Tiny Tadoussac, a Quebecois village of fewer than 900 inhabitants on the St. Lawrence River, is renowned as a whale watching destination. Tours are readily available to see the vast creatures feast on krill in the St. Lawrence and to explore the stunning Saguenay fjord, but you can often spot whales from the shore. The oldest surviving French settlement in the Americas, Tadoussac has a slew of national parks within easy reach. There is a frequent free ferry service across the Saguenay River.

The exhibit in one room has been totally revamped, and just reopened in 2020. All the description narratives are in French, but you should not miss it even if you don’t speak French. Normally, English speaking visitors would have been provided with a tablet, then follow all the numbered stops. All the stands are thoroughly cleaned every hour. If you have questions, there always is a guide/researcher present for you. I had all my dozen stocked-up questions clarified! The exhibit is simply marvelous and instructive. The CIMM has complete skeletons of all the kinds of whales that are frequent visitors to the St-Lawrence River, except for the Blue Whale where a pair of ribs is put over the entrance. Unfortunately, these came from beloved deceased mammals. Explanations are a static or interactive. When the lights are turned off for the focused light show, the guide give you a tour of the types of whale, one by one. I liked it! I think kids of all ages would like the exhibit. I have seen the first exhibit about 10 years ago. This is so much more beautiful and interesting. It is a must see! Go and encourage them.

Free one-way trail (although you will encounter idiots who must go the opposite way) around the tip of the mouth of the Saguenay river. Very well laid out information panels around the way will tell you about the historic significance of the very first trading post that became what is known today as Tadoussac. Takes about one hour if you read all panels and stay on the rocks to spot some whales with the whale watchers. Ends up in the Tadoussac harbour.
