I love little museums that pack a powerful punch! And that's exactly what the Hunterian Art Gallery does. While featuring at least one special exhibit, the galleries are chock-full of wonderful paintings! Its collection of the Glasgow Boys and the Scottish Colourists are two of the highlights. The works are well curated, with good information and staff, mostly student volunteers,... More

We took our art loving American friend here and he loved it. It's a nice bright, airy gallery with a lot of interesting paintings. Good if you like art, not so much if you don't!

This gallery may be small, but it more than makes up for it the quality of the collection. It is well laid out and there are a good range of different styles on show. This gallery is by far superior to the nearby Kelvingrove Art Gallery

Some really interesting pieces, I like modern art and wished there had been of this but that is just personal preference. Attached to the Mackintosh House which is an absolute must-see.

This is a very small art gallery but it contains quite a bit. There is a lot of space devoted to Whistler, but there are also some very nice French and Dutch works. The sections devoted to the Glasgow boys and Colorists are also ample enough. This museum should take no more than 30-45 minutes but in conjunction with the... More

From the moment you enter the building you're imoressed by the sweep of the staircase and the grandeur of the space. The rooms are a real wonder......displays fascinating, well presented, and you can imagine those old time botanists and explorers who brought back the gorgeous specimens for us to appreciate. The special exhibitions are always worth visiting, as they're very... More

In the grounds of Glasgow University and just around the corner from Byres Road, Glasgow West End's answer to the King's Road in London, with its nicnak shops, bars & restaurants, definitely worth a visit. The Uni. with its architecture, is worth a walk around on its own, as JK Rowlings' Hogwarts comes to mind

If you are looking for a nice small gallery with great pieces, this is the place to visit. Walking around The University campus and the Gallery was a great experience. You could also visit many of the good coffee places near the Gallery.
