I stumbled upon this place while I was in search of Mackintosh's house and became rather enthralled with its quirky collection of odds and ends, including anatomical collections. The building is gorgeous and old school, but that adds to the curious nature of the collection....More

What an amazing wonderful place! The Anatomical pieces and vast collections had us enthralled! It even had a super cafe for refreshments to give you a moment to contemplate and discuss all we had seen

This is an old style museum of curious collectables which is well worth wandering around for a while.

I've always been rather drawn to personal collections and the Hunterian is up there among the best. There's such a diverse range of objects that everyone will find something that appeals. In addition, there are also smaller exhibits of other local collectors and artisans. Amazingly,...More

I looked forward to seeing some great art at the Hunterian but, as of May 2018, there is a special (boring) exhibition on and many of the paintings have been put into storage. I was very disappointed.

A must-visit venue when in Glasgow. So much to see, learn and absorb. We were given a guided tour by a very helpful history student which made our visit all the more special. Take a camera! Some amazing architecture too

What's striking is that this is from a private collection and located within the historic University of Glasgow. The guy must really love his alma mater.

The U of G looks like Hogwarts. Definitely go check out this funky museum, built from a former student's personal collections. Across the road is the sister art museum.

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
