Quite the engineering feat but the price to go in was too steep in order to justify going in. Bottom line - too expensive.

Not great for little kids, fortunately this was included with the fetes de neige. Otherwise it would have been a complete rip off. The science centre is better for kids 5 and 7. Even without them I found the exhibits a little dry.

This attraction is informative if you are interested in weather patterns or the World Fair of 1967. Other than those two things there is no reason to visit. I would not go again. The biosphere was an enclosed unit many years ago but then a...More

An interesting site with an even more interesting history, the important part is the information provided on the environment and the way we need to move forward in the future. While there wasn’t as many exhibits as I thought there would be the ones that...More

The Biosphere in Montréal is visually cool. The Biosphere has an interior structure surrounding by a sphere of scaffolding. It doesn’t seem like much but the visuals from a distance and up close are amazing at night. The Biosphere is definitely worth a look from...More

Despite being roasted in a fire back in 1976, the main steel spherical structure has remained well intact, even after so many decades since its construction in 1967 for the World's Fair. WARNING! I'm a science geek, but be prepared for some serious information overload....More

We were able to see the Biosphere from the Old Town and from the Observation Tower downtown Montreal. Pretty cool architecture. It is a museum dedicated to the environment. It is located at Parc Jean-Drapeau, on Saint Helen's Island in the former pavilion of the...More

An interesting building, promises more exhibits than it actually delivers. An interesting multi-dimensional introductory session, but some of the hands-on experiments were rather pedestrian, and not up to the standard I would have expected. Shame there were no refreshment facilities on site, and all nearby...More

This is worth a visit, there are attractions for the whole family and there is a great walk up the hill to the tower if the weather is good.

This an environmental museum. There is lots of information on climate change and some interactive displays. The material is informative and interesting but there is a fair bit reading as you move through the space. It is organized in a sequential manner and you work...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,
