This exhibition at The Hunterian celebrates the William Hunter Tercentenary (1718-1783) and explores the contexts in which the Hunterian founder formed his collections and the unique position they occupy in the development of museums as we know them today. For the first time in 150 years, the scale and quality of Hunter’s collections will all be in one place reuniting paintings, ethnographic objects, anatomical and natural history preparations and items from Hunter’s library and great coin collections.

Deputy Director Mungo Campbell will give two personal tours of this special exhibition.
