Basically it is Montreal's zoo. But it consists of 4 ecosystems and they are extremely well designed and kept. Worth it checking it out if you are interested in animals. Especially tropical animals. You can also see a beaver, so its a bonus.Recommended for:

Overall I was impressed with the Montreal Biodome. The exhibits were beautifully done and if you want to feel immersed in the habitat of each animal this is definitely the place for you. Those wanting to check off seeing a lot of animals would surely be disappointed. It’s a great trip if you have the afternoon off – to make it more worth your while I suggest combining it with admissions to other attractions within the Space For Life.

This is the place to go with family and a group of friends. Whether summertime or winter holidays, there is already some new activity of something ready for us to see and observe. I like to go at least once a year and I never regret it!Recommended for:

Novel idea for a zoo-aquarium place. I was thoroughly impressed. All the animals flies free in a recreation of their 'natural' habitat. I went back for a return visit two years later and still loved it as much as the first time. It is one of the few unique zoos where the visitor follows a designated path through the lushes forests and is immersed in the world of the animals, discovering a little frog under the leaf, a bird in the trees, a turtle crawling on the ground, it brings a sense of wonder and discovery for both adults and children, from tropical to arctic to the ocean. When we went the first time, they had their 'Butterfly Go Free' event where you are admitted into the room where butterflies are free flying everywhere, sometimes even on the clothes of visitors. Remember that fairy tale dream of being surrounded by butterflies? This is it.
Biodome is one of the museums in the complex near Olympic stadium and its tickets can be purchased as parts of combo with the Planetarium, Botanic Garden, Insectarium and Olympic Stadium. If you are visiting more than one attraction, skip the line at Biodome and get the tickets at another attraction.Recommended for:

Beautiful wildlife and foliage. We were very excited for the 'hands-on' aspect and were a bit disappointed. It's definitely a good stop for tourists. Buy your pass as a package with the botanical gardens!!

It's essentially a covered zoo with different regions climates simulated with their wildlife. Located next to the Olympic stadium, it was a great deal of fun to see many different type of animals. The tropical zone is essentially an open jungle with walkways while sloths and birds roam around or hang above you. The favorites have to be the sea otters and penguins

Ahhh, la Biodome! A perfect place to while away an afternoon with a friend (or a date!) and check out fish, penguins and other adorable creatures.
I really love the synthetic re-creation of all the different eco-systems and climates on earth - really neat to walk through when it's -20 and snowing outside in chilly Montreal during the winter!
Definitely worth a visit if you love science, animals or have children.Recommended for:

It had it's moments, but honestly, I thought it was a smaller overpriced zoo with little information on the 4 environments featured. In particular, the atlantic coast and the artic areas were incredibly lacking. I did enjoy the near by funicular up olympic tower.

Montreal's educational biodome explores various habitats and climates. It's much more open than a typical zoo - you can walk right through most of each habitat, with butterflies and other animals darting around you.
