We visited the Botanical Garden during a beautiful day at the peak of peony season. We saw the streams and blooms section, which had masses of colorful peonies and irises planted along a meandering stream. Plantings were also near a pond with shade trees, benches, and Adirondack chairs. There were mother ducks with ducklings and many sing birds. We also visited the Japanese garden, which featured a pond with waterfall and colorful koi fish. This park is great for people of all ages.

The Biodome in Montreal is a combination of a zoo and an aquarium. There are 5 ecosystems throughout the dome, each one containing different species. My favorite was the sub polar region which contained the Penguins. The Tropical Rainforest is also pretty amazing. Visit their website to learn more about their ecosystems and animals they house. You can take your time and spend up to 3 hours at the biodome, or you can walk through it quickly in under an hour.

We used our Montreal Museum pass and visited on a rainy afternoon in May. The Chagall exhibit was going at the time, and having visited the Opera Garnier in Paris previously, we were thrilled to learn more about him and see some of his work. Needless to say, I was blown away by the sheer volume of work the Museum was able to gather for the exhibit. It was very crowded, but so glad to see folks out enjoying it. Well done Montreal.
