An Introduction to the Hunterian Museum

Watch this short video to see the Museum galleries and hear about the histories and topics covered in the displays.

With a focus on object-led and curriculum-linked sessions, the Museum welcomes learners from secondary (minimum age 14) through to further and higher education.

When I was a boy, I wanted to know all about the clouds and the grasses, and why the leaves changed colour in the autumn; I watched the ants, bees, birds, tadpoles, and caddisworms; I pestered people with questions about what nobody knew or cared anything about.
