History of the Peter Redpath Museum
Making a donation
The public programme is not supported by the university, and is made possible only by the generous donations of our supporters. The collections that form the basis of our public exhibits, and also of teaching and research at the Museum, are the accumulation of donations of objects over the last hundred years, and their health and growth depend on a continuing stream of donations.
The Student Club is involved with the Redpath Museum in many different ways. It gives tours on Sundays, plans and coordinates lecture and movie series, visits different elementary schools and teaches the students about different things from the museum, and much more. It maintains a close link with staff and faculty of the museum, as well as the "Friends of Museum" group.
