  • General state of the building is poor. Space for the animals is far too narrow, really did not expect this in Canada. I would avoid this place.

  • Visited the Biodome for the first time and it was a fantastic experience. It was such a great time looking at different animals. They are so adorable. The space is very well structured and there is a lot of walking involved so be prepared. Some sections are way hotter as the temperatures are maintained such for the animals. So its a challenge to walk around with heavy winter jackets. My most favourite were the Penguins & Otters! A must-visit with family & friends!
  • Amazing experience. Lots to see and totally worth it. We loved the penguins the most and went at feeding time which was interesting to see. The Lynx and otters were close seconds. The app didn’t seem to do much for me and wasn’t worth the download unless you want to learn more about the animals. I was very hot throughout most of the visit, unclear if because of temps inside for the animals or because there were a lot of people, or both. Would recommend dressing light. I liked how open it was.
