A place.  A commitment.  A movement.

Space for Life brings together on a single site the Biodôme , the Botanical Garden , the Insectarium and the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium.

These four prestigious institutions form Canada’s largest natural science museum complex. Together, they are the beginning of a daring, creative urban movement, urging everyone to rethink the connection between people and nature by cultivating a new way of living.

Space for Life draws on the complementarity, the history, the credibility, the commitment and the know-how of its four institutions. By sharing a common vision of the future, they create ınfinite possibilities.

At a time when most people now live in cities and the unprecedented challenges facing the planet are forcing us to question the way we live, Space for Life plays an essential role. With its numerous visitors, building on its rich knowledge, and as the guardian of an extraordinary heritage, Space for Life is the ideal launch pad for a citizen-based movement in favour of biodiversity.

Space for Life offers visitors a unique experience of nature, one that combines science, art and emotion, through both its day-to-day programs and its major projects.
