There's a lot to see at the Aquarium! It took us half a day to see everything... Very well organized and the staff is great.

Our family of four, including children ages 7 and 8, loved the Aquarium! The setting is quite spectacular, with the gardens and beautiful bridge as a backdrop. We were truly impressed with how well cared-for the animals are. The show presenters were incredibly engaging. That says a lot, considering everything was in French and we are an entirely English speaking... More

This Aquarium does have some highlights, tons of Jellyfish I have never seen. They have Polar Bears .. I love Polar bears. They have Walrus and Seals always cool. Plus some typically seen things at an Aquarium. They fall short in a few areas, it's small, seems dirty and that they have not much staff to be really seen. Most... More

We are from Baltimore which has a nice aquarium, but the one in Quebec City is fantastic! We could not believe how nice this was - very clean and easy to walk around. The exhibits were spacious, and the staff very friendly. I also thought it was GREAT that the staff reprimanded children and kept everything orderly. As an example,... More

Very crowded on weekend, nothing exciting to see, grey fish in aquarium all around. Walrus and bears are fun. Overall too expensive for what it is.

Very nice marine attraction! Friendly staff and many things for families to see and enjoy. Price is good and food is enjoyable. Large playset area for small children. Shows are ok. They put on a pirate show and other shows but are mainly french and gets boring if you don't understand french. Funny to watch us Anglophones with clueless faces... More

We spend half day in the zoo and the kids had a wonderful time and so did we. The kids love the touching the ray. There is plenty of space for picnic and plenty of picnic table, play area for the kids. The site is accessible for strollers and wheelchair. Half day visit is more than enough to explore the...

Two of my friends and I decide to visit the aquarium on a day it was raining. Aparently many families had the same idea. Although it was busy we still managed to spend three hours there looking at all the exhibits including polar bears and seals who were still active despite the rain. The highlight for us were the walruses... More

Make sure you catch the early shows as they get busy (was not 50/50 French /English for the shows but signage was). Save some money and bring a picnic. There are places to stop and eat inside and in the shade outside. Also a play structure and fitness challenge.

Our family has been in Quebec city for 5 days. Both our kids love animals so this was a natural spot to go. Both our 11 and 7 year old loved it. Good exhibits, seal show was fun. Even with our lack of French, we survived. Bring your CAA card for a discount ($55 total for our family of 4).... More
