Quebec is under nightly curfew between 8 pm and 5 am. Stay home and consult the Confinement in Québec page for curfew details. Outdoor sites will have controlled access, and the number of visitors will be managed per site. We remind everyone to follow all public health guidelines, which should be posted at all outdoor venues.


The newly renovated Biodôme de Montréal has reopened amid Quebec’s latest round of eased COVID-19 restrictions.

In fact, both of the Espace pour la vie venues have reopened as of Monday. The Jardin botanique is open to the public as well.

According to Espace pour la vie, tickets are “flying away at lightning speed” and guests are urged to book theirs in advance at the venue’s online ticket office.

Espace pour la vie says tickets for this weekend are already sold out, stressing how important it is to pre-purchase tickets. The venue says tickets for March break are already being sold and that the Biodôme and Jardin botanique are functioning at limited capacity to comply with COVID-19 protocols.

The Biodôme is open every day from 9 am to 5 pm and the Jardin botanique is open daily from 7:30 am to 5 pm. Tickets cost a smooth $19 to enter each one.

In September, before the second wave of COVID-19 shut down venues and museums across the province, Espace pour la vie reopened after more than two years of construction and refurbishment work.

The iconic space’s renovations are 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.

Espace pour la vie says it 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.
