For everyone who is interested in geological and life history, especially with children.

Love this amazing fossil site and the visitor centre is impressive with plenty of fossils on exhibit and great interpretation. Rather overly loud tour guide was annoying as she brought each new group through...you could hear her from one end of the exhibits to the other so it was hard to concentrate during our visit.

Actually we only visited the gift store because it was too expensive to go in for just a quick visit. We only had about 20 minutes. Why are there not enough tax dollars to allow free entrances. It seems there is allot of corporate interest in the national parks of Quebec. Things that make you go hmmmm.

It's an UNESCO world heritage site. They have good bilingual guided tours, have stuff to entertain little kids. Not a huge site but quite interesting.
