Keys to History

The Natural History Society, founded in 1827, was an association of Montrealers interested in natural history. The premises of the society included an amphitheatre, a library and a museum. According to contemporary sources, the main attraction of the museum was the Ferrier Collection of Egyptian antiquities, of which the pièce de résistance was certainly the mummy case.
