McGill University’s campus is located in the very heart of downtown Montreal and is open to the public. Surprisingly vast for a downtown area, the campus contrasts a lot with the buildings around it.
I’ve come to cross the campus of few times in the past years and I find its architecture and dynamism pretty interesting. The buildings are all unique, some look like they should be featured in Harry Potter movies, while some others have more of a ’70s vibe. The mix of it all gives a pretty interesting look and I think it’s definitely worth a stop if you’re in Montreal.
A few historical plates and statues as well as artistic work are also spread around the campus. It seemed most buildings just had classrooms so I wouldn’t recommend going inside too much, apart from the Redpath building which I went in to see the campus’ little natural history museum. It’s completely free and not too big but still has three different exhibitions that are interesting to look at.
