Aquarium du Quebec Reviews
Je déconseille l’aquarium. Cela manque d’animaux. Beaucoup d’enclos sont en en travaux donc on ne voit pas les animaux. L’aquarium fait triste. Le tunnel est minuscule. Seul point positif le pavillon ... more »I recommend the aquarium. This lack of animals. Many pens to work so it is not the animals. The aquarium makes sad. The tunnel is tiny. Only positive Pavilion with jellyfish which was nice. Access to the site is very expensive for the proposed service.
The Aquarium du Quebec is a hidden gem and well worth a visit when seeing the sites of this delightful city. The new Jellyfish Exibit defies description! more »
We went on a rainy day, thinking it would be all indoors, so we didn’t get to enjoy all of the outdoor areas and shops as much as we would have on a sunny day. The cashier did let us know that 40% of the exhibits were outdoors, so I will give them credit for notifying the guests beforehand. All-in-all this is a solid activity for kids and the price is quite reasonable ($55 taxes in for two adults and a three year old). My wife was also very impressed with the private room they had for infant feeding - one of the best she’s used.
We visited on a rainy day and they warned us that the park is 40% outside. Despite the drizzle it was an enjoyable experience. The value was good for a family of five. Active areas are available outside for children to blow off steam. Parking was free which was a really nice surprise. The animals appeared active and healthy.
