Since 1995, it has been home to exhibitions, permanent and temporary, that are geared toward educating people about major environmental issues. Its interactive exhibits help those of all ages better understand the profound effects of climate change and provides information on how to make a lighter footprint on this Earth.
Such exhibits as "+1 Degree Celsius: What Difference Does it Make?" uses an interactive digital Earth globe and short films to demonstrate the science behind climate change.
Another exhibit, "Finding Balance", looks at how our consumer habits shape the environment while a temporary exhibit, "Water Wonders!", takes a fun spin on all things H2O with games and experiments for guests to tackle.
Several temporary exhibits are introduced each year to the Biosphere so it's a great attraction to bring the family to time and time again.
The Montreal Biosphere is located in Parc Jean-Drapeau. Coming by metro, take the Yellow line to Jean-Drapeau station and walk 2 minutes to the sphere. By bike, from the South Shore of Montreal or downtown, take the bike path on Jacques-Cartier Bridge. From the Old Port of Montreal, take the Concorde Bridge.
