Visiting One Of Montreal Top Attraction: The Montreal Biodome
On your next visit to Montreal, or even if you’re a Montrealer, you should pay a visit to Montreal Biodome. Originally constructed as a velodrome for the 1976 Summer Olympic Games. In 1992, it was converted to an indoor nature exhibit that has been ongoing since.
The Montreal Biodome is part of Space for life, the largest natural science museum complex in Canada — where you can find the Montreal Insectarium, the Montreal Botanical Garden and Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium.
The installations allow the visitors to travel through four different ecosystems that we can in find in the Americas. The Laurentian Forest and the Saint Lawrence Marine Eco-system are the ones that are very typical to Quebec and Canada. You will also find the Tropical Forest as well as the Sub-Polar Region.
This activity is truly good for all ages. I discovered so many new things on my last visit with my boyfriend Jeremie. It had been so many years since I visited and I saw the exhibit from a totally new perspective.
You can purchase a single ticket or a package to visit the different institutions. You have access to all the different options over here.
