Biodome:
Montreal, QU

I wouldn’t call the Biodome an indoor zoo because it is so much more than that. Located on the site of the 1976 Olympics and right near the Montreal Tower, the Biodome is a series of recreated ecosystems found in the Americas.

The Biodôme, whose name means “house of life,” opened in 1992. The purpose is to educate the population, conserve the wellbeing of the over 4,500 animals from approximately 220 different species and 500 plant species housed there. They also focus on saving endangered species and safeguard fragile natural habitats. The Biodome is an ideal place for scientific research and is used to study the eco systems.

The Biodome is divided into 5 sections. There is the Tropical Rainforest which stays warm even throughout the freezing Montreal winter. The Laurentian Maple Forest, the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the subpolar regions of the Labrador Coast and Sub-Atlantic Islands.

Each section has the landscape climate and vegetation as well as wildlife found in that area. It is really beautifully done and has a very realistic feel. There are penguins, many types of fish and birds, golden lion tamarin, reptiles, beavers, porcupines, otters and lynx and many other interesting animals on site.

The Biodome is located in the same Olympic complex as the Montreal Tower and there are combination tickets available for a discounted price.
