Scotland Street School was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh between 1902-1906.
Mackintosh is Glasgow’s most celebrated architect, and Scotland Street School was a functioning school up until 1979. It is now a museum.
It tells the story of education in Scotland over a hundred years, from the late 19th century to the late 20th century.
The museum is a must-see for Mackintosh fans. The building is a wonderful example of his architectural style. It includes a Mackintosh room where you can study the architect’s designs for the building.
