The structure that houses—or, rather, surrounds—this museum is noteworthy enough. It’s the largest of Buckminster Fuller’s iconic geodesic domes, constructed for Expo 67. The Planet Bucky exhibit celebrates the spirit of socially conscious innovators, while the rest of the museum deals with the facts of climate change using interactive displays and testimonials from the greatly affected Inuit communities. This museum is a sight to behold and is the perfect match for environmentally conscious and curious visitors.
