After first opening its doors back in 1807, The Hunterian is Scotland's oldest public museum still attracting visitors to Glasgow's university district. Dr William Hunter originally founded the museum to exhibit his passion for collecting, and nowadays it showcases diverse displays and artefacts from a wide variety of fields. The Hunterian now operates under the guidance of the University of Glasgow, with the museum's other permanent exhibits based around the main campus. For lovers of the arts, the Hunterian Art Gallery has one of the finest collections in Scotland and, as Hunter was a keen observer of anything unique, the Zoology museum homes an exotic array of rare animals.
