Enchantment and education
Whales have fascinated mankind since the earliest of times. Nourishing and perpetuating this fascination is what drives our team. Whether at the museum or on the Internet, we combine research and education to share the most up-to-date knowledge available. Our messages are simple and often humorous, yet always scientifically accurate and conservation-oriented.
Marine Mammal Interpretation Center (CIMM)
The CIMM is the most popular museum in the Côte-Nord region, receiving nearly 30,000 visitors a year. It’s an unforgettable experience! Come face to face with a 13-metre long sperm whale and explore the world of whales through original videos, cetacean acoustics activities, games, a skeleton collection and an exclusive film. Specialists are on hand to answer your questions, and the purchases you make at the boutique will contribute to funding whale research projects.
