The Montreal Biodôme
An oasis in the heart of the city, it recreates some of the most beautiful ecosystems of the Americas: the lush and humid Tropical Rainforest, the Laurentian Maple Forest, the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and the Subpolar Regions of the Americas. This ecosystem concept was a world first when it opened in 1992. Twenty-five years later, this systemic approach still has no equal in the faithful and complex way in which it represents the natural environment. Together, the Biodôme, Insectarium, Botanical Garden and Planetarium form a place where nature and science are honored.

Set between the St. Lawrence River and the downtown skycrapers, the historic city centre was once surrounded by walls and its narrow and winding streets can easily be explored on foot. You will be surrounded by the intermingled traces of different periods of the city - from 1642 to nowadays.
