“Small museum, good documentary movie”

Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre
Ranked #2 of 15 things to do in Tadoussac
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 13, 2012

The museum contains whale skeletons of various sizes, along with exhibits that describe the marine habitat of the St Laurence River and the characteristics of the marine mamamals that live/visit there, including whales, porposes and seals. There is a theater room where they show a good documentary film (15 min) about tagging and tracking whales. It is shown in English and in French at different times on the hour. The theater also has additional skeletons hanging from the ceiling and a knowlegeable guide/biologist explains the features of the skeletons. There is a reseach center upstairs. The entrance fee is somewhat expensive at $12 for adults but children under 18 are free.

With a nice setting, near the water, and with such well informed guide as the marine biologist that accommodated us, this visit was a success. we loved it!

Beautiful space, great information. The people were very helpful. The location is superb. Go down to the rocks below the museum to watch whales.

Small but VERY comprehensive. Very good video presentation (in both English and French). English "guide" book to exhibits was perfect. Great naturalists to answer questions. Conveniently located in town. If you've come to see whales...see this FIRST
