Great facility with well thought out exhibits and great animals. The cafe however is not good. They attempted to be too eco-friendly and did not have water the day we were there.

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

My husband and I stopped here to take pictures during our drive by Montreal on our “Out East Tour”. I had been here 50 years before, in 1967, at Expo 67 when I was a teenager and really wanted to see it again. We were...More

Spent a couple hours here with my museum loving 19yr old son. I was bored. He was mildly entertained. It was expensive, $32 for the two of us. It looks cool, the dome structure, but I could have passed.

This place had a good mix of self-guided exhibits and presentations. Definitely worth a visit. I also liked that they had a section looking at the role the building played during Expo 67

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

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,
