Had never heard of this place until i saw a item on the television. Oh what a treat, lots of local and world renowned artists to choose from. They definitely need to improve the publicity for this place as it is a hidden gem. Part...More

Who'd ever heard of this before? We found it by chance when wandering in the University. Lots of interesting exhibits. Definitely worth an hour of your time!

Title says it all. A must-visit for anyone interested in history and zoology (although to be honest it's worth a visit for the fantastic architecture of the room alone)

The collection and information presenting at the Hunterian is top notch. All the sections and pieces are so interesting - and the information cards are so well done. The building/main hall is architecturally stunning as well. This is such a gem. I can't recommend this...More

Much like the Ashmolean in Oxford, the Hunterian has benefited hugely from its association with the University of Glasgow - from Professors through to its Alumni - who have contributed to a truly excellent collection of artefacts. The Roman exhibition shows just how much more...More

We did not take a car on this occasion but travelled to the Museum by public transport which is very good from the city to the West End of Glasgow. There is also an underground system to Hillhead in Byres Road and it is... More
