An oasis of greenery in the heart of a big city, Biodome de Montreal allows you to journey through the varied ecosystems of the Americas. Originally erected as one of the venues for the 1976 Olympic Games, the building now features exhibits showcasing the natural world of North and South America, including rainforests, subpolar islands, and the Atlantic oceanfront. Five different ecosystems within the biodome support thousands of plant and animal species, including reptiles, birds, mammals, and amphibians. Explore the various sections with ease on a self-guided audio tour. Special audio guides for children are available. Closed for renovations until summer 2019. Put Biodome de Montreal into our Montreal driving holiday planning site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Montreal.

Great visit for families. You can see puffins, penguins, monkeys, and much more for reasonable admissions prices. Easy to access by taking the metro on the green line, and great if you also want to...

Visited the Biodome for the first time and it was a fantastic experience. It was such a great time looking at different animals. They are so adorable. The space is very well structured and there is a lot of walking involved so be prepared. Some sections are way hotter as the temperatures are maintained such for the animals. So its a challenge to walk around with heavy winter jackets. My most favourite were the Penguins & Otters! A must-visit with family & friends!
Amazing experience. Lots to see and totally worth it. We loved the penguins the most and went at feeding time which was interesting to see. The Lynx and otters were close seconds. The app didn’t seem to do much for me and wasn’t worth the download unless you want to learn more about the animals. I was very hot throughout most of the visit, unclear if because of temps inside for the animals or because there were a lot of people, or both. Would recommend dressing light. I liked how open it was.
Took our 3&5 year old grand kids. We all had a great time. The planetarium was great too(youngest had a great nap while we enjoyed the show). What a great way to reuse the Olympic sites. We look forward to another trip when we have time to visit the insect, butterfly, and Biosphere sites that are part of the full Life Science package. (Traffic in the area is a challenge it seems all day so prepare for that)
This place is perfect for families with kids. The animals are amazing, the territory is clean, well maintained, and organized. You get a special brochure with the description of the animals in each section. The building is not too big for the kids to get tired. The nice bonus was the cafeteria. There are tables where you can eat your own food. There are even microwaves that can be used by the visitors. This place is really kids and family friendly! Make sure you buy the tickets in advance.
A fun place for people of all ages to visit! The animals are a delight to see and the exhibits are beautiful all year round! For those with children who require a changing station, beware that you may have to go a bit out of your way just to find one as not all restrooms have a changing station. The food court only serves vegetarian and vegan foodstuffs. As one who is not usually the biggest fan of these kinds of food, I found them quite tasty and would definitely recommend them.
