We expected a lot more after seeing the advertisements. Maybe it would be better in the summer with the water park and picnic area open and maybe it would be more enjoyable for children. We were looking forward to much larger aquariums with a larger selection of aquatic species. They also had some seals, walruses and two polar bears. They... More

Super place to take the kids in North Americas oldest city. Tons of history in .quebec but they have taken the time to think of families. Kids loved it , polar bears and seals especially. Great inside parts, got to touch lots of things...well the kids did, I opted out!

What a great experience. It was fantastic to see the Polar Bears, Walrus's, Owls, Manta Ray's, and different types of jelly fish. The atmosphere was first class.

We spent longer here than we expected. The indoor parts were nice and we enjoyed the touch tanks. The staff were friendly and bilingual. The shows are all presented in French but they are willing to answer questions after in English. The polar bear show was cute and fun! My daughter enjoyed the playground and ropes course. We bought sandwiches... More

Great family activity, and a break from the history and shopping. The polar bears and walrus were especially entertaining, engaging with the visitors. There are shows at the seal and walrus areas, but only in French.

The addition of outdoor display areas featuring polar bears, walrus, seals, and other wildlife make this almost like visiting a zoo. Worth a visit for kids and adults alike!

Visited over Easter weekend. This is a great aquarium with an excellent variety of creatures. I enjoyed the combination of indoor and indoor spaces. The polar bears alone are worth the visit in my book! Kids had a blast, they still talk about being able to touch the stingrays. The jellyfish exhibit is incredibly beautiful.

We always stop here on our way through Quebec City. Easy to drive to, it's a great activity for any age. The inside is 3 levels, including a glass tunnel to walk 'underwater'. There is a touch pool, too. The outside is even better with polar bears, walrus, seals, sea lions, a gorgeous garden with walking paths, and even a... More

The Aquarium is more than just fish. There is a small section where you walk under the fish and it is very small compared to most aquariums we have been to. So at first I was a little disappointed but then you start exploring and find out that there is so much more to see... They also offer another 3... More
