Fodor's Review

Set within Glasgow University, this museum dating from 1807 showcases part of the collections of William Hunter, an 18th-century Glasgow doctor who assembled a staggering quantity of valuable material. Look for Hunter's hoards of coins, manuscripts, scientific instruments, and archaeological artifacts in a striking Gothic building. A permanent exhibit chronicles the building of the Antonine Wall, the Romans' northernmost defense.
