The REDPATH MUSEUM is located in the central McGill campus between the Leacock Building and the Arts Building. It was built in 1882 to house the natural history collections of Sir William Dawson and to serve as a centre for teaching in the disciplines of Geology, Botany and Zoology, a role it has maintained to the present day.

The Redpath Museum is a unique, interdisciplinary facility in the university. Its biology, geology, and anthropology collections, its staff, and its teaching facilities play a vital role in undergraduate teaching and graduate training in Biology, Geology, and Anthropology. The Museum also cooperates with the Departments of Anatomy, Classics, Continuing Education, Education and Religious Studies.

The Museum's displays are open to everyone. The Redpath Museum currently has labs devoted to research in evolutionary biology and systematics.
