If you’ve been thinking about taking a trip to the Biodome, it’s best not to put it off much longer. The popular attraction will soon be closed for more than a year while it undergoes substantial renovations.
According to communications coordinator Nadine Fortin, the final date of closure has not been announced yet, but it is expected to close shortly after the municipal council meeting on March 26. It will reopen in the summer of 2019.
The renovations are aimed at improving the visitor experience, and will cost an estimated $19-million. Improvements are to include new walkways, and cosmetic improvements to modernize the facility.
The Biodome is one of Montreal’s most popular tourist attractions. The nature museum features detailed re-creations of four ecosystems — a tropical rainforest, northern hardwood forest, sub-arctic climate and Gulf of St. Lawrence — along with live plants and animals.
