Although the museum is a bit small, it is packed with an eclectic and at times bizarre mix of objects means, and was able to spend a considerable time looking through it. Beautiful surroundings and well worth seeing.

An amazing collection, and so varied. I appreciated that a guide sought out me (and other visitors) to initiate a tour. Well worth the visit if you're on the U Glasgow campus.

This museum is inside the university main building and it has a small but dedicated set of impressive collections. As a student in biology I love this place.

This has fascinating exhibits from around the Antonine Wall, which ran roughly between Glasgow and Edinburgh. They are in excellent condition and tell the story of Roman legions and their forts.
