We went to visit McGill University’s Redpath Museum and we were pleasantly surprised. The admission is by donation (they suggest $10 per person, which is fair). They had exhibits on dinosaurs, water species, Egyptian artefacts, minerals, etc. It was an interesting visit and i recommend...More

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.

Think of this like a cabinet of curiosities. An eclectic mix of sciences, arts, and social sciences. It whets your appetite, providing enough information to win in a trivia game, and allows you to slip away a couple of hours, in pursuit of nothing. A...More

This is a lovely, relatively small, museum that is part of the McGill university. It doesn't have a mandatory entry fee, but asks for a $10 donation. The museum is made up of 2 main floors, and a third smaller floor. The highlights are the...More

The dinosaur skeleton was the thing that drew me to the museum in the first place. There are many such skeletal remains of prehistoric creatures. There is a separate mummy section and a separate section having preserved stones and rocks. The museum has 3 storeys...More

This may not be for everyone - fossils, natural history - but for those who are interested, this museum is a gem. On the campus of McGill, which is interesting itself, if you are curious about our world, this will be appealing. A previous reviewer...More

The small size makes it perfect for a 1-2 hour visit. Geology, paleontology, and local biodiversity are the main topics that really sparked our interest. Can definitely recommend this gem of a museum!

I stopped counting the amount of stairs after the 16 at the front entrance. This aged museum, although housing some interesting exhibits, is in desperate need of a renovation, let alone a good dusting. The inside of cabinets had layers of dust and cobwebs were...More

Located in the McGill University, this museum gives a view of fossils, precious stones, mummies, evolution of human races over time. Stipulated time of visit is around 1 - 2 hours. Definitely worth a visit when in Montreal.
