The Redpath Museum has decided to place a moratorium on all new acquisitions for a period of three years effective on Mai 1, 2022.  As the Museum enters a major planning phase of upcoming renovations, combined with a critical lack of space related to a significant growth of the collections over the past years, this measure is necessary to allow our collections team time to process all uncatalogued items and plan the reorganization of our spaces.

We thank all those who wish to donate objects or specimens and invite you to contact us when the moratorium is lifted. 

Land Acknowledgement

McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
