The Montreal Biodome is a space where visitors can explore a total of four different eco-systems found in North and South America in a comfortable indoor setting. It offers visitors a fun and interesting way to explore the bio-diversity that makes up our planet's eco-system.

The four exhibits are the Tropical Forest, a reproduction of a South American rain forest; the Laurentian Forest which simulates a North American wilderness, the Saint Lawrence Marine Eco-system which models the habitat of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence estuary; and the Polar exhibits which introduce visitors to both the Arctic and Antarctica.

The exhibits are real - not just dioramas. They are filled with real plants and wildlife from the regions they represent. Think of it as a very large themed aquarium and zoo all in one with a controlled climate that even follows the seasons. The result truly is a memorable experience which explains why the Biodome attracts close to one million visitors every year.

The Biodome was first opened in 1992 inside a large stadium located in adjacent to Olympic Stadium. The stadium was originally built to house the Velodrome during the 1976 Olympic Summer Games. Renovations to convert it into the Biodome began in 1989.

Both adults and children are sure to be left with fond memories of their visit to this popular Montreal attraction.

Rated 4.5 out of 5Space For Life Museum Star Rating

5 Star Rating A nice way to take a break from winter. Usually spend a couple hours here, breathing some fresh air and admiring the plants.

5 Star Rating It deserves several visits a year. Every single time you will learn something new.

3 Star Rating Would better in summer or spring. It's not aesthetic in winter.

5 Star Rating I enjoyed my time at this museum. Would suggest leaving 2 or 3 hours time there so you can enjoy the view of the city on the top level and the exhibits are good if you like environmental science and demographics. Island and museum is accessible by subway service.
