Wow, what a lot to see and learn. Hunter and Kelvin were very clever chaps. Chose to come here as reviews indicated that the Burrell Collection had much of its artwork put away because of water leaks. I'm glad I did because the museum and gallery kept me interested for many hours. Loved the Roman Scotland collection. Could do with... More

This museum is beautiful. Perfect for wandering around on a rainy afternoon, and lets face it, there are loads of those in Glasgow! When I went at the end of March, there were lots of Roman exhibits, and also lots of natural history and scientific exhibits to leisurely stroll around and look at. Its totally free, and also, while you... More

This wonderful Museum is a must visit when in Glasgow. It is different to the Hunterian in London being far more comprehensive and displaying not only medical and zoological specimens but a huge range of scientific instruments, astronomy, geology and other areas of art and science. It is located in the grounds of Glasgow University in beautiful old buildings and... More

Housed in a fantastic building this has exhibits for everyone. The mezzanine level and ground floor level showcase some amazing items but not in a dusty old, do not touch sort of way. A refreshing museum - Well worth a visit

Am always torn between Edinburgh and Glasgow for culture but must say this Museum was excellent. Being in the Glasgow University also gives you chance to explore the wonderful architecture and see the buzz of Student life. Good place for adults and children alike.

We were there to see the Mackintosh House which was definitely worth seeing. It is part of the University of Glasgow, built of red sandstone and very impressive.

This is an incredible museum; the number of ancient Roman artifacts is fantastic. We started looking at these, then a student named Jess told us she was about to give a tour if we wanted to join, which we did. She was very knowledgeable about the collection, and it was very interesting to see how the collection is so old,... More
