Redpath Museum

The Redpath Museum lost a great friend and donor on July 30, 2017. What started with a small donation of about 200 shells in 1994 has grown into a permanent exhibit entitled "Conchologycitus - the Abe Levine Shells". Located on the second floor of the Redpath Museum it commemorates Abe Levine's life long passion and admiration to "the home wherein the Mollusc dwells".
