The word Biodôme comes from the Greek words bios, or life, and domos, house.
An oasis in the heart of the city, the Montréal Biodôme recreates some of the most beautiful ecosystems of the Americas. The lush and humid Tropical Forest, warm even in the depths of a Montréal winter. The Laurentian Forest, changing with the seasons, the St. Lawrence Marine Ecosystem, replicating the Estuary and the Gulf, and the Polar Worlds of the Arctic and Antarctic.
Plant and animal life abound all along the pathway leading through these different environments.
Since it opened on June 19, 1992, the Montréal Biodôme has been explored by about 10 million people. Many of our visitors come back over and over again—just like Nature herself, the Biodôme promises a different experience every time.
The Biodôme's ecosystems are designed for self-guided tours. Interpretation panels are posted all along the pathway, and nature interpreters are available in the ecosystems and at the Info-Ecosphere desk to answer visitors' questions. Except for certain special activities, there are no guided tours.
