    It was free! Located on McGill Uni campus, this very interesting and eclectic museum had free admission. There was a little bit of everything there...unfortunately, I was so tired after crawling up Mont Royal in the heat and humidity, I almost fell asleep in a chair. And we were able to duck a very abrupt rain storm that hit about 10 min after we went in. I should have taken more photos. There was dinosaur stuff, and some Egyptian stuff, just a great mix.

    Chilling out on the campus of McGill University

    The campus of McGill University is a gem in the heart of downtown Montreal. The campus is on the south side of Mount Royal...just north of Sherbrooke Street. It is really worth checking out. Walk through the Roddick Gates and explore. The architecture and the grounds are very nice...and calm. During the warmer months,it is fun to grab a sandwich and a drink and chill out on the grassy area near the Redpath Museum - good view of downtown Montreal, looking down McGill College Avenue towards the cruciform office tower, Place Ville Marie. The area just east of the main campus is referred to as the McGill Ghetto. I know it well, I live there. Grab a coffee at Second Cup on avenue du Parc in the ghetto....if you can find a free spot.

    Peaceful Uni life

    This picturesque Univerity is the center of the Anglo section of town and though it's nice to just lounge on their grounds and soak up some sun, it's quite an eye opener to wander the neighboring streets and mansion after mansion. I guess Professors make pretty good money there, eh? ;>

    McGill it's a University, you should take a look, it's in the downtown of Montreal and near from the Mall and the main Avenue St. Catherine.
