Natural History Societies and Museums in Glasgow

The recent talk by Richard Sutcliffe , the Research Manager of Natural History for Glasgow Museums , highlighted the close relationship between the numerous and varied natural history societies in Glasgow and the city's museums. This partnership , which has existed since the Victorian era , has been responsible for the many generous donations , both large and small ,which have been given by the societies' members to the museums , from the past to the present day ,making the Natural History acquisitions the largest part of Glasgow Museums collections. The significance , enthusiasm and influence of these natural history societies has lasted the test of time , with their membership , most importantly amongst the younger generation , increasing every year .
