For a 20min video in French and a bit on the history of the research being done, $12+ tax is not worth it. The statues of the whales outside is pretty cool and the curio shop has some nice other types of souvenirs

Facing the secluded inlet behind, we abandoned our rental bikes behind the grey museum and visited the Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre--hidden with parking beyond the pink boutique that faces the dock. We learned two blue whales were spotted that day in the area. Tucked below...More

The building is small but the exhibits are fun and informative and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Don't miss it! Staff can tell you about best places to view whales in Tadoussac and surrounding area.
