Aquarium du Québec


Open in the winter


Dive into the sea, in Québec City. Come and meet the 10,000 marine animals that inhabit the Aquarium: fish, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, and sea mammals. Among them, polar bear, walruses, and seals will provide you with unique moments. Watch them when they're feeding or being trained. A fascinating experience for young and old alike! This huge site (16 hectares) has superbly laid out areas indoors and outdoors. In summer, take the opportunity to picnic, cool off with water games, and try out the safe and secure, child-friendly Tree-to-Tree circuit. In winter, take advantage of our indoor facilities to enjoy a hot meal and of our outdoor trails to admire the St. Lawrence River and our marine mammals. In addition, for winter evenings, a half-a-million-LED illuminated walk is sure to enchant you, all part of our Festi Lumière extravaganza, lasting from December to March.

Open every day! Consult our operating hours.
