SUNDAY SKETCHING: Naturalia Room : Free Educational Area of the Biodome

Downstairs underneath the main exhibition floor in the Biodome, they have a large space full of preserved animals and scientific displays.  The area has tables and stools. and they don’t mind if  you bring some of the objects down to examine ( if you check with the docent). As well, there are views of the Biodome architecture through the main floor windows, and of course, there is the option to pay and go inside the exhibits.

The Naturalia area is free! So that’s where I think we should focus – but if you have an Access Montreal Card (for MTL residents), or are a senior or student, there are discounts for the main halls.

It is, of course, only 15 minutes walk to the Insectarium and the Greenhouse at the Botanical Garden. Additional fees required, or membership card.
