We spent the afternoon at the aquarium which was 60% inside tour, 40% outside. The cost was about 20$ each for me and my wife. Took us about 2.5 hrs to navigate the groups and all indoor activities. The aquarium for highlights has polar bears, walrus, seal's, and a whole section on Jelly fish which is pretty nice to experience.... More

Had been wanting to go to the aquarium for some time with my daughter. It isn't a big installation but still quite a nice aquarium. The price is a little high to get in but then again to support good staff and the comfort of these animals it is worth the spending. I loved the tunnel under the deep ocean... More

The aquarium was close to our hotel so one afternoon with time to spare, we decided to go. I can't recall the amount paid to get in but it seemed fairly significant for two adults. The jellyfish were neat to see. While we were there a children's attraction with "pirates" were presenting. We just walked past that area, although spent... More

We visited on a very cold wintery day, but it was totally worth it. Not only did we get to watch one of the polar bears play with its toys for a good half hour or more, but the jellyfish and seahorse displays were outstanding! If we ever return to Quebec, we would definitely include another visit to this interesting... More

Let me begin by saying that it is very expensive to get into the aquarium. It cost my wife and $42. I'm very torn on what to say about the place. The place was very interesting and gave you a good introduction worth of information about every creature they have there. There are a lot of interactive options as well.... More

Visited the aquarium upon recommendation of hotel staff. This was basically last on our agenda. Easily accessible area and ample parking space. Ticket staff were friendly and even suggested we take advantage of group rates and the AAA discount. We were not expecting to see much due to the cold weather, but were still entertained by the walruses and seals.... More

Not recommended for kids in the winter, Kids complained about all the walking outdoors to get from place to place especially in freezing weather. Not satisfied with value for money $60 for 2 adults and 1 child. Walrus, seals, and polar bears were amazing, ocean colorful fish were adorable. Good location just off the highway.

This is a run down "attraction" with not much to see. Shows were outdoors in the cold, and in French only. The tanks inside were a bit dirty and dingy looking and there was not a very impressive diversity of marine life. The plaques told the name of the fish, but not many fun facts. Although this is a small... More

My kids loved this aquarium. We have been to several others and this was probably one of the simpler, lower tech ones but it was much more fun. Good selection of fish even if the aquarium is on the smaller side. Nice outdoor playground, nice view of the St. Lawrence and the bridge - all fun for children. It's cold... More
