Biosphere in Montreal is a unique museum with several nice exhibits dedicated to environment. Certainly worth visiting.

Having seen some of the more negative reviews I thought twice about my visit but as it turned out was glad I went. Actually just being inside this unique structure is an experience in itself. Given the enormity of the topic matter of saving the planet, some of contents of the exhibits are quite basic but they are well presented and it's still worth your time visiting. The staff are enthusiastic and helpful. Reduced entrance fee (which is still reasonable anyway) with a ticket from the Stewart Museum.

We took the yellow line of the subway just to go to the island. Walking over to have a look at the river, we passed the Biosphere & noticed stairs going up to the top. Well we had been to the Tower & the Observatoire so we wanted to go up here too. I was too tired to climb those stairs so we went inside to see if there was an elevator. We were completely surprised to find an environmental 'museum'. And an elevator. Although we had no time to explore, we did walk past 'interactive' displays & lots of greenery. Although the top level wasn't terribly high, we enjoyed going out on the deck & seeing the river & the city from a different viewpoint. We were there late afternoon in the Fall & the place was deserted, but we thought it looked worthwhile; I was surprised to read otherwise on a few reviews.
