Tripsavvy's Editorial Guidelines Evelyn Reid Updated 06/06/19 Share Pin Email Yanis Ourabah / Getty Images Originally created as Expo 67's USA Pavilion circa 1967 by R. Buckminster Fuller -a gent who, once upon a time, was dubbed the world's first green architect by Sir Norman Foster- today's Montreal Biosphere is par for the theme, rather fittingly an environmental science museum, this, since its 1992 redesign which took roughly three years to complete before the repurposed landmark reopened its doors to the public in 1995, right in the heart of Parc Jean-Drapeau. Exhibit themes? Water, green technology, sustainable transportation, and other leading environmental concerns round out Biosphere exhibitions which, more often than you'd think, appeal to children courtesy of their often hands-on, family-friendly and interactive nature. In fact, what I noticed most the first time I ever visited the Montreal Biosphere was how much fun kids were having jumping on apparatus in the water exhibition room.
