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.

  • Always a great place to visit. Late September and into late October the Chinese lanterns and the Japanese gardens are full on. The Chinese lanterns were lit up and many were in the small Lake in the Chinese area. Amazing at night... day and night are completely different. You can even buy a season pass, so you won't miss anything. The metro / Subway brings you almost right to the door. Right across from the Olympic stadium which is easy to see from miles / kilometres away. Don't forget the Insectarium. Scary beautiful at its least. And if they ever play baseball again. Well. your right across the street. Go Expos!

  • Simply breathtaking, some exhibitions like the light gardens get busy very fast. I suggest going to see the light gardens during the week to avoid over crowding. I also recommend going towards the middle or end of afternoon. The restaurant has an amazing tuna sandwich for a decent price. So much to see, so bring good shoes and a camera!.

  • It's nice and big. The featured live sculptures, that are allover Google search are not there. They are from last year and not done every year. This year they had some contraptions like a building or so made from willow saplings. The mountain garden was nice but Japanese one not that much. I would not spend 1 day there if visiting. If you live in Montreal is a nice place to relax.

  • This place is crazy huge, prepare to spend 5 hours (or more walking)-- no joke, my sister and I did that. But there was just so much to see and everything was fascinating. You could as well visit twice.

  • The Montreal Botanical Garden is a great place to spend the day or afternoon. Beautiful walk with well kept grounds. Flower, plants, and trees are in great condition. There’s plenty to read during your walk about the specific plants and trees. Exhibits are also full of interesting facts and beautifully kept.
