    Fascinating Museum
    This museum is free which is a plus for people with kids. It was a warm day when we visited and I don’t think they have air conditioning so keep this in mind when you plan a visit. There is so much to see and enjoy. The taxidermy animals and dinosaur skeletons were my favorites. The building is beautiful as well.

    Inside McGill University
    This museum is inside McGill University and it is free. There is no AC in there. It is small, three floors and it was nice for people of all ages. I didn't see an elevator but the stairs are going up. A lot of stuff to see in a small place. I would recommend it especially since it was free

    Wonderful historic museum
    Wonderful museum to spend a few hours in. Good for both kids and adults. A throw back museum that is focused on the exhibits without electronics. Great in general but especially when the weather is cold and nasty

The museum is centrally located on the McGill University campus and is close to the Métro, the fine arts museum, some bookstores and other shopping, and many dining options. The First Nations exhibits were the high point (at least to me), and it was nice that some of the information captions were in the indigenous languages as well as in French and English.

It's in the heart of the city and the heart of the campus. I love that it was free. It is a small museum with artifacts well present. We probably spent about an hour in there and enjoyed our visit.

Picture a fully-featured museum of natural history ... and then condense it down to its absolute essence ... and the result is the Redpath. Even the walk towards it is a marvel. Definitely a museum worth seeing!

Amazing collection of stones, fossils, and shells! Everything is really well explained and the ticket is free. One of the best museums in Montreal!

Not clear on their website and museum pass still sells tickets but the place is closed, as far as I know since COVID. If you made the trip here as we did, I suggest you visit the Rutherford collection at the university. You need to call 514-398-7030 to get a tour though.

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! Mummies, dinosaurs, extinct animals, fossils and minerals are some of the interesting exhibits they have for showcase

I went here with a friend and I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it! Not too short, not too long, very well designed and interesting exhibits.
