What To Expect
Admire the Montreal region and the St. Lawrence valley at the summit of the Olympic Park Tower. Standing at 165 meters high, its 45 degree angle is dramatic.
A common question is how can a structure with an incline like the Olympic Park Tower actually find balance? The answer to the enigma lies in the ratio of its mass: the top of the tower is a mass of 8000 tons which is permanently attached to the infrastructure and to the solid concrete implanted ten meters below ground level that has a mass of 145,000 tons, the equivalent of three aircraft carriers!
You can access the top of the Tower on a mesmerizing climb in a glass encased funicular that can hold up to 76 passengers. This funicular is also the only one in the world that works on a curbed structure; a hydraulic system that allows the cabin to remain horizontal during the two minute rise to the top.
Plus choose to visit one, two, three or all of the Space for Life attractions below:
The Biodome, whose name means "house of life", shows visitors the "true nature" of the Americas, by offering up their loveliest and most amazing ecosystems.
The Montreal Botanical Garden, one of the city's jewels, is recognized as one of the world's greatest botanical gardens. It offers a colourful program of events, exhibitions and activities all year long. The Montreal Insectarium, which is considered North America's largest insect museum, celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2010. A favourite of children, the museum is home to some 160,000 specimens of living and naturalized insects, an anthill, a bumblebee hive, a honeybee hive, and many other exciting vivariums.
