The recreation of the house where Mackintosh and his wife lived is wonderful, and inspiring. But it was a pity that we could not see the Museum's collections since they were preparing for a temporary exhibition

I preferred this museum to the Kelvingrove. It's a private collection of curiosities and artifacts. I really enjoyed the medical artifacts and curiosities.

The Hunterian has pieces of the Antonine Wall. It has plenty of dinosaur bones, medical samples, inventions that didn't pan out, coins.

It was amazing to visit this museum. It was very different from other museums I had previously visited. The range of items on display was unusual but very cool. I would definitely recommend visiting & would love to visit again myself!

The Hunterian Museum - (directly across the street from the Hunterian Art Gallery) in the U. of Glasgow is wonderful - especially the gallery with the instruments from Hunter, Lister and Lord Kelvin (with great explanations of how and why). Ask where Lister's instruments are...More

Enjoyed the Antonine Wall exhibit about the final extension of the Roman Empire in Scotland. The exhibit about Lord Kelvin was fascinating. Many other topics are presented. Definitely worth a visit and the admission is free.

What a surprise! My wife and I visited with another couple – and we all are, to some extent, museum people, we seek them out – and very much enjoyed our visit. We were intent on seeing the Mackintosh House, the Hunterian is actually museum...More

The museum is about 40 minutes walk from Glasgow Central station, but there are other means to get there if this is not your cup of tea. After walking through Kelvingrove Park you immediately see the ancient buildings of Glasgow University, inside which the museum...More
