Day 4 in Montreal! Oh I have to post this picture. It is an entrance of Metro station: Station Square-Victoria. The unique gate was the replica of Paris’ metro station! Luckily, it was just close to our hotel, Le Dauphin.

Station Square-Victoria, Montreal

Our destination on that day was going to Parc Olympique and Biodome. You can get here by stopping at Station Pie-IX or Station Viau, since the park spans between these two metro stations. We stopped at Station Viau and just outside the station, there was a Famous Player building – if only we had time to watch movie hehehe… Couple steps away, we saw the Biodome building. We went inside and we saw lots of parents with young children there. They were enjoying educational recreation by visiting the Rain Forest Replica. We went to the lower level of the building where there was a kid space where you can touch the preserved animal for education purposes. They also have several interesting games, like guessing the smell of various plants. We had so much fun playing around while little kids were watching us hahaha… Oh and I just had to snap a picture of the rabbit!


Biodome and the kid space at the lower ground

Behind this Biodome, there is a Botanical Garden with a beautiful Japanese garden inside and a Insectarium nearby.In front of Biodome, there was a construction of what it seemed to be a Planetarium. The old Montreal Planetarium was closed recently and now they’re building the updated high-tech one that will be opened in 2013: Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium.
