  • This was a pleasant surprise on a recent trip to MTL. We didn’t know about this zoo and when we saw the Biodome was closed, we decided to visit here instead and were very happy. Good variety of animal...  more »
  • We visited in the winter and it was cold but we loved the fact that the animals are in their natural environnement and outdoors. Make sure you dress up warmly because there is some walking to do. Anot...  more »

  • Very good prices, good variety, I seldom go there. You can find stuff that you cannot find in Europe. Good quality stuff! I would go there every time in the future for all their products as they are very good. Every time I go there I take the special of the day which is good all time, winter and summer, especially in the eveningk when the parking is available.
  • What can I say about the Ecomuseum that hasn't already been said? The Ecomuseum is an absolutely wonderful place. From the wonderfully charming staff to the way the animals are evidently living the best lives they possibly could be given, every inch of this place is incredible. I've been coming here with my family since I first moved here from the UK in 2000 and I fully intend on bringing my own children here one day when I have them.
  • Fun little zoo. I liked the focus on species of Canada as opposed to from all over the world -- fun to see how much variety there is right around us. In the winter, some favorite animals were hibernating, but you can't blame the zoo for that. The arctic foxes and wolves are fun to watch.
  • Had a magnificent chat with a zookeeper - such a privilege to have heard his terrific stories! Stuff like when to visit the otters, how old the bald eagle is, and what helped determine the sex of the golden eagle... You owe your kids a visit if you live on the island of Montreal.
  • A great place to visit on a warm winter afternoon with the family. The kids had a wonderful time. This place has been upgraded significantly since I went last time as a child, so it was a real surprise how far it has come. Highly recommended.
