Zoos are always part of my travel agenda and I while the Biodome its not a zoo (properly speaking), the visit was totally worth it. It is divided in to different regions of Canada and the variety of animals you can see its really impresive.

Both the children and us were impressed by the Biodome. It is very educational, showing different types of habitats with live animals, everything being indoors.

We got to the Biodome on a cold day and there was a huge line up. One of the staff came by and told us that we could buy our tickets online and then we could walk right in. We logged onto the free wifi, purchased our tickets and were looking at the sloth within 3 minutes. Don't waste precious... More

Went to the Biodome with my teenage daughter, loved it. Its like an indoor zoo with a variety of small animals and fish. The setup was well organized, lots of room for taking pictures and videos or just sitting back to observe. The underwater aquarium was a highlight as were the monkeys. Set aside 90-120 minutes to visit the area....longer... More

Very cool experience, to see all the different types of ecosystems one after the other. Felt like we were in a jungle at times. The birds are very vocal. Lots of different kinds of animals to see. Hasn't changed in 10 years but still fun to see.

We went to the biodome for a visit with our two year old son. We didn't bring a stroller as oir son enjoys walking around everywhere. They supply a stroller for families. This was very handy as were able to put our coats and bags there. The biodome was wonderful. There was so much to see. Our son loved to... More

After spending time in the nearby Botanical Gardens, took a short walk to the Biodome on the other side of the Olympic stadium. A fun 90 minutes walking thru the 4 different habitats. Enjoyed the birds a lot (especially the sea birds). The kids enjoyed trying to find animals who were somewhat hiding in trees.

Firstly, I would like to state that I've been to both Eden Project (UK) & Gardens by the bay (Singapore) which are both excellent and as biodomes, pretty difficult to top. The Montreal Biodome isn't huge or diverse, however what they do have is done well. Held within are 3 different climates so to speak, firstly there is a tropical... More

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood 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.
