We found this museum by accident while visiting the University. It was fascinating especially the Museum of anatomy and Zoology, where all the old medical utensils and specimens are displayed. While in Glasgow its well worth going to see.

Interesting collection of medical, cultural and technical exhibits across two floors in the university. Free to enter and worth an hour's investment

We arrived late in the day, so our visit was a bit rushed. There is lots to see here, form the weird medical exhibits to things from Roman times. Excellent.
