“heart of the city”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I worked many years at this university.
The campus is right downtown close to restaurants, shopping and great night life. McGill has well laid-out gardens and friendly students. The various buildings are open to the public. Do visit the Redpath Museum, within view of the main gate. It is FREE and offers a lot for young and old alike.

“Interesting campus”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

A nice mix of old and new buildings and very close to Mount Royal so you can walk through the campus on the way there.

“Worth a visit to this gem of the north!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

McGill is an incredibly diverse place with students from around the world. The campus is right in the center of Montreal, with a beautiful gated yard. It's perfect for a walk around and there a number of places to stop for a coffee along the way.

“Redpath Museum”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

This museum was perfect for a group of little kids. My children loved the variety (fossils, dinosaur bones, mummies) in the realtively small space that was doable in under 1.5 hours. Would highly recommend

“Best university ever!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Okay -- I may be biased here. But McGill campus is beautiful and historical, and it's nice to just walk around in it.

As a tip, they have free tours and they are fun! Sign up online. I think if you google McGill Discovery Tours you should find something.
