Visitor Reviews

This review submitted by Neils Johs. Legarth Iversen January 2001
The Biodôme of Montréal is placed right beside the huge Botanical Garden in the eastern end of the city and housed in some of the leftovers from the Olympic Games (a velodrome). It is divided in four areas, representing different biotopes: a tropical rainforest, a temperate forest, a temperate shoreline plus an antarctic section with pinguins stomping around. As everything is indoors, you walk around in the climate of the section, - which means that you pass from humid tropical heat to freezing temperatures within minutes (dress flexibly). To learn about the biotopes of the world this is a fine place, as the different sections are as realistical as you might realistically expect (of course you cannot obtain a kilometerlong viewline within a building), but if you come to look at the animals, you will discover that they are experts in how to hide. You would see more species in a old fashioned zoo, but at the expense of realism.
