#11 of 64 in Museums in Montreal
Immerse yourself in numerous exhibits exploring humankind's relationship to the environment at Biosphere, housed in a geodesic dome designed by world-renowned architect Buckminster Fuller. The verdant island setting puts nature at the forefront as you explore exhibits on climate, meteorology, and sustainable development. Interactive displays create a fun and educational space for children and adults alike. The dome itself was originally part of Expo 67, the most successful World's Fair of the 20th century. This important piece of architectural history stands at 61 m (200 ft) tall, with a spherical diameter of 76 m (250 ft).
