Rutherford Museum

Ernest Rutherford's work at McGill earned him the 1908 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and today our Rutherford Museum preserves the custom-made tools he used to revolutionize our understanding of the atom. During his nine years here, Rutherford advanced theories on radioactivity, alpha rays, and radioactive transformation.
