“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This is a real gem but not very well publicised museum. I loved the medical and engineering displays that is coupled with so much rich history.

“Strange and interesting displays: worth a gander”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

A somewhat eclectic collection, it's worth a look around. You can't spend too long in here as it's not a particular big place, but there are some interesting oddities in the medical section worth looking at.

“Awaiting a new experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

I cannot wait for the Hunterian to open after a"facelift". It is a beautiful setting to display paintings. It has a serenity about it very few art galleries can hope to aspire to.
