The museum itself seems a bit cluttered but it is absolutely gorgeous. It feels a bit like travelling back in time to the 1890s. The museum does have a lot information, even though presented in an old-fashioned way. It's honestly one of the most beautiful...More

the three star rating is probably not indicative. of how charming and quirky we found this little museum, but it does pale by comparison to some of the bigger and better museums in Montreal. Still, it's totally free, and you can spend an hour or...More

Free museum, donations accepted. Mostly natural history but other stuff mixed in. The seashell collection is wonderful.

My kids love coming to see all the cool displays. Especially the dinosaur bones! It is a fun educational place and best of all, it’s free!

While a bit on the small side, the Redpath is a great, old timey museum in Montreal. Not expensive to get in, usually a donation works fine, it's full of mummies, dinosaurs and other cultural bits. It's a bit on the small side, which prevents...More

I brought my 6 year old on her day off. She liked it! It's a small museum but they do have beautiful collections and displays which is just the right amount for a kid and also good for adults.
