Visiting the Hunterian Art Gallery

Visiting the Hunterian Art Gallery


This year we celebrate 300 years since the birth of our founder, Dr William Hunter, with a series of special Tercentenary exhibitions and events including William Hunter and the Anatomy of the Modern Museum and Strange Foreign Bodies.

To allow us to prepare, there will be limited access to some parts of the Hunterian Art Gallery until 28 September 2018.

Our permanent art displays, including works by Whistler, the Scottish Colourists and Glasgow Boys, will be unavailable until spring 2019.

Some objects from the Hunterian Museum will move to the Hunterian Art Gallery as part of our William Hunter exhibition.

The Mackintosh House, Rosengarten exhibition and Hunterian Museum remain open as usual.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

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.
