Join Hunterian Deputy Director Mungo Campbell to celebrate the William Hunter Tercentenary with a personal tour of this special exhibition. William Hunter and the Anatomy of the Modern Museum explores the contexts in which Hunterian founder William Hunter formed his collections and the unique position they occupy in the development of museums as we know them today. For the first time in 150 years, Friends will be able to see the scale and quality of Hunter's collections all in one place, reuniting paintings, ethnographic objects, anatomical and natural history preparations and items from Hunter's library and great coin collections.
