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.

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.

I've been to this gallery twice and still haven't seen everything. I love the Glasgow Boys exhibit. Some temporary exhibits cost extra, as does the Mackintosh house, but most are free. Plan on at least half a day if you want to do it justice.

This collection while small is good on certain areas such as Scottish Colourists (which may complement the collection in nearby Kelvingrove) and Whistler. Elsewhere in the collection there are some good pieces but nothing largely outstanding. It is not a huge collection so should not...More

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,
