Frequently asked questions
FAQ - Biodôme
I bought a Passeport MTL or Passion Montréal package. Is it still valid for the Biodôme?
The Biodôme is not part of either of these packages for 2018.
I bought some tickets online (single or package tickets), and I didn’t make it to the Biodôme before it closed. What can I do with them?
A Biodôme ticket purchased online can be exchanged for a ticket to the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan or the Jardin botanique and Insectarium.
The same is true for a package bought online: the Biodôme portion can be exchanged for a ticket to the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan or the Jardin botanique and Insectarium.
I was given some guest passes for the Biodôme that I thought I’d use this summer. What can I do with them?
Your guest passes are valid until the expiry date marked on them.
I bought a package including the Biodôme, before it closed. I didn’t use the Biodôme portion. Can I keep my ticket and use it once the Biodôme reopens or exchange it?
You have two options:
- You can keep your ticket and use it once the Biodôme reopens in 2019, or
- You can exchange it for a ticket to the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan or the Jardin botanique and Insectarium and use it now.
It’s up to you!
