Perhaps the oldest museum in Montreal and still free! Love these old school natural/cultural history museums. Many fascinating displays, animal mounts, mummies, rocks.....

A delightful little museum from a time when museums were the only place the public could have access to unusual natural wonders. Small, overflowing with exhibits crammed into every corner in a way modern museums often are not, this a delightful place to spend a...More

A nice place for a short visit, but don't expect to spend hours here--the museum is pretty small. That being said, I would still recommend a visit. The Redpath Museum exhibits many quite interesting natural history exhibits. In particular, they have a display of models...More

Let me repeat, Redpath is a "Super cool natural history museum in amazing space." The Victorian woodwork and building, alone, are worth the free visit (donations encouraged). An incredible sampling of science, natural history, and ethnography in a relatively small space right on McGill's campus

What a great place--truly has the atmosphere of a well loved historical museum--and it is filled with all sorts of natural history treasures--curated stuffed animals in natural poses, collections of minerals and fossils--and many other items too diverse and numerous to sufficiently honor in this...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
