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.

“Adventure in nature.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

In the Biodome one can take a leisurely walk and experience the excitement of being in different places far away. One can breath the warm humid air and watch the wild vegetation and a few of the animals of one continent then walk a few more steps and walk into another environment in a different continent. This amazing walk through wonderland takes you a lake with a clear view what is happening to the wildlife underwater as well as the "far away" tree lines. One of the highlights is the Arctic continent with the ice water and penguins. For nature lovers, it is a must see in Montreal.

“Good for Families - Not area specific”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

It was a day for us to venture out and we actually went to see the Olympic Park. It was closed for renovation or work, which was disappointing. We had gone quite a ways, so we saw the adjacent BIODOME. It was interesting, but we would not have ventured to this area for just it. Lots of screaming and crying kids. Interesting because we like history and nature, but remedial.

“Great for the young & old”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I live in the Montreal area and have been to the Biodome several times over the years. It's always so much fun and a great way to spend an afternoon as there is something for everyone. A must-see if you're visiting the city.
