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.

  • Really interesting and peaceful. Free to enter as well.

  • 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.

  • Quaint exhibition in a hall in the centre of the campus. Rather dated and not quite what I was expecting.

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

  • Place could do with a update, lots of empty exhibits etc but my 6 year old was fascinated.
