The dinosore in the picture resides in the enterance to Glasgow's oldest museum. It's named after William Hunter, its early benefactor, who donated his private collections to get the museum going.
The collection is wide-ranging, from dinosaur fossils to coins to relics of the Roman occupation and plunder by the Vikings. The story of Captain Cook's voyages is pieced together in ethnographic material from the South Seas.

Directions: Located in the University of Glasgow. Opening hours:
Monday - Saturday 9.30am - 5.00pm

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
