What’s this? Insects among our marine animals and our fish? From Friday, April 21 to Sunday, April 23, 2017, nearly 10,000 naturalized or living specimens will invade the Aquarium for the third edition of the Insect Festival, presented by Desjardins and La Bibitte Mobile.

Come inside our butterfly aviary or handle a tarantula or a praying mantis! Those who are really brave can even visit our scorpion chamber! Take advantage of the various booths offering tastings of all sorts of insect varieties. Entomological material and naturalized insects will also be available on site, so you can start or complete a magnificent collection.

An additional activity is included with the daily entry fee.
