This massive, intricate and beautifulplant conservatory is the fruit of the labors of Brother Marie-Victorin, who’s mission was to "conserve, develop and present to the public living plant collections, pursue research activities, and educate Montreal citizens and all visitors in botany and horticulture". He conceived it in 1920, and it took 10 years of lobbying and fundraising before the garden was opened to the public. Regardless of when one visits there always something abloom here, grown in specialized greenhouses. There even an Insectarium for those who aren’t put off by creepy crawlies. And whatever you do, don’t miss the Chinese and Japanese Gardens. The variety, presentation, condition of the plants, and compactness of the visit are astounding. Whether you cover the entire park or just lounge under the trees, you’ll feel cleansed after a day here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Montreal Itinerary 5 Days.

Great place to have a picnic and spend the day with the family. Tickets range from $15 - $21 for adults. Very reasonable price for the amount of gorgeous outdoor space you get to explore. The garden host all kind of different shows & events during the summer months, so don't forget to check out their event calendar on their web page. Give your body a treat! Have a visit and get some good exercise and clean air in your system!
There are so many different places to see in this garden! For taking pictures, I would recommend using the object/function if your camera has one to focus mainly on the flowers and nothing else. This garden has a poison place which I think is very unique because no other garden I've been to has something similar. Just be aware that you shouldn't touch those kinds of plants. The experience in this garden has been great! I would recommend going here if you are visiting in Montreal.
The best botanical Gardens I have ever visited. This place is huge and has more than something for everyone. You will need a good day to see everything here, as the trails seem to go on endlessly. I came here in Sept and the flower garden was still in colourful bloom. The greenhouses showcases lots of cacti and tropical plants. Amongst other sections, forests, old trees, kitchen garden, there's also the first nations forest, rock, grass, zen garden and most fun and popular of all the Chinese gardens. It's so colourful and playful with every corner a great photo opportunity. For the price it is well worth to spend an enjoyable day for all ages.
Great place to get away while still in the city. Peaceful and beautiful landscape. One complete section was under construction. A discount should have been offered. Would go back again. Pack a lunch !
This place is beautiful and well curated. Each room has a different climate with different plant species. Also, buy the bundled tickets to check out the nearby insect museum as well. Staff was very nice and informative at the garden.
