Main entrance was a little hard to find because there are a few different buildings near the Biodome. Outdoor pay-for-parking available (be prepared to walk a little). I went on a Tuesday in December so the outdoor Botanical Garden was closed, but the indoor garden was still open. The lines went quickly and admission came with a map to navigate... More

Being a homeschooling Mom and embracing every opportunity to educate, the Biodome was a great opportunity to experience some of what we had recently learned. In recent weeks prior to our visit to Montreal, we had studied various biomes in our homeschool studies. Fortunately, the Biodome exampled several of those environments in their exhibits. If you have 2-3 hours while... More

The 1976 summer Olympic velodrome was repurposed as an indoor series of habitats for various animals. Birds, tamarind monkeys and capybaras grace the tropical habitat. Two Otters, elusive beavers, and a porcupine grace the St Lawrence habitat. There is a large aquarium where some will spend half an hour staring at the fish and diving birds. Some box jellyfish have... More

Probably more 3.5 stars, but not an option. It was like a nice zoo, but smaller and inside. The building and physical set up is quite fascinating to have 4 different environments right next to each other. Has a cafe. Lockers for coats. Tip: Botanical Gardens and Insectarium is an easy 15 min walk. Be aware is you have small... More

It is a nice place to see autoctons animals. However, I felt that the space they are having is quite limited.

This attraction was part of the MTL passport that I purchased through the Tourist Information Center (which by the way I got lots of use out of). I visited during a snowstorm and it was great. There were lots of families with young kids, so if you are looking for a quiet place to view animals, this is not it.... 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.
