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!

Mobility

Getting to Biosphère, Environment Museum

To make it easier to get around, here is the exact location of the Biosphere at Parc Jean-Drapeau posted on Google Maps.

Subway Station

The Jean-Drapeau subway station is located on Île Sainte-Hélène, in the heart of Parc Jean-Drapeau. To get to the Parc easily and quickly, the subway is still the best way to go!

River shuttle

During the summer season, Parc Jean-Drapeau visitors can use the river shuttle as a means of transportation, from the Vieux-Port de Montréal (Jacques-Cartier pier) and the city of Longueuil.

Users can also bring along their bikes and they have access to a network of cycling paths at each stop.

STM shuttle

Three STM shuttles provide a connection between the Jean-Drapeau subway station and various attractions:

  • 767 (summer season only)
  • 768 (summer season only)
  • 777 (every day of the year)
    • Jean-Drapeau Subway Station
