I went there expecting to see some exotic animals. What I got was mostly ordinary aquariums with grey fishes that swim in the saint laurent river right next to the aquarium du Quebec. Enterance was not cheap and I was disappointed. There are some seal in a tiny outside pool. Aquariums inside of the building are just boring and plain.

I highly recommend this aquarium for anyone traveling with youngsters. The aquarium is more like a campus with tons of outdoor wildlife, as well as indoor animal exhibits. Additionally, there is a playground with obstacle course and play/splash fountains. If you go in the summer, your little ones can bring their bathing suits to play in the fountains. They'll have...

The aquarium is laid out 60% inside and 40% inside. The exhibits are generally well kept with the exception of the polar bears, walruses and seals pools. Those pools were rusted and extremely cramped. They have a decent variety of aquatic animals but there is not much to do if you're not a family with small children.

We were at the gate at 9am and had time to do the main aquarium building before the seal show. A quick break and check out the polar bears and it was time for the walrus show. We all loved it and learned a lot.

I loved everything about the experience! It was fun and made me feel like a kid again! The interactive animation with the pirates before each show of either the walrus or ses was silly but also enjoyable and put a smile on everyone's fave regardless of your age!

This is a wonderful aquarium, park, and zoo. It is in a relaxed natural environment overlooking the river. We loved the opportunity to see animals both indoors and outdoors. It is a very child-friendly place with playgrounds and numerous picnic spots. We especially loved the active sea animals and polar bears in the outside exhibits.
