Facing the Arts Building on the McGill University campus, this example of award-winning Victorian Classicism and late Greek Revival architecture was commissioned in 1880 and opened in 1882. Its eclectic architecture goes well with its natural history collection, which includes prehistoric and modern animals, rocks, crystals and precious stones. It even has a small collection of famous Burgess Shale fossils. A dinosaur skeleton dominates the main display area, while temporary exhibits are found at the entrance to the hall.
