Indoor Activities

The Redpath Museum is a great place to visit. It is situated at the McGill Campus building and it currently displays a wide collection of items in various fields such as ethnology, mineralogy, zoology and palaeontology. At this destination, there are several family fun activities that attract minimal charges. However, for those who would specifically like to pay a visit to the collections, the admission is free.

The collection available at the Montreal Museum is amazing. The admission fee to the temporary exhibits is half the normal charge after 5.00 pm on Wednesdays. Take note that there is no charge for visiting the regular collection. Also, the admission at Montreal’s Musee d’art contemporain is free from 6.00pm to 9.00 pm on Wednesdays.
