We spent just over 4 hours here and could have spent more except it was closing. There are interactive displays, games, videos, a nature lab, a walking nature tour and more. This is the one of the best attractions I have ever been to. Informative...More

If you absolutely have to see it then go. Take a pic then rent a bike a ride around the island to make the trip worth it. Otherwise go to the old port and take a pic of it from Montreal then you can continue...More

This is now an interactive environmental museum, but of course the real reason to visit is for the architecture. Built as the US pavilion for the 1967 World's Fair, this is one of the earliest and greatest geodesic domes designed by the architect, environmentalist, and...More

The structure it's cute but actually, there is nothing much to do here. If you see it from distance, makes exactly the same sense than taking metro and spend your time. I will recommend it only if you have spare time and to put a...More

I say that because we toured both the Biosphere and the Tour de Levi. The bioshpere was fun because it's an interesting way to view the city and to see what was once a highlight of a World's Fair. There are some exhibits that relate...More

Biosphere is an icon of Montreal itself. Everybody becomes curious to see inside it when he looks at its shiny and beautiful shape. But its outside is beautiful. In fact, there is a scientific museum inside Biosphere that can be useful for children however, nowadays,...More

We went on a free day and would have been disappointed if we had to pay $15 admission.there is a god view from the outside deck. Displays are mainly about climate and the environment. Parking is close but pricey.

Interesting info on the environment, biodiversity and climate change. Mostly in the form of videos, and interactive models. Good place for a 5th grade field trip, but as a couple of adults on vacation we should have passed on this..

We arrived right at 10am when the facility opened and had most exhibits to ourselves or with limited other people. Very hands on activities in all areas (looking in microscopes, playing with climate, a 360 degree movie with fog and snow...). Lots of interaction for...More

Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together
make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The
mostly man-made grounds were built to be the site of
the 1967 World's Fair, and the chiefly car-free space
still retains its inherited carnival character. A
wonderland of foliage and flora awaits at the Jardins
des Floralies, with its expanse of pond-marked
wetlands making it perfect for hiking, nature walks,
