The Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery

Location: Glasgow, Scotland, UK

This museum is the oldest public museum in Scotland - it dates back to 1807. It is part of the University of Glasgow and is located on the main university campus. The museum's collection encompasses artifacts and objects into number of different areas including historical displays (The Hunterian Museum), an art collection and outdoor sculpture garden (The Hunterian Gallery), and a zoology museum (The Zoology Museum).

While the museum's collection includes many important fossils, in the museum's own word, it "does not hold a vast collection of dinosaurs".

Some of the more interesting dinosaur-related specimens in the museum's collection include:
  • The first dinosaur footprint found in Scotland (found in 1982)

  • Several dinosaur bones

  • Iguanodon and Megalosaurus teeth collected by Gideon Mantel (one of the first dinosaur researchers) in the early 1800s.
Additionally the collection includes an extremely high-quality and expansive collection of trilobites, and large collection of Jurassic marine vertebrates including fish, marine crocodiles, Ichthyosaurs and Plesiosaurs.
