This museum and exhibition hall is dedicated to raising environmental and ecological awareness among its visitors. Housed in the world's largest geodesic dome, which is one of few remaining structures from Expo '67, it offers four levels of guided discovery. The bottom level examines water as both "Source of Life" and "Source of Delight", the Connections Hall showcases multimedia presentations focusing on environmental protection, and the Visions Hall affords an incredible 360 degree view of Montreal.
First off, this placce is a bit of a drive from Montreal, but people usually come to se the Saint Helene Island anyways. It is a great museum, with fantastic views of the city and of Mount Royal.

Frederick Law Olmsted, of Central Park fame, designed this park in 1876. It is easy to forget that it is
in the middle of a huge metropolis on the park's many well signposted trails: chief downtown access points are ...
Roger Taillibert's magnificent building takes a beating in the court of public opinion, but it remains Montreal's most stunning architectural
achievement. The enormous bowl features a perpetually disintegrating roof that was originally meant to be retractable, while the inclined ...
