Spent a Sunday here at an exhibition of the works o Charles Rennie MacIntosh noted for his architectural design which can be found around Glasgow. This was followed by a tour of the Mackintosh house which makes up part off the Hunterian Museum, University of Glasgow. Not to be missed.

Very hard to find in the labyrinth of buildings and corridors of the University. We were very impressed with the Antonine Roman Wall display.

Didn't know much about the museum, so we were pleasantly surprised by the fascinating collections displayed there. From medical studies to ancient maps. Very worthwhile to make the effort to get there. Just a short walk from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

An eyeopener. We knew about Turner (we thought), but was unaware of his vast interest in - everything. Worthwhile.

Across the road from Glasgow University this is a place you cannot miss. Again like so many museums and galleries in Glasgow, entry is free unless there may be a special exhibition on at the time - but entry is still free but excepting the exhibition !

We found this museum by accident after visiting the University and it was really interesting and worth a visit. Not a huge museum but varied & interesting. The architecture alone is worth seeing.
