Coming from Orlando, I have always felt bad for the polar bears and walruses. I know they are cared for, but their environment is totally man-made. I enjoyed seeing polar bears in the snow- enjoying the single digit temperatures. An amorous male walrus entertained my...More

Smaller than some other aquariums but still a lot of fun. Many of them are located outdoors so if it’s a cold snowy day you’ll need to dress warmly.

It was a very nice visit. The Quebec City Aquarium is not just for aquatic animals. It has several buildings and displays on the property. 60% of the aquarium is indoors and 40% is outdoors. Due to a local zoo closing, it aquired some animals...More

We visited this aquarium to get out of the snow, and we came to realize that half of it is outside. We only visited the inside parts, which were nice.

They have a complete accessibility program. Please check their documentation at the bottom of their website, in the link to accessibility (sorry, Trip Advisor did not allow me to paste the link here).

We went there walking (our place was not too far and we were in the mood for walking). Google maps did a good job showing the way. To return we used Uber. It was rather easy for the driver.
