Montreal: Botanical Garden

Doing more exploring in Montreal, we continued to use our Passeport MTL to gain admission to the Insectarium and the Montreal Botanical Garden.

If you’re a fan of creepy-crawlies, then the Insectarium is for you. Dedicated to bugs of all kinds, some living, some dead…the place was popular with the kids! Outside, we noticed a food stall set up and an educational display promoting bugs as a food source. There were termite tacos on the menu! I opted for something sweet: a chocolate-dipped ice cream cone covered in ants. Actually not bad!

After the Insectarium we continued through the Montreal Botanical Garden (Jardin botanique de Montréal). The beautiful grounds comprise different themes like the Chinese Garden, Japanese Garden, Alpine Garden, and more. A large greenhouse also displays countless plants and flowers. If you’re looking for green space and nice stroll, then head over to the botanical garden!
