Hunterian Museum

The Hunterian Museum is Scotland's oldest museum. Its collections include Asante weights from Nigeria, coins, tokens and medals from Incan to Greek, Roman, Renaissance and Scottish sources, rare Scottish dinosaur fossils from Skye and collections of Egyptian and Roman antiquities.

The museum was founded from a donation to the University of Glasgow by William Hunter and the main collections are housed in Sir George Gilbert Scott's neo-Gothic building on the university campus. The zoological collection is in the Graham Kerr Building, with the art collections in the nearby Hunterian Art Gallery and the books and manuscripts in the Glasgow University Library.

Finally, Hunter's anatomical collections are in the Allen Thomson Building, with his pathological preparations at Glasgow's Royal Infirmary.
