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.
