There's one thing in Montréal which I've always wanted to visit, and that's Buckminster Fuller's icon of 20th century architecture which contained the US Pavilion at Expo 67. It is now home to an excellent and informative exhibitions on Fuller and, being the 50th anniversary,...More

My kids enjoyed the climate change and urban environments exhibits. They do a good job of explaining at different levels and using interactive learning tools. Recommended for older kids and teens.

Well done, interactive exhibits on climate change- we biked to it and well worth the trip. Cool to be inside the biosphere too.

The exhibits at the Biosphére are sparse, but well done. The focus is on sustainable energy and design and other ecological concerns. Don't miss the interactive show; it is superb. The information skews toward older children and adults and may not offer much to smaller...More

Because of its iconic shape, why not take a stop here? It is a pretty structure and you can expect a good social media posting of your trip.

I would recommend it if you have few adults, and lots of young kids that get in free. It's nice to get onto the island. The structure is interesting to see. The displays and talks are oriented to help you understand climate change and global...More

Honestly we stumbled onto this while riding the metro. It looked really intriguing and so we thought we'd check it out. Kids we're free which was a bonus but that's about it. Our 13 yr old was pretty bored. There's not much to engage the...More

Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together
make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The
mostly man-made grounds were built to be the site of
the 1967 World's Fair, and the chiefly car-free space
still retains its inherited carnival character. A
wonderland of foliage and flora awaits at the Jardins
des Floralies, with its expanse of pond-marked
wetlands making it perfect for hiking, nature walks,
