Guide - Habitat 67
Following the immense success experienced since 2017 the unique guided tour of Habitat 67, the flagship project of Expo 67, will be coming back in 2023.
The guided tours are open to the public and run from Tuesday to Saturday, from May till the Fall (October or novembre, to be confirmed). Still inhabited today, Habitat 67 has fulfilled its mission: to be an example of a modern, innovative, community-based living space whose architecture and design are distinctive and representative of an era and an approach to urban development. We are looking to complete our team of guides – in French and English – as we enter a new season. Tickets will go on-sale as soon as soon as we have completed our guides team.
Following a tour plan developed and documented by professional historians, you will accompany groups of visitors to the Habitat 67 site for tours lasting approximately 90 minutes. The content of the tour covers the history of the site, its architecture and its technical features. It deals especially with the uniqueness of Habitat 67 in the context of Expo 67. Since Habitat 67 is inhabited, the quietness of the space and the residents’ privacy are your priority at all times.
Duration: May until November 2023
