Interesting displays in an old building, many dinosaur models, animals, mummies and collections. Take about 2-3 hours to see it all. Friendly staff and did not charge entry!

Found this Museum while checking out the McGill campus. Free to enter request contribution. Museum has been here since the late 1800’s. Great exhibits and presentations well worth an hour or more to look around.

Frankly we were looking to kill some time on a snowy day in Montreal and what a good little find this place was. Very quaint but very interesting and on a beautiful campus. Give it a go.
