Hunterian Museum - Review

One of Scotland’s oldest museums, the Hunterian is a storehouse of amazing things. It is basically a science related museum but contains a variety of exhibits from various fields. There are scientific instruments, rocks and minerals, coins and medals and several other objects on display.

Another interesting thing to see is the anatomy collection. Some of the items there are from the founders’ personal collections. Actual teaching material for the subject from the olden days has been put up. Several fossils including those of dinosaurs have been put up on display as well. All in all, the place is a very fascinating one. The varied objects to see are sure to leave you captivated for hours and the eclectic and quirky mix of things ensures that there is something for everyone. This one is also one of the must see places in Glasgow.

Hunterian Museum, Glasgow Reviews

  • I thought this was a really interesting museum, chock full of things in jars- a great place to take a biologist! It is free to enter and contains three areas of interesting things to see.

  • Very nice place with huge collection of incects, well organized.

  • As a student studying here doing Anatomy, this place is really interesting to me. If you are interested in the history of the Hunter brothers, make sure to have a look at the anatomy museum in thr Thompson building to the left of the main entrance. Haven't been in a while, but they always have some cool new exhibits to show off.

  • Only had a short time here before they closed, but what I saw was a fascinating mix of things. Well definitely need to go back to see more. The place also had some of the most helpful staff I've ever met.

  • A great place to visit. The Roman relics are worthy of note and there are many other interesting things to see. History made interesting and easy.
