The Biosphere

The institution fosters a dialogue between science, culture, social innovation and the environment since 1995. As the only environment museum in North America, the Biosphere's mission is to raise citizen awareness, action, and engagement in environmental issues. The museum offers a dozen exhibits and guided activities.
