By popular demand, we are presenting our Virtual Tour once again!

Join us for a guided walking tour of the fossils hidden in the walls of some of downtown Montreal's proudest institutions.

The virtual tour is accessible via ArcGIS StoryMaps on your phone, tablet or desktop. Livestream narration with Meghomita Das (Ph.D. candidate, Dept. of Earth and Planetary Sciences), this one hour tour starts at the geological rock garden outside the Redpath Museum and ends with the old red sandstones weathering on the walls of the Maison Peter Lyall.
