Decided to walk to the Biosphere and the route took us right past Habitat 67. It must be one of the weirdest buildings we have ever seen and having just been raining it didn’t look all that inviting. We did not take the tour, maybe...More
This building, made of many cubes of each 750 sq.ft., was the creation of the famous architect Moshe Sadfie who studied architecture at McGill University. This project was his doctorate thesis, about half a century ago, and has kept its very unique appeal for tourists...More
I've long been interested in this structure so was delighted when tours became available. Our guide Kathleen was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and the tour informative and interesting. I highly recommend.

I was so glad to see that the residents of Habitat 67 decided to offer tours of this wonderful site! Our incredible tour guide, Charlotte, explained the history of the buildings, the architectural structure and many other things related to background. It is a little...More
One of the highlights of my recent Canada trip! Lovely tour with a knowledgeable guide. Got the chance to see Moshe Safdie’s penthouse as part of the experience, which was fascinating. I would recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in architecture!

We are happy you enjoyed the tour! Thanks for visiting.
I knew nothing about Habitat 67 until I saw it from the waterfront in Old Montreal. I had to get a closer look and I'm really glad I did. It isn't easy to get to. My wife and I walked and, although it isn't difficult...More
Habitat 67 is amazing, both from an architectural and an engineering perspective. Moshe Safdie was only 25 years old when he designed this project for Expo 67, something extraordinary in itself. It is made up of 324 six hundred square foot concrete cubicles that provide...More

Thank you for your great review! We're glad you enjoyed your visit.
Our son wants to be an architect, so he insisted we get tickets for a tour at Habitat 67. We all really enjoyed it (especially our son). Buy your tickets online in advance as there is no office or ticket counter. They only allow 20...More

Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.

Not that I have discovered - and I went to the main tourist information office on Peel Street: they were extremely helpful telling me how I could get there by both public transport and on foot but they were unaware of any tours which take it in. It should be said that Habitation 67 is entirely residential and therefore not open to the public. Big signs surround the block as a reminder of this so there is no show flat to visit (shame: they are missing out!). I wasn't alone visiting - I noticed 2 cyclists walking round with cameras so it really does have potential as a tourist attraction. However be ready for a LONG walk to get there whether you use public transport or not and limited access to it.
