Tours of The Hunterian

Tours Suspended

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our tours are currently suspended. We are working towards resuming them when it is safe to do so.

MUSE Tour Programme

Tours are led by our student MuSEs (Museum Student Educators). They last approximately 30 minutes and are free of charge. (Where there is a charge for entry to temporary exhibitions, the tour is included in the ticket price).

Visitors should be aware that as we are dependent on student volunteers to deliver these tours, there are unfortunately times when study or work commitments hinder the guides' attendance. Naturally every attempt is made to provide cover and ensure that the tour goes ahead but it is not always possible. 

Checking tour details 

If you wish to check where and when tours are on offer, you can do so within 5 days of the planned visit date by telephoning the Hunterian Museum (0141 330 4221) or the Hunterian Art Gallery (0141 330 5434).
