Travel baggage-free at the Biodôme! 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.

“Cute, amusing - very crowded”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Biodome is a great place to visit in Montreal during the Winter when the weather prevents most outdoor activities. We went on a Saturday so it was very crowded with families who tend not to pay attention to their children. Still, the exhibits were attractive and well-maintained.

“A wonderful visit.”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Great exhibits, the food was reasonable, and it was warm after a walk round the Botanical Gardens! You don't need long, a couple of hours, so buy a ticket for all 3 attractions: Gardens, Olympic Tower, and Biodome. We visited 2 and could have easily fitted in all three. Excellent metro service there too from city centre.

“Nice way to spend a couple hours”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Liked the place, but thought there were more animals. The penguins was our favorite part of the biodome, it's nice to be there at their feeding time. I wouldn't reccomend adding the garden and insectarium in the winter time, wasn't much to see, but then again we were on the go for days before everyday touring Montreal so all I wanted to do by that point was sit and rest my feet. But it's very informative and they have nice staff.

“Love this place”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

I love wildlife and animals so I totally enjoyed the biodome. It's a little pricy but totally worth it when you realize the maintenance they need to do to keek that place going. Would go back for sure, need to see
