Anatomy Museum

Anatomy Museum sign
William Hunter’s remarkable specimens show all aspects of human form and function and reflect his lifelong successful career as a pioneering anatomist and obstetrician. 

The Anatomy Museum is located in the Thomson building. Visiting is by appointment only - find out more on the School of Life Sciences webpage.

William Hunter's Pathology collection, formerly housed at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary, is now located in the Thomson Building. Some pathology specimens are on show in the Anatomy Museum but most are in storage - requests for access to the pathology material should be sent to The Hunterian Collections Management team in the first instance.

Largely used for teaching and research, these collections have considerable importance in the history and development of medicine.
