Anyone who loves making beautiful discoveries will be thrilled to visit Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal! The park is home to the Biosphere, a one-of-a-kind museum that presents a host of original exhibits, both indoors and outdoors. Its unusual but impressive spherical design has been a key feature on Sainte-Hélène Island since Expo 67. Now home to the Biosphere Environment Museum, it is a tribute to architect Buckminster Fuller, a pioneer in the field of sustainable development. Don’t miss the three new exhibitions, created specially to mark three milestones: Montreal’s 375th anniversary, The 150th anniversary of Confederation and the 50th anniversary of Expo 67.

Echo 67 – A trip back in time

The Biosphere is one of the few architectural remains of the 1967 Universal and International Exhibition, which put Montreal on the map and brought the world to Quebec. Echo 67 is a collection of old objects, powerful pictures and rich testimonies that let visitors explore this fascinating time. Until October 29, 2017, anyone who happens to have held onto their original Expo 67 passport will get free admission! Just show it at the ticket office.
