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!

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.

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

We did not take a car on this occasion but travelled to the Museum by public transport which is very good from the city to the West End of Glasgow. There is also an underground system to Hillhead in Byres Road and it is... More
