I Visited The New And Improved Montreal Biodome & Here's What It's Really Like (PHOTOS)

The Montreal Biodome has always been one of my favourite spots in the city. And, after being under renovation for YEARS, it has finally reopened its doors to the public. So naturally, I had to go check it out for myself.

Before going, you should know they it's required to purchase tickets ahead of time, online.

Adults who are residents of Quebec will pay $16.25 per ticket.

When you first walk in, you'll enter the new, slick, all-white mezzanine that's truly a sight for sore eyes.

From there, a tour guide will tell you that there's no specific way to follow and to explore the sections at your own pace.

There are three different zones, the Sub-polar Region, which is a little chilly, the Tropical Rainforest, which is very humid, and the Laurentian Maple Forest, which is just right.

Within the Laurentian Maple Forest, there's also a section dedicated to the Gulf Of St. Lawrence.

All the doors open automatically and there's a hand-sanitizer displayed at every entrance.

And of course, you must wear a mask at all times and keep a good distance from other visitors.

The pristine, new Biodome is filled with a ton of animals.

Some of the new features that I noticed were the viewing platforms, which give visitors a bird's eye view of the joint.

And, an icy entrance to the penguin habitat.

Along with the new observation areas in the rainforest and lynx sections as well as the renovated penguin area, the Biodome has restored its visitor experience making it even more immersive. 

The renovated Biodome gives you the impression of travelling the globe without ever leaving the building.
