Montreal is home to many beautiful museums that are worth checking out.  But, there is only one that crams this much history into a free admission.

Montreal’s Redpath Museum is located on the McGill University campus in downtown, and you are welcome to visit whenever you like at no cost.  Developed in 1882, the Redpath Museum is Canada’s oldest building designed to be a museum.  Included are exhibits on natural history, biology, geology, and cultural heritage.

In a visit to the Redpath Museum, you can learn about everything from dinosaurs to ancient history.  There are local features that focus on Quebec’s biodiversity and geology.  This museum has everything you could hope for including Egyptian mummies, dinosaur fossils, and even a letter from Charles Darwin.

The museum is proud to offer free admission to the general public.  However, donations are always welcome.  A suggested donation would be $10 for adults and $20 for a family.  The Redpath Museum is open weekdays from 9 am to 5 pm, and during weekend days seasonally.
