Hunterian Museum & Art Gallery

While you’re visiting Glasgow’s lively university quarter, take the opportunity to drop into the hallowed Hunterian Museum & Art Gallery.

Scotland’s first museum, the Hunterian opened in 1807. Displaying the collection of renowned physician William Hunter, who spent time at the university as a student, the museum exhibits an idiosyncratic array of artifacts, from coins to fossils, scientific instruments and curios.

In a separate building across University Avenue, the art gallery highlights the work of the Scottish colorists and landscape artists. The standouts here are the work by artists known as the Glasgow Boys, and the gallery’s renowned collection of works by James McNeill Whistler.

Don’t miss Mackintosh House, with its re-created interiors from the home of famous architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The Mackintosh Collection brings together the largest array of Mackintosh designs, watercolors, drawings and correspondence.
