Worth a visit - some decent exhibits for all ages to enjoy and learn from. Viewing platform inside gives a perspective on local landscape. Area around attraction currently undergoing reconstruction which takes away from approach but I wouldn’t let that stop a visit.

We didn’t go inside the museum, but we had fun taking pictures outside. If you ever visit Montreal, it is a good place to visit.

I like how Montreal retains and recycles structures used decades ago. This building must have been something when it opened for expo 1967. The exhibits are informative with numerous hands-on activities including a lab. If you are not interested in environmental science, i.e. seeing the...More

Cool building with a variety of different environmental exhibits. My favorites were the one on climate change and the one with explanations of the different methods of generating power. I also enjoyed the exhibit on the environment of Montreal. Only 4 stars because I was...More

The Biosphere is an environment museum located at Jean Drapeau Park with a really cool dome shaped appearance. I didn’t end up actually visiting the museum but enjoyed photographing the building while at the park. It made for some really photo opportunities!

Museum exhibits are not so numerous, but of high quality and technology. The best experience of the visit was walking on the upper observation platforms. The structure is impressive and very, very well worth making a visit to the island. It very well worth admission...More

Well we got there late and the whole area seemed completely deserted. We didn't know what the Biosphere was going to be but there was a dearth of information available wherever we looked in advance of arrival. It all seemed just a little bit tame...More

We used our MTL Passeport to get in here so did not have to pay- admission is approx $15 for an adult. Given a timetable for lectures and shows on arrival and directed to the first exhibit. The museum is all about the environment and...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,
