After more than two years of work, the Biodôme de Montréal will reopen to the public this month.

On August 31, the Biodôme and Espace pour la vie is inviting everyone to book their tickets for the grand reopening celebration.

The iconic space has undergone a revitalization which includes a “multisensory and immersive experience” as guests can make their way through five ecosystems of the Americas.

“After more than two years of work, we have our Biodôme back — more beautiful, more relevant and more informative than ever,” said Montréal Mayor Valérie Plante. “Thirty years after it opened, the Biodôme is still playing a leading role in showcasing our ecosystems and reminding us just how fragile and invaluable biodiversity is.”

Plante says a visit to the Biodôme should remind us about how lucky we are to live in a place with “such rich biodiversity and underscores the enormous responsibility we have to protect and preserve it.”

In a press release, Biodôme officials say guests will be struck by the gorgeous splendour of the original building with new add-ons to continue the iconic venue’s everlasting success.

Designers have made the Biodôme experience more “immersive and multisensory than ever” with the addition of a treetop view of the Tropical Rainforest, new walkways that mimic the salt sea air of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, perspectives of lynx’s habitat in the Laurentian Maple Forest, and an ice tunnel of the Sub-Antarctic Islands ecosystem.

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.
