I am so glad they have closed it to renovate. The last time we were there with the family you could see how dated it was. Once it reopens I am sure it will be a place that we will frequent more often as the...More

The staff were attentive, and the whole place has some very thought provoking exhibitions. There also seemed plenty of things to keep both adults and kids amused for a couple of hours. Definitely make sure you watch the immersive film at the beginning.

We had some time to explore the bio dome, great experience as it covers the science behind the climate change and weather. Great views from the top.

We were totally disappointed with the activities and experience. The building itself is interesting but not much else. It is not worth the time getting there or the expense of entry.

Good morning Jetsboy. You visited the BIOSPHERE. The Biodôme is closed for renovations until September 2019. Could you please delete your rating? We thank you in advance.

My family loved this place, especially the penguins. This was our second visit and still loved it. Lots of parking, although not for free.

Definitely worth going to while you're in Montreal. Got the package to go to the tower, planetarium and biodome and really enjoyed all three.

Bummer that the Biodome is closed for such a long time and closed while we were in the area. I guess it gives us “something to save for the next visit”!
