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.

Botanical Garden Reviews & Ratings

  • A beautiful spot to visit. They have continued to make improvements and add more features. If you are visiting for the lanterns it is an excellent idea to purchase the tickets in advance. There are plenty of public washrooms throughout the gardens. Very easy to access by metro. Google maps reports that the walk is 16 minutes. It's much closer to 5 minutes at the entrance.

  • One of the must see places in Montreal. There is an east entrance and west entrance. There is definitely a lot of walking to do. It would take 5 hours to cover the entire place in detail. There is free train access- so you can use it as much as you want to commute between various spots in the Botanical Garden. The entire place is well maintained and picturesque! Absolutely loved it....

  • This is a little bit of a hike from downtown Montreal but absolutely worth it. The gardens are gorgeous and well manicured. The Japanese garden is very peaceful and the Chinese garden is really unique. We also went during the illumination which made it even more interesting of a place. It also has lots of fun things for kids to do.

  • Great place to spend half/full day at. I enjoy visiting botanical gardens to begin with but this is probably the coolest one I have visited in Canada. There is a fee though but it's so worth it. It's very spacious and you get to explore different plants and different culturally themed garden. The little souvenir shop also sells various exotic plants! I brought a carnivorous plant back home and it's happily sitting on my desk.

  • The day we went it was very warm so we did not walk the whole garden. If I had more time I would go back in the early morning so we could walk around and enjoy it more in the coolness. I really appreciate seeing the spices and what the tree or bush looks like. On the weekend we went they also had a bonsai show. I was amazed at the beautiful, peaceful and old bonsai trees.

    • Thank you for the information about the most precious document to have when touring "the Map".and the telephone contact. I'll give them a call and ask if they can send me a paper copy of the Map and then take it from there. Happy travelling.
