Montreal Biodôme is a science center and ecological zoo that is home to four distinct ecosystems: a lush Tropical Forest, the temperate Laurentian Forest, the St. Lawrence Marine Ecozystem and the Polar worlds of the Arctic and Antarctic. Plenty of interpretative panels and staff are on hand to help visitors on self-guided tour. The Environment Place amphitheater presents films, performances and lectures, all related to conservation and environmental protection.
THe Biodome de Montreal is awesome! i went there and i learned alot about different kinds of animals. (fishes, turtles, penguins, etc.) I loved those penguins too! so cute! i hope i can go back there again! You can also see a great view of Olympic Stadium during the ride up the elevator.
I liked it because it gives you a different aspect into what is an ecosystem and what kind of plants animal and food source is available to them. Its great if you want to habe fun but also learn at the same time and of course the animals are awesome
Found the place to be a substandard zoo. The upside to the Biodome was the penguin exhibit - which was pretty neat. Otherwise, the Biodome was quite small, took only an hour or so to get through, and was not very interesting. Small selection of animals. I would recommend it to penguin lovers and people who can't get to a real zoo.
On the other hand, running at about $10CAD, it wasnt too overvalued.
I loved the Biodome! It was a lot of fun watching the animals in an area close to their natural environment. I do wish the arctic area had been bigger, though. That's the only thing I think the Biodome could improve on. You should definitely visit the biodome if your in Montreal. It's fun for kids and adults alike.
I really liked the Biodome a lot! I am an animal freak, and I love nature, so this was definately the place for me! I was a little upset however that they were so inflexible about time. I was with a group of 40 poeple and they were very unwilling to stay open in the gift shop a few minutes longer to accomodate us if need be, so we had to go on super speed through the bio dome to make sure that the students on our trip had time to shop. I probably could have spent more time inside. The gift shop had some great prices, and we bought some amazing souvenirs for next to nothing!
We were very dissapointed. This place is mostly hype. They could really put some money into improving and expanding the Biodome. The artic area was very small and the other areas were not very impressive. It was not worth the money and seems to be a tourist trap.
The Biodome, in Montreal was an excellent choice for a family day trip while visting Montreal. It is conveniently located off the Metro, which we found to be timely, clean and reasonably priced. We found the best value to be the package plan that included the biodome, botanical gardens and insectarium. If you're interested in these sort of things set aside the whole day (you'll need it). The entrance fees were reasonable, however, as expected the concessions were typical for a tourist destination.
