  • We visited this small zoo with my wife and my 2 year old daughter. Pretty place. Aquarium otters is awesome! The explanations of the guides are clear and precise! Accessible with a stroller.

  • Three adults and a senior. $62. Felt quite a bit overpriced for what we saw. Signage lacking, and few staff and volunteers to explain the exhibits and how to get the most from our visit. Value was abo...  more »
  • An easy 20-30 minute drive from the center of Montreal. At a leisurely pace we were able to explore fully in 2.5 hours. The animals are comfortable with visitors, so it gave us the chance to see them ...  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.
