I was excited to go to a small and free university museum. I was blown away. It was larger than I thought it would be and had a very diverse collection of artifacts. My favourite part was the Quebec biodiversity exhibits on the second floor....More

Perfect for people interested in Fossils, a Mummy, dinosaurs, geodes who have some time to spare but not a lot. Plus it's free, so why not?

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.

This is a small museum, but definitely with a visit. We went with our son (17) and nephew (9), and had a great time exploring the collection.

Inside McGill University, this museum is free admission but suggested donation. It is like a natural history museum but why not pay a visit?

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
