Your University, One Photo at a Time

Hunterian Zoology Museum [Museum Week]

Hunterian Zoology Museum

Stepping out of the Main Building and the main Hunterian Museum, we have the Graham Kerr Building close by. Sir John Graham Kerr was named Regius Professor of Natural History at the University of Glasgow in 1902. This title was renamed Regius Professor of Zoology the following year.

The Zoology wing of the Hunterian Museum is located within the Graham Kerr Building, which is open to the public. In addition, the students of Zoology use the museum space for research and teaching, as well as independent study, as you can tell by the photo (taken a few weeks before spring exams last academic year).

More information on the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery can be found at, as well as its supplementary Facebook Page, Flickr Group, and on Twitter.
This post is a part of Museum Week (July 20th – 26th)

    Zoology, also spelled zoölogy, is the branch of biology that focuses on the structure, function, behavior, and evolution of animals. The zoologist’s pronunciation of “zoology” is /zo?’?l?d??/.
