What people are saying:

I took a quick tour of the Biosphere Environmental Museum 45 minutes before closing. The layout of the exhibition is good. The top exhibition hall is showing a plan for 14 plots of future urban planning, some of which are relatively large, such as water life in 50 years. The exhibition hall on the second floor introduces the urban pressure and countermeasures caused by the continuous holding of various large-scale public festivals in Montreal. The history of this biosphere itself is also quite interesting. It used to be the American pavilion of the World Exposition held in Montreal in 1967. It was later used for other purposes. It was covered with skin until it was burned out by a fire in 1976, but the steel structure was intact. . It reopened in 1995 as a hydrological museum and redefined as an environmental museum in 2007.

Additional Information


Designed by architect Richard Buckminster Fuller and established in 1967; Biosphere is a museum in Montreal, Quebec of Canada. The museum is housed inside the world's largest partial-spherical shell structure, better known as geodesic dome and makes you aware of the changing environmental and ecologic situation of the world. The museum has four large theme platforms that are divided into seven levels; access any of these levels through the 37-meter-long escalator or through the automated monorail system. The 'Connections Hall' and 'Visions Hall' comprise some of these levels that not only provide you a spectacular 360 degree view of the city but also present you the opportunity to participate in interactive activities and watch exhibitions related to some of the sensitive environmental issues.
