This is a brilliant museum, totally undersold. Since the Art Galleries dumbed down at the last refurb/remodel, the Hunterian is the place to go to see proper collctions and exhibits.

Like the Museum, there are links to the University of Glasgow - a symbiotic relationship. Especially strong on late 19th/early 20th century art, the Whistler collection is one of the best in the world. Strongly recommended

The gallery is modern and well designed, and its modest size makes it possible to see everything without feeling overwhelmed. There are paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Chardin and Stubbs, a very comprehensive collection of paintings by Whistler and a very enjoyable collection of Scottish art...More

While it’s important to emphasise that there is nothing wrong with this museum, I have to confess that it didn’t really inspire me. It does house a large collection of the works of James McNeill Whistler however, so for any fans of his work it’ll...More

We'd set out to see the Hunterian Museum and the Macintosh house. Having been to University art galleries before I wasn't really expecting the scale of the collection. The Whistlers in particular were a revelation - I find seeing a good collection of an artist's...More

Sorry I don't know the answer. I was only in Glasgow 2 days last month on a short break. I do not live there and so do not keep up to date on what's on.
