  • Expect to see more variety of animals, the bears were hibernating and we could not see them, generally well, but I feel that I need to see more animals. I would have preferred to go at another time other than winter.

  • The tour takes about 30 minutes - 1 hour. It was very cold (-25 degrees), so we made him a little fast but it was a real pleasure. We took the stroller for baby and other visitors had the sled. The roads are well cleared. The Park is very nice, the animals are happy and protected: grand Duke, eagles, wolves (ever seen so close and they shouted what was impressive), lynx... a very nice place. We will return to the different seasons. PS: in winter the bears Hibernate.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Very fun and interesting place to take the kids, animals are well-kept museum is well-maintained may not be as action-packed and flashy as some of the bigger ones in major cities but it's nice stuff off for a local kids looking for something interesting to do. I hear you could even do birthday parties there which is pretty neat and interesting.
