Tours of The Hunterian

MUSE Tour Programme

Tours led by our student MuSEs (Museum Student Educators). Tours 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).

Hunterian Art Gallery

From 6th January 2019, there will be a period of tour suspension, while the Gallery is under development and to allow the guides to re-train. 

Hunterian Museum

From Jan 3rd until Jan 27th the regular programme of tours will be suspended due to guide training.  Tours may still be provided on a pop-up basis during this time but advance notice of times cannot be supplied.  Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

From 29th Jan 2019, the following tour schedule will apply

  • Antonine Wall Tour: Hourly on the hour from 11:00 - 16:00 (excluding 13:00)
  • Remaining Museum Tours: Main Hall Highlights / Science and Innovation / Medical History Highlights/ The Byzantium.  Hourly on the half hour from 10:30 - 3:30
    Guides will advise at the start of the tour which of these titles they are offering

Please Note: 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 ringing the Museum (0141 330 4221) or the Art Gallery (0141 330 5434).
