Hunter House Museum

Located on Maxwellton Road in the Calderwood district of East Kilbride, the Hunter House Museum is located 1¼ miles (2 km) northeast of the town centre. Originally known as Long Calderwood Farm, this was the birthplace of medical pioneers William and John Hunter (1718-83 and 1728-93), and the museum tells their story. The elder brother's collection formed the core of the Hunterian Museum in Glasgow University, while his younger brother's anatomical collection was bought by the nation and given to the Royal College of Surgeons in London.

There are also displays concerning the history of East Kilbride and its development as a New Town.

The museum is open every day between April and September.
