University of Glasgow and Hunterian Museum situated about 2 miles northwest of George Square.

The Unversity of Glasgow was founded in 1451 by Bishop William Turnbull, with the first classes taken in the Glasgow Cathedral buildings. This is the second oldest university in Scotland, after St Andrews. The university buildings expanded over the following centuries into a huge complex next to Glasgow Cathedral. This present University of Glasgow building, on the west side of Glasgow, was completed in 1870. Nothing of the Old University remains.

The museums in the University buildings are the Hunterian Museum, Hunterian Art Gallery, Mackintosh House, and the Zoology Museum.

The Hunterian Museum, is Scotland's oldest public museum with displays such as: Scottish mineral treasures, dinosaurs, fossils, world culture, and much more.
