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.
