Things to do at the Parc

The Biosphère: a museum committed to the environment

As a museum entirely devoted to the links between society and the environment, the Biosphère's mission is to raise citizen awareness, action, and engagement on significant environmental issues in favor of the socio-ecological transition.

Housing the United States pavilion during the Expo 67 world's fair, this architectural masterpiece was designed by noted American architect Buckminster Fuller. The Biosphère is a unique and spectacular site, located in the heart of Montréal at Parc Jean-Drapeau.

This is a place where curious minds can learn about the major environmental issues of our time and explore ways to address them. Broaden your perspectives on the environment with the Biosphère's exhibitions, and activities.

Awaken the ecocitizen slumbering inside you!
