Housed in the oldest purpose-built Canadian museum, the Redpath holds large collections of ancient and modern artifacts and specimens. Some collections were started by the same people whose work is at the heart of the Smithsonian and Royal Ontario museums. Popular items include dinosaurs, mummies, and a wide variety of Quebec minerals (there’s even a shrunken head).

Redpath Museum also offers a year-round public program jam-packed with exciting events, including documentary films, special lectures, discovery workshops, scavenger hunts for families, and much more!

Group visits are available for all kinds of visitors, both inside and outside the museum.
