Nice option for the kids. The Biodome shows all types of natural. Once you reach the tropical area you really feel the humidity of the rainforest. You can see all types of animals.

This pavilion from the Expo ‘67 has turned into a very interesting space for environment questions. It covers the pollution, climate change and renewal energies. Very interesting for the children.

After finding free street parking about three blocks away we arrived at the biodome to find it closed for renovations. The Olympic stadium and plaza is next door so we locked at that instead.

The dome is huge and quite impressive. The museum inside it will allow you to go up to the middle of the dome. View from there was pretty. Museum usually charges 15$CAD but when I went, it was Museum Day and was free.

It always has something new and improved. The insectarium is interesting for all the ages. All the special events are excellent: Butterflies being released, lanterns, pumpkins, Dragon dance and many others.

Interesting museum to learn about ways to protect the planet and how nature works. Love the architecture of the buildings. The museum brings nature to life indoors. Worth a visit if you are spending a few days in Montreal. The yellow Metro line goes right...More

Great facility with well thought out exhibits and great animals. The cafe however is not good. They attempted to be too eco-friendly and did not have water the day we were there.

Wonderful experience. Wonderful to experience all four seasons and see animals in their habitat. Loved the pingouins. Kids absolutely loved it. And me too.
