Kids always love this kind of activity. A nice place to spend the day, have a picnic. Water park and playground outside for kids to spend their energy. Lots of interactive activities, kids can touch starfish, and other creatures. The underwater tunnel is a must-see.

There is lots to see. It did not take us long to go through - maybe 2 hours when we had planned a 4 hour stay. I would think that in the summer 4 hours would be more reasonable given the splash park for the kids and you could pack a lunch.
The children most enjoyed the outdoor enclosures with the polar bears and seals - more interactive for them I think they were just a little young to just look through glass at swimming creatures all day.
We may go back but it wouldn't be until children over 8.

I didn't know it existed until recently, and will now talk about it for years to come. My kids, 2 boys aged 2 and 4, absolutely loved it. There were so many things to see, from the walrus, to the polar bears, to the harp seals, the tigers and the beautiful colourful fish. We enjoyed some shows, which were scheduled throughout the day and some relaxing moments by the waterfront where boats of all shapes and sizes were passing by. And when it got a little too hot, and the kids got tired, they went to the water playground, where we were all able to cool down. Don't forget to bring a swim suit and towel for the kids, because they will get wet!

The place was fun, but I think it might have been more fun to visit in summer when it's not cold. Some of the attractions where missing, I guess it's because of weather problems.

My husband, my 3 year old and I visited the aquarium and had a great time.

Our top 3 activites :
1. Jelly fish aquariums (black aquariums with jelly fishes that change color)
2. Petting the rays (soft, their dart is cut so no worries)
3. Finding Nemo species

The location is great, so as the kids menu. We appreciated our winter visit but since there is a lot to do outside (kids park, small trails etc.) we would come back and visit it in the summer or fall.
