The Hunterian at the University of Glasgow is one of the world's leading university museums and galleries and one of Scotland's greatest cultural assets. Located in Glasgow's west end, The Hunterian first opened in 1807, making it Scotland's oldest public museum.

Built on Dr William Hunter's founding bequest, The Hunterian's treasures today include scientific apparatus used by James Watt and Lord Kelvin; monumental sculpture and antiquities from the Antonine Wall; major earth sciences holdings; Scotland's most important print and numismatic collections; rare 'first contact' artefacts from the Pacific Ocean; and extensive collections of European and Scottish art. The Hunterian is also home to the world's largest permanent display of the work of James McNeill Whistler, the largest single holding of the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and The Mackintosh House, the reassembled interiors from his Glasgow home.

The Hunterian houses the first-ever ultrasound machine!

The Hunterian has four venues on the University campus - the Hunterian Museum, Hunterian Art Gallery and The Mackintosh House, Zoology Museum and Anatomy Museum. As well as fascinating permanent displays, The Hunterian has a world class exhibition and events programme including daily MUSE Tours, Mackintosh House Tours and weekly Insight Talks. *Please note that from March 18, 2016 onwards, there will be an admission charge of £5.00/£3.00 for The Mackintosh House.*
