The Montreal Botanical Garden offers highly colourful all-season programming featuring events, exhibitions, and conferences. Opened June 9, 1931 by Brother Marie-Victorin and architect Henry Teuscher, it covers nearly 75 hectares.
With its collection of 22,000 plant species and cultivars, ten exhibition greenhouses, the Frédéric-Back House of Trees and 20 themed gardens, such as the Chinese garden, the rose garden, and the undergrowth garden, it is also the perfect place to stock up on fresh air. Located just minutes from downtown Montreal, near the Biodome and the Olympic Park, the Montreal Botanical Garden includes plants from around the globe.
While waiting for the Insectarium and the Biodome – undergoing renovation – to reopen, pay a visit to the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, inaugurated in 1966 and totally modernised in 2013. It boasts an innovative approach in terms of architecture, technology and visitor experience. At the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, you will bend the limits of both time and space.
