A good way to spend 30 minutes. Very knowledgeable guides. Book in advance. Only £5 or £3 concessions. Not the easiest place to find. But well worth the effort. A hidden treasure.

This small gem of a museum is right around the corner of the much larger Kelvingrove Art Gallery and has much less foot traffic. A few native Scottish painters' works are shown here. Their Whistler collection is much more noteworthy. Very worthwhile to see add...More

Went to see the Bute collection as we were also going to the Mount Stuart Manor on the Isle of Bute. The main gallery had a very nice collection and well displayed.

We had no idea this collection existed and were delighted to find it connected to the Hunterian Museum. One should plan time to visit both.

Review by Dr Sim. Worth a visit by tourist if you have the time. Wide collection. Long walk through. University of Glasgow is the 4th oldest university in UK. Many donated items. Regards Dr Sim

The Hunterian Art Gallery combines what you would expect- paintings and sketches, with the addition of other collections. The coin and medal collections are an effective means to present a wide expanse of history including Scottish's ebb and flow of royal figures.

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to the recreated Mackintosh house at the Hungarian Art Gallery. The furniture, original or excellent reproductions, give the house a lived-in feeling. The wall stencilling, especially on the dining room walls is period perfect and a decorating inspiration....More

The most memorable thing about this gallery has to be the incredibly squeaky wooden floor through out. Small, and if Art is your thing then maybe you'll get more from it than we did, but left kind of disappointed.

If you want a visual lift or a short tour through various genres this is ideal. It is qorth it for the Scottish Colourists and Mackintosh House alone. Fabulous.

Sorry I don't know the answer. I was only in Glasgow 2 days last month on a short break. I do not live there and so do not keep up to date on what's on.

Not sure since we didn't actually go to the show but it should be worth it as Scottish comics are great eg the Beano and the Dandy,
