“At this captivating exhibit you can amble through a rainforest, explore Antarctic islands, view rolling woodlands, take in aquatic life in the Gulf of St Lawrence, or wander along the raw Atlantic oceanfront – all without ever leaving the building. The five ecosystems house many thousands of animal and plant species; follow the self-guided circuit and you will see everything. Be sure to dress in layers for the temperature swings. You can borrow free strollers; and interactive exhibits are at small-child height.”
“Plenty of shows and food trucks during summer time (every first friday's of the month) from June 7th to October 4th”
“It is relatively new and the shows are interesting. In one of the rooms you watch a film sitting on huge pillows looking at the dome ceiling. You need to buy tickets online in advance, otherwise you will wait when you get there. ”
“A classic, it’s a great rainy day visit to see all sorts of animals, close to the Biodome, botanical garden and Planetarium”
