Tips for visitors to the Montréal Biodôme

NOTICE TO VISITORS

The greenhouses of the Jardin botanique
are currently closed for inspection and maintenance work.
The outdoor gardens are open to visitors.
Discounted rates are in effect.

Due to the anticipated noise impact of the concerts to be held at the Olympic Park on May 25 and 26 (Fuego Fuego Festival) and May 30 (Half Moon Run show), please note that the Planétarium will close early on these days:

→ Closing at 1 p.m. on May 25 and 26
→ Closing at 4:30 p.m. on May 30

Given the heavy traffic around the Olympic Park on these two weekends,
we strongly recommend that you take public transit.
The Biodôme and Planétarium parking lots will remain available to visitors;
however, access may be difficult and they will fill up quickly.
