A very interesting and informing collection and to be found inside the university. They also have a wing dedicated to the life and work of Dr. Hunter.

Well worth a visit while in Glasgow especially for someone passionate with history. Lots of interesting collection and the building has a great architecture!

The Hunterian is in two sections. The first building houses the original and eclectic collection of scientific, anthopological and historical artifacts (including currently an exhibition about the Antonine Wall) . It is interesting but you may not want to spend too much time in it....More

University of Glasgow has a special interest in the artist James Whistler-his heir donated many pieces to this museum.

Interesting exhibitions .. Mackintosh one is up stairs ( sadly , not for me ) ; the Whistler one was made outstanding by the US (?) student Muse who really brought it all to life ( BIG applause for that, I'd say ). Downsides ?...More

and pay the small fee for visiting MacIntosh's house. If nothing else, you will leave in awe of the discipline it would take to live such an aesthetic life.

It's a good thing Dr. Hunter was such a hoarder! Apparently what's on display is just a small fraction of his amazing collection. Being a doctor I especially liked the anatomic/medical displays. Don't miss it!
