Hunterian Art Gallery

Hunterian Art Gallery
In 1807, The Hunterian was the first museum in Britain with a gallery of paintings. Today, although most famous for our Whistler and Mackintosh collections, we have a wide range of outstanding works on show. The Hunterian Art Gallery, located on Hillhead Street beside the University Library, boasts one of the most distinguished public art collections in Scotland with works ranging from Rubens and Rembrandt to the Scottish Colourists and Glasgow Boys. It also features an outdoor sculpture courtyard with a small display of modern works by British artists, the world’s largest permanent display of the work of James McNeill Whistler, the largest single holding of the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and The Mackintosh House.

SEPTEMBER 2018 - SPRING 2019

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.

William Hunter and the Anatomy of the Modern Museum is now open at the Hunterian Art Gallery. This major exhibition is located in the main gallery which means our permanent art displays, including works by Whistler, the Scottish Colourists and Glasgow Boys, will be unavailable until spring 2019. 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.
