Lots of Ways to Enjoy March Break – Naturally!
Montréal Space for Life invites visitors of all ages to come enjoy a delightful March Break in a stress-free setting in harmony with the butterflies, reptiles, amphibians, birds and stars.
At the Biodôme,
From March4 to May 22
The reptiles, amphibians and birds at the Biodôme may be spared our harsh Quebec winters, but they’re just as eager as we are for spring to arrive. Visitors can take their time and admire the western chorus frogs, toads, wood turtles and lots of other species featured in this exhibition. And there’s more! If they’re here from March 4 to 19, they can try their hand at our I Spy Challenge, and attempt to spot the some 250 animal species living in the five ecosystems of the Americas at the Biodôme.
At the Botanical Garden,
From February 23 to April 30
All around the visitors, more than 1,500 butterflies of about fifty different species flit about, browsing from one flower to the next. The warmth, lush greenery and graceful ballet invite everyone to breathe deeply and relax. The Insectarium team, which mounted the exhibition and reproduced the butterflies’ natural environment, will be on hand to answer visitors’ many questions and spark youngsters’ curiosity.
At the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium,
From February 10 to April 17
Can Mira, the little star, escape the nasty Algol, who’s trying to catch her lovely sparkling light? That’s what kids will love finding out as they watch this new immersive musical theatre show designed specially for ages 4 to 8. Older visitors (ages 7+) are bound to be fascinated by the double feature We Are Stars / One Day… on Mars, taking them off in search of the secrets of the Universe and the Red Planet.
At the Insectarium, see the insects up close and collect some great specimens as a family with the Génial! at the Insectarium app.
