The Hunterian Art Gallery

The Hunterian Art Gallery boasts one of the most distinguished public art collections in Scotland. Its permanent displays include works ranging from Rubens and Rembrandt to the Scottish Colourists and Glasgow Boys.

It also features the world’s largest permanent display of the work of James McNeill Whistler, the largest single holding of the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and The Mackintosh House, the reassembled interiors from his Glasgow home.

The outdoor Sculpture Courtyard features small display of modern works by British artists.

Visiting the Hunterian Art Gallery


In 2018 we celebrated 300 years since the birth of our founder, Dr William Hunter, with a series of special exhibitions and events in the Hunterian Art Gallery. We are now working on a complete redisplay of the Gallery so our permanent art displays, including works by Whistler, the Scottish Colourists and Glasgow Boys, will be unavailable until May 2019. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The Art Gallery remains OPEN throughout and we have a number of special exhibitions available:

Rosengarten (until 1 October 2019)
The German Revolution: Expressionist Prints (1 March - 25 August 2019) 
Hand Drawn Action Packed (16 March - 3 June 2019)

The Mackintosh House and the Hunterian Museum are unaffected and also remain OPEN.

Just a short walk away from The Hunterian is Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum which houses one of Europe's great art collections and features galleries dedicated to the Glasgow Boys, Scottish Colourists and Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style.
