Where are we going today?

The Biodome is so beloved that if you mention you're thinking of going aloud while riding the Metro, more than one friendly local is apt to tell you how fantastic it is. Part zoo, part aquarium, part research facility, the Biodome presents four ecosystems that you walk through on a paved path. Spot golden lion tamarin and capybara in the tropical forest; beaver, porcupines, and Canadian lynx in the Laurentian Forest; determined duck that dive downward into the water and shoot back up to the surface in the St. Lawrence Marine Ecosystem; and noisy penguin, puffins, and marres in the Polar Region.

    Good attraction for kids and adults alike. The Biodome has 4 climate zones that showcase plants and wildlife of those regions which are very close to the walking paths. Children will be able to see the animals up close and follow them for a distance.

    Even on a Sunday when we visited, the crowd was manageable and the walk through was pleasant.

    The Biodome is connected to the Planetarium via a basement walkway so you can visit the two attractions easily without taking your coats on and off. There's a coat check counter at $2 per coat. Alternatively,...Read More

    Not a whole lot when it comes to exotic animals (for my tastes), but this place as a whole is excellent. We did the planetarium and nature walk. The planetarium was an educational experience and very comfortable seating (I almost napped off a few times I was so comfortable). The nature walk is unlike most you walk into because you are "in" the creatures natural environment. The animals are up close and personal, and in some cases... you need to be careful where you walk to not step on something or be defecated upon! The penguins and the lynx exhibits...Read More

    There aren't many places that houses several ecosystems under one roof. The Biodome de Montreal offers a trio of such environments. In some areas, visitors are within a few feet of the wildlife. Being able to physically walk through wall of humidity of the lush jungles, feel the dry air of the deserts and press your face up against floor-to-ceiling tanks offers an experience like kno other.

    If you have children, this is hands down a wonderful place to bring them. I can't tell you how many children's faces I saw light up whenever they see...Read More

    great time, but very annoyed with different prices for different residents. Tourists (those from out-of-Province) should not have to pay more then Quebecers. This takes away incentive for tourists to travel and use their leisure time in Quebec. As a public attraction this is a joke that Non-Quebecers pay more. Next time I go to Sandbanks Provincial Park in my local area (Ontario) I will be sure to demand 5$ extra from all Quebec residents, see how they like it. Management at Biodome should give their heads a shake

    One of the best highlights of our trip! Excellent facility, very well maintained. Fell in love with their Penguin Habitat. Definitely worth the visit...!

If you wish to beat the crowd, tickets purchase at the Planetarium counter is faster than the Biodome counter. There are daily presentation shows in French and English at the Planetarium.

If you have children, this is hands down a wonderful place to bring them. I can't tell you how many children's faces I saw light up whenever they see an animal for the first time. Even for adults, it's a nice way to spend a few hours. Make sure you look up the schedule to catch the penguin feedings and the educational presentations in their local theater.
