  • The Aquarium of Quebec and to visit. The location is easy when arriving from any direction. I like to see all its kinds of animals and makes curiosity for children. The white bears are beautiful.

  • Better experience than Toronto ( Ripley aquarium) as its not so crowded, has a nice indoor eating /picnic area, nice washrooms, and outdoor walking /exhibits. The ray touching and jellyfish tanks were...  more »
  • children always like to see the different species of fish and to be able to touch the sea cucumber and the sea stars. summer we can watch the shows of seals and sea lions and go see the polar bear swim. We're going to go back again.

  • Great experience with kids of ANY age. It is the perfect size for a 2 hour experience and so reasonably priced. Highly recommend. Note, I was not aware a portion of it was outside and not dressed appropriately. So if you are going in the dead of winter like I did, dress for outdoor exhibition.
  • Really nice place. Really good species collection and really well presented. The underwater tunel is amazing. Its both outside and inside and right by the river so if you go during the winter dress warm especially if you bring kids. Its also a sanctuary so you know the admission fee is for a good cause.
  • Fun place to enjoy and learn about life underwater. Interact with sea creatures like starfish and stingray. See polar bears and arctic foxes outside. Enjoy the glowing jelly fish. Good place for a family outing
  • We went for the Festilumieres, the aquarium website showed something very different than what we encountered. The only way I can explain it is, when you drive around at Christmas time looking at houses decorated. Except that's for free and you're warm in your car. If you have young children, they will more than likely be more suited for this, but bring a sled to pull them around.
  • a nice place to visit during summer as there is a lot of outdoor activities. during winter the outdoor activities are limited but still a good place to be. my 2 years old daughter loved it.
