So in our travels I didn't get there but my daughter went to the University of Glasgow and received her masters in museum studies. Take it from her it is worth the visit.

The highlight of the museum is definitely its location and building. There are some lovely artefacts on display, but they are very randomly ordered, and there is sadly little cohesion as one wanders.

This was a great little find. A bit of a hike for the old knee which was playing up that day. But well worth a visit.

The collection and information presenting at the Hunterian is top notch. All the sections and pieces are so interesting - and the information cards are so well done. The building/main hall is architecturally stunning as well. This is such a gem. I can't recommend this...More

Much like the Ashmolean in Oxford, the Hunterian has benefited hugely from its association with the University of Glasgow - from Professors through to its Alumni - who have contributed to a truly excellent collection of artefacts. The Roman exhibition shows just how much more...More

This museum is not very large, but has incredible collections. World-class archaeology collection with items from all over the world. The Roman collection is particularly impressive. Very informative and great signage to explain things. Also had some geology and natural history with animals. Free entry.

We did not take a car on this occasion but travelled to the Museum by public transport which is very good from the city to the West End of Glasgow. There is also an underground system to Hillhead in Byres Road and it is... More
