Hunterian Museum

The Hunterian Museum
William Hunter’s original collection was assembled to improve knowledge of the world and was rich in rare and important objects. Some 200 years later, the Hunterian Museum, located in the Gilbert Scott building, contains a huge variety of objects and offers the chance to discover and explore.

The Hunterian Museum features stunning displays of archaeology, palaeontology, geology, zoology, entomology, ethnography and numismatics, with highly acclaimed permanent galleries dedicated to Roman material from the Antonine Wall, the history of medicine in the west of Scotland and Lord Kelvin’s scientific instruments.
