Really interesting museum. Loads of interesting medical history exhibits. The anatomy museum also situated in Glasgow University is also fantastic if you get in.

It is not just the building, nor the history, nor the exhibits! Originated by a great man to serve mankind! Do not miss especially if you hold an interest in medicine and science!

Wasn't sure what this museum was about but took the short walk over the river kelvin to see. Was very interesting and an added bonus is that it is housed in the beautiful Glasgow university.
