The Ecomuseum zoo: Unique – Friendly – Natural
Located on the western tip of the Island of Montreal, the Ecomuseum zoo offers its visitors a unique and natural experience. It is operated by the St. Lawrence Valley Natural History Society, a not-for-profit organization with a mission that focuses on education, research and applied conservation.
You will discover the gem of the West Island of Montreal with courteous friendly staff and intimate glimpses into the lives of more than 115 species of live animals
native to Quebec’s St. Lawrence Valley:
- Admire majestic birds of prey like eagles, red-tailed hawks and owls.
- Observe black bears, wolves, otters, caribou, porcupines and more than 110 other species in natural setting enclosures.
- Visit the “From Light to Dark” exhibit to see nocturnal animals, reptiles, amphibians and fish as they go about their evening routines – during the day!
The Ecomuseum zoo is open all year round
to allow its visitors to enjoy the beauty of its 11 hectare site.
