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 4.4 out of 5Montreal Biodome Star Rating

5 Star Rating Came here by myself and totally enjoyed my time here. Such beautiful recreation of our ecosystem under one roof. The place is so well maintained and well marked. It is of great interest not just to kids, but also adults.

5 Star Rating Such a great experience and fun for all ages. You walk through 3 different ecosystems and see all the animals and how they fit into their ecosystem. There are staff members available throughout to assist with questions or to share some more information with you if you’d like to hear. The trails are mostly accessible aside from 2 aerial walkways that have stairs and no ramps or elevators. But you can see these areas from down below so it does not take away from your experience. There is a vegan restaurant in the food court that sells delicious food, snacks and drinks to replenish you after the walk. And the gift shop is one of my favourite places. I want to buy everything in there. They have such a great selection of toys and gifts. An absolute must see if you’re in Montreal!

5 Star Rating September 2023 5* Visited the place with my little one and they really liked it. We visited on Saturday morning but you can buy ticket on site. It will take around 60-90 minutes to see the full area. The biodome has 4 areas to show 5 different ecosystem in North America. You can see animals, birds, fishes and penguins. You will need to walk inside the place so it is better to take strollers for little one. All area are interconnected. Washrooms are located outside. There is good food court near the exit. The food was fresh and delicious. You can also buy items from gift shop.

5 Star Rating The Montreal Biodome is a cool place to visit. It's great to see different kinds of places from nature all under one roof. But, it gets really busy. So, it's a good idea to book your ticket online or get there early. Walking through it feels like a quick trip around the world. But sometimes, it gets a bit crowded with folks stopping a lot to take pictures, which can slow you down. So, if you don't mind waiting a bit and plan ahead for tickets, you're in for a good time. The Biodome is a fun way to spend a day, learning and seeing new things, even if it gets a bit crowded.
