  • Unfortunately it was closed during my visit by a sort of "remodeling". However, the place is very nice and super "chill". You can make a great walk around Central magnificent of the Park and of course you will have a beautiful view of the city.

  • After finding free street parking about three blocks away we arrived at the biodome to find it closed for renovations. The Olympic stadium and plaza is next door so we locked at that instead.  more »
  • The dome is huge and quite impressive. The museum inside it will allow you to go up to the middle of the dome. View from there was pretty. Museum usually charges 15$CAD but when I went, it was Museum ...  more »

  • It’s a really good place to visit for tourists and animal enthusiasts. I was quite surprised that the animals are just left free. The whole thing is divided into different ecosystems like tropical, arctic etc.. In one of the sections, the birds just fly around the place, sometimes right in front of you. Would highly recommend.
  • This place is SO COOL! I was brought here as a child and to this day I feel my understanding of different ecosystems and environments has been significantly improved from having been able to see this. An incredible place for all ages. I encourage anybody considering brining their children here to do so, its truly life changing to be able to see at arms length animals in their habitats from all over the world up close that you may otherwise never see.
  • When I was with my friend in Montreal we spent most of a rainy day in the Biodome. It looks quite small from outside. However, we spent many hours there. It is an interesting exhibition of the plants and animals in all major climate zones of North America. The information on the panes and the identification guide are quite educating. A visit is highly recommend to everyone who is interested in nature. 4.5 out of 5
  • Cool little zoo to visit with four distinct areas to explore. This is a really cool use of the former Olympic infrastructure. A lot of the animals are nocturnal so they are a bit inactive or can be hard to spot. Admission is reasonably priced as you can easily spend two or three hours reading the information and spotting the animals.
  • Biodome is a very good place to spend sometime and learn more about other ecosystems. For exemple the first one, the tropical forest is very hot and wet, you can see some different animals there. Very interesting!
