Another Animal Exhibit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We have a great zoo at home but were pleasantly surprised by this. It's entirely indoors so smaller than most zoos. They have a bunch of live exhibits representing various habitats. Clean, well arranged, with good explanations in both French and English.

Brilliant facility. Much more than I expected to see. Great variety of flora and fauna, easy to get to on the metro.

“Great place to visit in Montreal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

This is definitely a Montreal must-do. Such a lovely outing for a family or even with friends or as a couple. Just a really interesting walk. 2hours would be the ideal amount of time to spend here.
