  • We came during a time that it was closed. This actually made it better for what we wanted it for. We had saw the building when we were visiting the Casino and knew we wanted to come back in the day time to take pictures. It totally is worth taking pictures of it from the outside. It looks like a giant snowglobe from far away. It made for some epic looking pictures! If you are in the park near by this is a must stop while in Montreal. Overall, it made for the best pictures on our whole trip.
  • Very nice place. A lot to learn about environment: air and water pollution, weather condition and indoor plants. It was science day so admission was free. From the last floor of the biosphere you get an amazing view of Montréal. Around the biosphere you can walk and see amazing spots. Interesting and well organized.
  • Cool view from the inside. It was free when we went. Didn't have time to view the whole thing. Just went to the top. Looks like it would be good for families or school trips.
  • First time in Montreal and f1 race. The biosphere was free and it was great. Would love to see this place again.
  • Loved learning about our environment. You can see the city at their Lookout level and there was an engaging interactive film we watched - very interesting.
