We recently met up with friends in Montreal before heading to Mont-Tremblant Ski Resort for the weekend. With only a few hours to spare while in Montreal we were able to enjoy a couple of attractions then meet up with friends to enjoy delicious dinner.
Special thanks to the Montreal Visitors Bureau for providing us with tickets in exchange for an honest review.
What an unforgettable experience there was so much to do and see. Space for Life is the world’s first ever site dedicated to both human beings and nature. Together, the Botanical Garden, Insectarium, Biodôme and Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium form the Space for Life. The largest natural science’s museum complex in Canada. The Biodôme houses over 4,500 animals from around 220 different species and 500 plant species. Its thousands of terrestrial and aquatic plants and animals make it a veritable “laboratory,” allowing researchers to study the inter-relations between organisms and the physical factors in their environments, and between organisms themselves. We enjoyed learning about animals from the Tropical, Gulf of St. Lawrence, Labrador Coast, and Sub-Antarctic Islands.
Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium uses cutting-edge technology that creates a unique experience through two complementary shows. One show focused on science, the other one was more poetic. I was fascinated by the creativity used to explain science and some of the things scientists have uncovered over the years. I was intrigued by how much I learned in such a short time. Simply breathtaking and very impressive.
Next year we’re planning to visit Space for Life and will staying an extra two days to enjoy all four attractions. I wish we had more time in Montreal I was truly pleased with our experience at the Biodome and the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium.
