Expert review of The Hunterian
Beneath the Gothic spires of the University of Glasgow, the Hunterian Museum houses one of the city’s best collections of art, science and academia. Founded in 1807 on the collections of the eminent Scottish physician and obstetrician William Hunter, this museum has a number of permanent galleries focusing on coins, anatomy, Roman occupation, dinosaurs and fossils, zoology and scientific instruments – everything bar the kitchen sink really. Although they may have one from ancient Greece kept in storage someplace. But it’s the Mackintosh Collection, the largest single holding of his work comprising more than 800 drawings, designs and watercolours, and the Whistler collections that are world-famous.
