If you are visiting university of Glasgow then this attractive museum is well worth a visit. It will be of interest to artchitects and houses a range of interesting artifacts. It is very close to the old cloisters of Glasgow university and easy to access.

The museum is an amazing look at the varied interests of a man. There are animal oddities, birds, medical equipment, anatomical drawings. It is definitely worth a visit.

I had heard of William Hunter in regards to the Gravida Uterus, but had no idea of his other accomplishments – surgeon, obstetrician, lecturer, anatomist, author, illustrator, collector extraordinaire, and mentor… and I'm sure there are more.

Like all Glasgow museums, this one is free. Located within the grounds of Glasgow university, the museum offers a whole host of exhibits with the central theme being anatomy. I would highly recommend a visit! Plenty to see including the wide array of bone and tissue samples collected by Scottish anatomist, William Hunter.

This museum is great fun. Filled with interesting (and sometimes creepy) things, it's a great way to spend your afternoon. I would highly recommend it to anyone of all ages.

The Hunterian Museum is one of the University of Glasgow's Gems and is well worth a visit for anyone who has any interest in the history of medicine and other related matters. It is very well kept and provides a rewarding insight into the past

Located on the University area of Glasgow is the Hunterian Museum. The museum contained objects on physics, geology, biology and several other topics. The museum itself is perhaps a somewhat more old style museum but non the less very informative and to me enjoyable.

I ran out of time before I ran out of things to look at. This collection is in a gorgeous building on the University of Glasgow campus. The building itself--indoors and outdoors is worth the visit. Interesting artifacts.
