Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery

Housed within the University of Glasgow, the Huntarian Museum and Art Gallery is Scotland’s oldest public museum and one of the country’s most important cultural assets. It was spawned by the death of renowned anatomist and physician, Dr William Hunter who, upon his death in 1783, stipulated that his extensive collections should be donated to the university.

24 years later, the museum opened within the university’s original city centre campus and alter relocated, along with the University of Glasgow, to its present site.

The Huntarian Museum today is spread across several buildings, best showcasing its distinguished collection of works, which include Rubens and Rembrandt, as well as scientific instruments used by James Watt.
