The Art Gallery/Museum across the street has wonderful paintings by... More

My family and I found the Hunterian interesting and rather eclectic in its arrangement of exhibits. You never know what is down the hall or around the corner and it makes a visit all that more engaging. For more experienced museum visitors, the layout may not be as one would expect.

This is a truly interesting museum. Features odd things that you will not see in a normal museum. The staff are really friendly & helpful.

I almost didn't stop here, but I'm so glad I decided to go in!! There's an Incredible collection of preserved anatomy in addition to some very impressive displays from a wide variety of collections!! The University building is just as stunning; it was well worth the time to see.

A more "grown up" museum, medical exhibits led to a few interesting conversations with my 11 yr old, but great to spend a few hours and is in an area of other must see exhibits including the Tosh House. We walked up from the Kgrove museum thro the University, worth doing.

I went to the Hunterian with my boyfriend and we both loved it! A fascinating and truly varied selection of items, covering history and science for millions of years. Will definitely go back!

Lovely building. Paintings clearly and well displayed. As there was building work at the Uni was not as easy to find walking from the subway as it could have been.

Being a Glasgow Alumni may make me slightly biased! The Hunterian Collection is always worth a little look around and usually has some sort of exhibition on too. It even allows a stroll around the original university building.
