Redpath Museum at McGill University
The Redpath Museum (Musée Redpath) was founded in 1882 in order to house the collection of artifacts and specimens gathered by geologist Sir John William Dawson, then the principal of McGill University. The museum is unapologetically and delightfully maintained as the Victorian cabinet of curiosities it originally was. Stuffed gorillas, dinosaur skeletons, mummies, shrunken heads and coral samples all share the several rooms of this small building. The Redpath Museum sits at the heart of the McGill campus, one of Canada's oldest and most prestigious universities.
