Montreal has so many incredible little gems tucked in various corners of the city and its surroundings, you just have to know where to look! Trying to find activities for a toddler is difficult, even at the best of times. We were reading a brochure and found that there was an ecomuseum zoo close to us.
This is not a massive zoo, it primarily focuses on endangered wildlife of Quebec. Since we are early risers, we always head out in the morning and arrive by opening, this usually means we get to see all the animals getting fed, and have no crowds for a toddler to get lost in.
Don’t forget to pack a picnic, there is no cafeteria in this zoo, just an open eating space. There is a specific area designated for school age children who come on field trips, and the staff are there to educate.
In the summer, you can pay for children to apprentice for a day, they walk around with a zookeeper and learn first hand about each animal. What a great idea for kids who really love animals!
cheeky little thing was chasing us to get fed!
It is primarily for younger kids, and is good for about 2 hours, maybe more depending on attention span. Many families have invested in family passes, which is recommended if you know you will be going more than 4 times a year.
