Celebrating the William Hunter Tercentenary, this exhibition explores the contexts in which Hunterian founder Dr William Hunter (1718-1783) formed his collections.

As well as placing the collections in context, this exhibition explores the unique position they occupy in the development of museums as we know them today.

For the first time in 150 years, visitors will be able to see the scale and quality of Hunter's collections all in one place.

The exhibition reunites paintings, ethnographic objects, anatomical and natural history preparations, and items from Hunter's library and great coin collections.
