Go in the summer after 6pm, it's free! Maybe you'll miss out on the Japanese Garden, but almost everything else is open and worth the visit.

We spent several hours exploring the gardens on a guided tour, and finished this with a happy and amazed hour in the Insectarium. We were there in October with single digit temperatures - warm gloves and tuque a must!

Walking through the Montreal Botanical Gardens is a great way to spend an afternoon. Large variety of trees and plants. I even saw a black squirrel.

In October a wonderful cooperation between Sister cities, Montreal and Shanghai offer tourists and locals eye popping floral and lantern exhibits that take at least two hours to explore and enjoy!
