Haven't expected much from this museum, but was really surprised when I visited. Some really interesting exhibits, especially the ones related to surgeries in the past.

We found this museum by accident while visiting the University. It was fascinating especially the Museum of anatomy and Zoology, where all the old medical utensils and specimens are displayed. While in Glasgow its well worth going to see.

A small museum, and notwithstanding Hunter's achievements not that interesting. Many (if not most) of the interactive items were out of order. You could skip this at no great loss.

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
