The above link is to a museum in Montreal, Canada called Biosphère. The Biosphère is a converted bio-dome from the 1967 World’s Fair which is now used as an environmental museum.
Yes, there are museums which focus on the environment. One of these museums is the California Academy of Sciences located in San Francisco, CA. The academy focuses on two questions: 1) How did life on earth develop, and 2) How will we sustain life on earth? The academy features an aquarium with 38,000 animals from around the world, the largest digital planetarium in the world, a natural history museum, a living 4-story rainforest, a cultural exhibit featuring Native American art, and a project lab where the public can view the research that is being done in the academy.
I volunteer at an interactive nature/science center which has several species of reptiles and fish on display. My specialty is the “challenge center” which hosts a collection of post-consumer pieces of plastic, cardboard, and metal which kids can use to build things. They also have a few solar energy displays.
If you are looking for a nice place to go that might be closer to home, aquatic nature centers are very common. California is absolutely bursting with them, and I suspect that there are many more around the world. Just google “(insert nearest body of water here) nature center” and see what you find!
