If you're a fan of Buckminster Fuller, this was one of his ideas and it has an interesting history as the US Pavilion in the 1967 World's Fair. Exhibits inside are devoted to environmental issues and it is impressive to see how seriously Canada regards...More

Environmental issues is the main theme of this museum. Lots of hands on things to do. The 20 minute film with misty rain and snow was certainly different. Lab with microscopes and quiz sheet to analyse air and water pollution. Spread over numerous floors access...More

Parc Jean-Drapeau
The islands of Saint-Helene and Notre-Dame together
make up the anchored fabric of Parc Jean-Drapeau. The

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
