Limited Access to Collections

The Hunterian’s new storage, study and research facilities at Kelvin Hall are due to open in September 2016. To facilitate this we have a complex programme of assessment and packing for all of our 1.3 million objects and specimens. From September 2015 until the decant process is completed in late 2017 there will be limited access to the collections and support available for teaching, loans and researchers for all parts of the collection. We will provide updates as collections become available for access.

Until further notice there will be no access to:

  • Art
  • Archaeology
  • Ethnography
  • Entomology
  • Mineralogy/Petrology
  • Numismatics
  • Palaeontology
  • Scientific and Medical History
  • University Heritage Collections
  • Zoology

Reduced access, depending on staff availability, to:

  • Anatomy

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Our permanent and temporary exhibition galleries are still open as normal.

If you have any enquiries regarding collections access during this period please contact The Hunterian’s Head of Collections Management, Malcolm Chapman
