The Biosphere has reopened its doors

The Biosphere

The Biosphere, the museum dedicated to establishing links to society and the environment, so that humans can get closer to nature and take action towards it conservation and preservation, has just reopened its doors to the public after it was shut down due to the COVID pandemic.

On August 12, a special ceremony took place to mark the reopening of the Biosphere. Present at this event were Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante; Federal MP for Honore-Mercier, Government House Leader and Quebec Lieutenant Pablo Rodriguez; MNA for Bourget and Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Richard Campeau; Acting Director of Montreal Space for Life Julie Jodoin; and Biosphere Director Isabelle St. Germain.

“At Montreal Space for Life, the Biosphere will be able to increase its impact in the ecological transition while carrying out a mission that is directly in line with the priorities of our administration,” said Mayor Plante.

The Biosphere

Housed in Buckminster Fuller’s famous Geodesic Dome, which also served as the site of the U.S. Pavilion during Expo 67, the Biosphere – which has been in operation since 1995 – has introduced three new exhibits to its existing collection of exhibits for the entire family to enjoy and experience. “Colours of the World”, an outdoor exhibition of 50 photos provided by the National Geographic that displays and celebrates the use of colour in photography and the planet’s diversity; “Species Without Borders”, which examines how Canada and the U.S. are working together to protect its animals and their respective habitats; “Ecolab”, an interactive laboratory for budding young scientists where they test a number of hypotheses dealing with air and water pollution.

The Biosphere

Other Biosphere exhibits that are not to be missed include “MTL +”, in which a number of prominent architects share their no-holds-barred visions of what they would like to see Montreal’s future infrastructure over the next 50 years; “Design the Future”, a 360-degree immersive show inspired by Buckminster Fuller that invites viewers to experience moments in nature and the research projects that arise from them; and a salute to the glorious memories of Expo 67, as seen through rare artifacts and photos.
