The Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, located near the Biodôme of Montreal, offers a unique way to explore the universe of the sky.

 

The adventure starts in a spherical room with chairs and bean bags surrounding a projecting ball. The immersive light show paired with narration brings the visitors through space and time in a very interesting way.  Following the light show is an exhibition room, with many interactive activities and the largest meteorites collection in Quebec.

 

The shows are given in English and French. Consult the official website for the schedule.
