Scotland Street School Museum

The school was designed by Glasgow’s most celebrated designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh between 1902-1906. It functioned as a school until 1979 and is now the Scotland Street School Museum. The building is a fantastic example of Mackintosh’s architectural style and you can study the design for the building in the Mackintosh room.

The museum tells the story of education in Scotland from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth century. You can see what school day were like in the reign of Queen Victoria, during World War II and in the 1950s and 1960s, in the three reconstructed classrooms. You can also dress up as a pupil from the past.

They often have temporary exhibitions to come and see and regularly host family events and activities.
