Montreal Planetarium Admission

For over 45 years, the Montréal Planetarium shared its passion for the sky and stars with its visitors, young and old. Today, the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, located close to the Biodôme, offers a completely fresh experience of astronomy.

Its arrival marks a defining moment in the consolidation of the Space for Life, the world’s first ever site dedicated to both human beings and nature. Together, the Botanical Garden, Insectarium, Biodôme and Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium form the Space for Life, the largest natural sciences museum complex in Canada.

With its bold design, the new Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium incorporates the strictest sustainable development criteria. It uses cutting-edge technology to create a unique experience of the universe through two complementary shows – one focused on science, the other more whimsical. Its exhibition, Exo: Our Search for Life in the Universe, enriches this cosmic journey.

A true pioneer in the field, the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium redefines the very essence of planetariums through its original and innovative approach to astronomy.
