Established in 1882, the Redpath Museum preserves and displays impressive collections that show the diversity of our biological, geological and cultural heritage. Among the vast collections of paleontology, zoology, and mineralogy, discover spectacular specimens such as the dinosaur skeletons displayed in the natural history gallery. The World Cultures gallery features artifacts from the Americas, the Mediterranean region, Asia, Oceania and Africa, including an important collection from Ancient Egypt. The Redpath Museum is the oldest building in Canada built as a museum. As an independent unit, it is attached to the Faculty of Science of McGill University.
