Was fun to return to what was the velodrome during the Olympics in 1976. Great use of a huge space. Displays were well constructed and allows visitors to observe animals in their habitats. Penguins were amazing!

A great way to experience many different climates and interact with the animals that inhabit them. It is a fun way to learn.

The Biodome has several ecosystems simulated under one roof, allowing you to see various animals from subtropical to arctic regions. I thought it was a pretty cool place with lots of interesting facts about the animals living there. Fun no matter what age you are.

We travel with both kids, ages 9 and 11. It was a great family outing. We decide to take the metro so the kids would experience the underground. The metro stop is at the Bio Dome. Was not expensive for the family. Kids loved it. Would recommend to anyone traveling with kids.

The Biodome was built inside the Montreal velodrome, inside the impressive Olympic park. The building itself is beautiful and the attractions inside - aquariums and the tropical forest - are totally worth the visit.

Well this was a nice escape from the cold outside! Pretty cool set-up. Enjoyed watching the animals at a feeding and seeing the birds nesting. Even got a glimpse of a cute little monkey, that would probably eat my face off if I tried to love on him like I wanted to....

I really enjoyed this place. It has several sections set up with different biomes and in each there is an immersive environment of flora and fauna. The capybara and beavers were my favorite part. There isn't much of a barrier in some of the rooms between the animals and the tourists but the most dangerous animals like the crocodiles are... More

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
