Spent a few hours here, enjoying looking at the various animals in their habitats and the plants. A lot of work went into creating and maintaining this place. The only thing missing is good educational signage with more information than just the name of the animal. They also need some people who work there to be present to answer questions.... More

A wonderful opportunity to experience, up close, wildlife in a very natural setting in a protected setting. There are attractions non-stop, including the adult bears who have just recovered from hibernating, the always amusing, non-stop swimming and entertaining otters, among many others. The Eco Museum is a 2 minute driving distance from McGill University Macdonald College farm and campus, itself... More

Great little animal sanctuary full of rescue animals. We went in winter and there was still plenty to see. Eight-year-old was so happy and running from exhibit to exhibit. We were also there at the end of the day and around 4:15 started to see the keepers feeding the animals and that was really cool too. It only took us... More

Used to visit this small zoo with my children when they were much younger. My daughter and I decided to reminisce and make a return visit over the Thanksgiving weekend. First of all, the cost of $16.25 was quite steep for the experience. Realize that this zoo does great work caring for injured, local animals, but the first enclosure was... More

Despite the park only containing local Quebec Wildlife, there is a lot to see and it is well worth the visit. With or without small children, it is a lot of fun and the admission price will not "break the bank".

We went out with the stroller to visit the zoo. Amazed by my daughter to see how many different animals, such as deer, raindeer, birds and fowl. Interesting to see the inside as well. Easy to walk and at your leisure.NIce bookstore for little gifts.

This is a small zoo with animals that for one reason or another can't be returned to the wild. Great care has been taken to explain the natural habitat of each animal. In English as well as French. There is also an excellent play area for children as well as an indoor picnic area. Well thought out and the animals... More
