  • I went there on one of the last beautiful fall day. They have mainly local animals. Black bear, lynx wolves, caribous, artic foxes, but also all the birds, frogs, and snakes. I had a great time, and s...  more »

  • While small it was a beautiful zoo with some gorgeous animals! It had larger cages than many zoos I've been to which was really good to see. I wish more places were like that!
  • Like most people are saying, it's a bit pricey for admission. But at the same time, you're paying for the wellbeing of animals in need of care which makes it totally worth it. The staff seem very passionate about what they do and the animals seem to have great habitats. Great place for kids to learn about animals of Quebec.
  • I love that they are helping animals in an open area (animals aren't cramped). They've recently renovated and the whole place looks great! I also love the activities for kids for Easter. I've gone every year since I was little and I bring my baby sisters now!
  • Little neat zoo on the island of Montreal. On average visits last about two hours; one and a half hours outdoors and another thirty minutes indoors. The length of your stay will depend how long you stay to look at the animals. This Zoo is open every day all year long it only closes on December 25th.
  • Great place to bring the kids. Lots to see and not too big to get around. Not all the animals are out in the winter like the bear but still worth it. Some trails are dirt and gravel so can be a little more challenging with a stroller. Affordable admission and seasonal​ or yearly passes available as well.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
