McGill University’s Redpath Museum displays a diverse collection of fossils and skeletons from plants and animals uncovered from around the world. Equally impressive are the 16,000 geological items and 17,000 archeological artifacts. Especially popular are the dinosaurs and mummies. The natural history museum was founded in 1880 after a generous donation by wealthy philanthropist Peter Redpath. This 1882 Greek Revival building at McGill University is Canada’s oldest building designed as a museum.
