Scotland Street School Museum

The Scotland Street School Museum was designed by Scottish artist & designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The massive and magnificent building is one of the city’s foremost architectural attractions visited by countless tourists every year. It was originally built for the School Board of Glasgow and now it serves as a museum. It details the history of the country’s education system from the time of Queen Victoria right through to the swinging 60s. Visitors can learn all about what it was like to be a student, sit in reconstructed classrooms or even dress up and take a photo. There is also a documentary about the museum shot in 2018 by Margaret Moore.
