After more than two years of work, the Biodôme de Montréal has finally reopened.
The Biodôme and Espace pour la vie used the last day of August to showcase the iconic space’s renovations which is highlighted by a new “multisensory and immersive experience” as guests can make their way through five ecosystems of the Americas.
The Biodôme says guests can now get “much closer” to the animals and can learn more through the venue’s new “enthusiastic science guides.”
Using some elements from the Biodôme’s original 1976 design, guests can now observe the birds in the Tropical Rainforest from treetop level, enter a beaver lodge, and really experience what subpolar cold feels like – just like the penguins.

“Today is the official reopening of the radically redesigned Biodôme, and visitors, already very attached to this gem of a museum, are in for a wonderful surprise,” says an Espace pour la vie news release. “Guests will not only discover the newly refurbished facilities, but also enjoy a totally redesigned visitor experience.”
The venue also launched a new mobile app so guests can explore the new space easier and at their own pace.
The Biodôme has taken all the necessary health safety precautions in regards to COVID-19 and has a new timed ticket procedure to ensure the venue will function at a safe capacity.
Ticketing information and pricing is available on the Espace pour la vie website.
But until then, here’s how the iconic new spot looks after it’s official and much-anticipated relaunch.
