The Biodome

The Biodome in Montreal, Canada is one of my favorite places to go. If you haven’t been, I would highly recommend over any zoo. The animals are happy and playful, free to roam in their environment, and well cared for. Every time I go, I leave feeling a childlike sense of wonder at the magnificent creatures of the world.

It is good for people of all ages (strollers are allowed). There are interactive pieces to each exhibit, whether going down a slide with the otters, or feeling under water with the fish themselves, the Biodome will hold your attention and make you never want to leave.

One thing I will say that makes the Biodome stand out from all the rest, is that they always have some kind of statement to make with one exhibit or another. When I was there, they had turned one habitat into a statement on littering, pollution, and how trash is harming the birds and fish of the ocean. Some parts of if were quite a shock, hitting home when I saw the piles of garbage (safely put out of reach of the animals), and the dead animals trapped inside (fake corpses, plastic I believe).

If you haven’t been, it is a place I would recommend you go before you die. It is by far one of my favorite places to go when I am in Canada.
