Along with the Biodome (closed for renovations until summer 2019) , the Insectarium and the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, the Botanical Garden is part of the Montreal Space for Life, Canada's largest natural museum science complex and Montreal's top...more
Spent the whole morning walking through the gardens. Places to sit if tired. Very pretty Chinese garden area. The insectarium was interesting. Bugs and butterflies from all over the world. Overall a nice attraction.
We only had a couple of hours to tour the garden after a long day of walking around the city but this was well worth every minute we spent there. We spent most of the time in the Rose, Chinese, and Japanese Gardens. The photos...More
We visited both the Botanical Gardens and the Insectarium, as they are both on the same property and most people buy admission for both as a package deal.
The insectarium was interesting... relatively small compared to the nearby Biodome, but it didn't need to be...More
Visited Montreal for the long weekend with my wife and decided to visit the Chinese Lantern Festival within the Gardens. The downsides are that this is not the time of year to visit the Gardens and expect lots of color (we knew that going in)....More
Last year we were too late for the garden – arriving from Phoenix in November. This year we were there in mid-September which was a bit late for the full glory of the roses but excellent timing for the special Lantern display in the Chinese...More
This was definitely our favorite part of the botanical gardens, with the beautiful architecture, vivid blue water, interesting landscape, and wonderful plants and waterfalls. If you go to the botanical gardens and won't have enough time to see everything, skip the Arboretum and go straight...More
Wow, this place was amazing! So many different gardens/forests/paths/
etc! It was absolutely beautiful! Our favorite part had to be the Chinese garden, because of the wonderfully designed buildings, ponds, and waterfalls. We also loved the Roserie and the Japanese garden. Everything was beautiful, so...More
My wife and I visited the Montreal Botanical Gardens in late June 2008 and enjoyed the experience thoroughly! Top three experiences: 1) Chinese Garden, 2) Alpine Garden, & 3) exhibition garden. We've yet to visit a botanical garden that was better than this. The restaurant...More
A beautiful layout and well groomed plots is what you will find when you visit the Botanical Gardens. One of the largest gardens in the world, it is truly a spectacular sight! I especially recommend the rose garden, Chinese Garden and the area surrounding the...More
Hello Fellow Travellers
We were lucky enough to be visiting Montreal Quebec when the Botanical Gardens were hosting the "Chinese Lantern Light Show". What a delightful experience it was. The show was held in the latter half of October, 2007.
The evening that we went...More
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while
blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
