This free museum has a wide range of artefacts and exhibits, ranging from dinosaurs to rocks, mummies, pottery, and taxidermy of Canadian and African animals. Well worth a stop, and a good size for kids.

My sister is a fossil enthusiast, and this was the perfect museum for us to explore. We spent ages looking at each explanation and every exhibit. The shells, rocks, and fossils are beautiful. Yes, they have dinosaur fossils including a tiny plesiosaur, t-Rex jaws, triceratops...More

We went in the summer just to get out of the house and it was extremely hot. Maybe the AC was broken or something, but I sweat like a dog while in there. The most interesting thing is the taxidermy, mainly the bigger wilder animals...More

The displays reminded us of old London museums, a little modern but mainly Victorian. Working university scholars have offices throughout the building. This woul be a good distraction for 8-12 year olds on a hot summer day.....dinosaurs and Egyptian mummies !

It will take you only 1-2 hours to visit (if you read everything). The museum has several floors, but they are small. It's full of different things. You'll find some amazing minerals and stones, large collection of sea shells, some stuffed animals, upper floor is...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
