Biodome Museum (Montreal, Canada) Reviews
Newest Review: ... asleep! The best times to go apparently are early morning and late afternoon to catch all the animals at feeding time. The Biodome contains animals, plants and sealife from many regions of the world all housed in different zones to reflect their natural climate and habitat.
