University Avenue Temporary Closures

Visitors should be aware that University Avenue will be temporarily closed to traffic in both directions over the weekends of 31 August/1 September and 14/15 September 2019.

In both cases the road will be closed between the junctions for Ashton Road and University Gardens, starting at 6.00am on Saturday until 6.00am on Monday.

The footpath on the west-bound carriageway, closest to the Wolfson Medical Building, will remain open so that pedestrians can still use the Avenue.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Visiting the Hunterian Art Gallery

We are currently working on a complete rehang of our permanent art displays in the Hunterian Art Gallery. Some new sections are open now and the remaining sections are expected to open by the end of September 2019. Sorry if some of your favourites are not on show yet!

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

Rosengarten (until 1 October 2019)
Ilana Halperin: Minerals of New York (until 13 October 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. Find out more on the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum website.
