  • 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.
  • Good place for a walk and to see some wildlife. Unfortunately the animals do not have sufficient shelter on hot days and not enough room.
