Beautiful and well structured attraction filled with animals in environments built to mimic their natural habitats. Brightly colored birds and monkey, industrious beavers, sleek lynx and graceful fish and other sea creatures will delight children and adults alike, probably the best penguin exhibit I have seen anywhere. Interactive kiosks offer lessons in science and biology in English and French. Great... More

Biodome is one of the must visit tourist attractions if you're in Montreal, Canada. The Biodome is so pretty and very educational. It is part of the bigger Parc Olympique and you get to see a lot of history. Beautiful place. I believe if you go during the summer, the observatory will re-open and you'll get to see a better...

We were surprised at how much we liked the Biodome. We spent nearly 15 minutes (along with 30 other people) watching a beaver take down a tree, and swim it to his dam. We also spent time in the rain-forest. The Biodome is in the same complex as the Planetarium, the Montreal Tower, and the Olympic Stadium. You get discounted... More

With birds flying overhead all you would need is David Attenborough to pop out from behind a try to complete your experience! Going on through other slightly colder areas ,passing two very cute and active otters to a... More

Was fun to return to what was the velodrome during the Olympics in 1976. Great use of a huge space. Displays were well constructed and allows visitors to observe animals in their habitats. Penguins were amazing!

The Biodome has several ecosystems simulated under one roof, allowing you to see various animals from subtropical to arctic regions. I thought it was a pretty cool place with lots of interesting facts about the animals living there. Fun no matter what age you are.

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.
