Well worth the trek out to the University to see this lovely little gallery (William Whitworth architect) and the Mackintosh House.Well displayed treasures. It is a pity that they don't allow photographs as there are very few reproductions of the collection.

Small gallery within teh grounds of Glasgow University well worth a visit to see an excellent cllection of paintings by Whistler and The Glasgow Boys. Close by you also have the Macintosh white room and the Huntarian Museum which are also worth visting.

The collection is foremost in Rex Whistler and The Glasgow Boys. Entrance is free and well worth an hour or so wandering round and admiring the beautiful works of art. The signage could have been a bit more expansive, but on the whole, this is a must see on any trip to Glasgow!

A little too academic to our taste. It seemed a bit overpowering. The staff were polite however not really geared to our minds to the tourist visitor. Shop staff did try too.

The Hunterian Art Gallery at the University of Glasgow is located next to the Mackintosh house and a small but interesting sculptor garden. But do not confuse it with the Hunterian Museum across the street with a focus on natural sciences and historical artifacts like from the Antonio Wall way north of Hadrian's wall ...built by the Romans.

Wonderful Glasgow university collection of art. Mixed variety and quality but some really special works including a small Chardin and some remarkable Whistlers.
