We regret to inform that at this time, the Redpath Museum is not wheelchair accessible and is not equipped with escalators, elevators or access ramps. The exhibits span across three floors that can only be accessed via a staircase.

For school groups, why not bring the museum to your classroom? Our trained educators are available to come to you and deliver a hands-on workshop featuring specimens from our very own collections.

Land Acknowledgement

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