Glasgow Doors Open Day provides you with a unique chance to fully explore our building in a single visit - Visit our beautiful 19th century building to see historical medical instruments, rare books and art, and find out how we’ve helped doctors, surgeons and dentists to stay at the cutting edge for over 400 years.
The College was founded in 1599 and moved into its current home in 1862. Today the College is a bustling centre of medical education and examination, as well as being an accredited museum.
You can see some of our amazing collections of medical instruments, rare books and archives, and learn more about medicine and surgery in old Glasgow. We'll also have a showcase of the exciting work we're doing to combine our heritage collections with Medical Visualisation technology.
And we're not just about medicine! You can also view our copy of John James Audubon's breath-taking "Birds of America" and browse the artwork on display throughout the College.
We're open on Sunday 22nd September from 10am to 4pm - There's no need to book and all are welcome.
We're delighted to be taking part in the Glasgow Doors Open Day Festival 2019. Over 200 open buildings, events and walks are taking place between the 16th and 22nd September and you can see the full programme here.
