Thomson Building

Thomson BuildingThe Thomson Building has probably the most unfortunate location on campus, being tucked away just next to the grand Sir Gilbert Scott Building, the University’s Main Building. Still, it does contain within it something quite exquisite: the Anatomy Museum, now known as the Laboratory of Human Anatomy. It was named in honour of Allen Thomson (1809-1884), Regius Professor of Anatomy from 1848 to 1877. The building, originally built around the same time as the Sir Gilbert Scott Building, was extended in 1908 and 1977.
