Travel baggage-free at the Biodome! Embark on an immersive, sensory journey through the ecosystems of the Americas. Listen to the sounds of the tropical rainforest, go in search of lynx in the Laurentian maple forest, dive into the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and give a wink and a nod to the penguins in the sub-polar regions.

I went with my two boys. 11 & 14 , we enjoyed our time seeing different sections of the biodome. However, i find more attractive to ages below that. The good thing that you can have a rapid tour with alot of scenes & different themes

Its a nice place to visit. you can spend half a day here if you really go slow and stretch it out. It is in the area close to the Olympic Park and the Botanical Gardens so get the all inclusive ticket and go to all three. there are animals in there natural environment and it is a great photo op. Clean restrooms and a gift shop right there. Plenty of staff to ask questions. Parking $10 at all locations so you will pay again when you go to the botanical garden parking lot.

I loved that you could walk around and you experienced the different climates for each region. You were one-on-one with the many animals that they had - I even saw an endangered bird in my country. The only thing is I was disappointed that the penguin area was under construction but I will definitely return the next time I visit! A must-see for animal enthusiasts!

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

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.
