Reopening our venues

Welcome back!

The Hunterian Museum reopened on 18 August and we are delighted to announce that the Hunterian Art Gallery* will reopen on 22 September. We have new temporary opening hours of 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sundays.

Entry is FREE but, for your safety, we have introduced online timed ticketing which allows us to manage numbers and maintain physical distancing. Tickets are available now via our Tickets page.

A range of safety measures have been put in place in line with Scottish Government guidelines. As well as pre-booked timed entry, we have introduced hand sanitising stations, screens at our welcome desks, enhanced cleaning and one way routes to help with physical distancing. We would ask all our visitors to wear a face covering to minimise any risk.

*The Mackintosh House remains closed for now because of physical distancing guidelines. We’re sorry about that but will keep you updated and give you a reopening date as soon as possible.

Further updates will be added to our website and posted on our social media channels. We’re excited and looking forward to seeing you!
