Exploration and Inspiring Scots
To celebrate St Andrew's Day, The Hunterian at the University of Glasgow will host a special Night at the Museum event on Friday 27 November from 7.00pm – 10.00pm.
Inspired by The Hunterian collections, this exciting free social evening focuses on ‘Exploration’ and ‘Inspiring Scots’ connected to The Hunterian and the University of Glasgow. The Hunterian is Scotland’s oldest public museum and its collections are rich in items of great Scottish cultural significance.
Visitors will have the opportunity to see The Hunterian’s world class displays at night, set against a backdrop of film and image projections, live Scottish music performances, heritage items not normally on display, refreshments and a pop-up shop.
Themes for the night include ‘Antarctic Exploration’ with a recreation of the famous piper and penguin image from the Scottish National Antarctic Expedition to the frozen continent, ‘Exploring our Past’ which showcases the work of inspiring Scots including political reformer Thomas Muir and pioneering medical missionary David Livingstone, and ‘Exploring Art and Music’ which includes a live music programme, interactive activities and digital trail.
Night at the Museum has received support as part of the Scotland’s Winter Festivals programme of events.
Join us for this spectacular showcase of 'Exploration' and 'Inspiring Scots', set against the stunning background of The Hunterian collections.
