May 6, 2 to 5 p.m.

From soaking up the warmth in the Biodôme’s Tropical Forest to smelling the fragrances in Botanical Garden’s Rose Garden, gazing at the starry sky at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium and tasting insects at the Insectarium, science at Montréal Space for Life is also about the senses, art and emotions.

Our team is happy to welcome you and share our natural experiences with you.

We look forward to meeting you!

Meeting point:  Room P-11 at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium

Take the opportunity to grab a bite at the Planetarium’s bistro or the Biodôme restaurant. (Meals at your expense.)
1:45 p.m.:  Welcome in room P-11 of the Planetarium.

Welcome by the Director of Montréal Space for Life, followed by a tour to:

  • experience amazement thanks to digital technology at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium
  • get closer to nature in the Biodôme’s ecosystems
  • see insects differently: touch them, taste them and get involved in protecting monarch butterflies, through the Insectarium’s participatory science program

4:30 p.m.: Complete your day at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, by being the first to see our new show, Kyma, a multimedia collaboration by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium. (Length: about 30 minutes)
