#10 of 65 in Museums in Montreal
Delve into a wealth of history at Musee Redpath, the oldest museum in Canada, showcasing natural history. Completed in 1882, it originally housed the collection of the then Principal of the Mcgill University, and remains an academic unit of the institution. Broadening its collection, the museum now houses extensive archives of palaeontology, zoology, mineralogy and ethnology-- the latter remaining one of the oldest collections in North America. Across three floors, discover a diverse, expansive range of displays, from a 1,200 piece gem quality shell collection, to New Kingdom Egyptian mummies circa 1500 BCE. Put Musee Redpath and other Montreal attractions into our Montreal attractions planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful building within the McGill University campus with a treasure trove of very interesting displays and exhibits with much variety. Great place to visit! Not too big but still much to see...  more »

  • A total gem in Montreal. Exploring the museum feels like visiting Indiana Jones' home. From mummies to dinosaurs to enormous crabs, this place has it all. The size is such that you can easily fit it into your day and enjoy every exhibit. Our 3.5 year old daughter loved it, running about and finding new wonders to be excited for. Well worth the suggested donation and then some!
  • Took my 6 year old there today and she loves it !!! She even got to make a mask .. the scenery outside is breathtaking. A perfect place for a relaxing outing
