Scotland Street School Museum

Scotland Street School was Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s last major commission in Glasgow showing the genius of the city’s most famous architect.

Impressive glass towers, a magnificent tiled entrance hall and unique stonework all showcase MacKintosh’s mastery of the interplay of light and space. The museum can be used by private and corporate clients as a fascinating venue for dining, daytime or evening meetings, receptions and product launches.

The Drill Hall on the ground floor is most suitable for large dinner parties and social gatherings. Medium sized receptions are best housed in this hall with the surrounding stairwells, corridors and the balcony which overlooks this area. The stairwell itself is an impressive illustration of Mackintosh’s understanding of natural light and line and is an ideal space for drinks service and entertainment.

The Kingston Conference Room on the first floor is a bright and well equipped location for meetings, presentations and smaller dinner gatherings.

The small cinema-style Audio Visual Room is most suitable for smaller presentations and talks for up to 40 people.

This venue is suitable for:

  • Community Events
  • Standing Receptions
  • Banquets
  • Meetings
