Hunterian Museum

A museum of anatomical specimens, the Hunterian Museum is located in London in the Royal College of Surgeons of England. (It is distinct from the University of Glasgow’s Hunterian.) The British government purchased John Hunter's collection of specimens, which was given to the College. The collection was supplemented by that of Richard Owen. The museum has undergone several projects to enlarge the space in the nineteenth century. The College was damaged by bombing in 1941 and two rooms and their collections were lost. The Museum reopened in 1963.
