Scotland Street School Museum

South-west of the centre of Glasgow, in the area of Kingston, Scotland Street School Museum provides a fascinating insight into the history of school education in the city. Fittingly set within a former school, the building is one of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s architectural masterpieces and an attraction in its own right. The celebrated architect based his design on Rowallan Castle and Falkland Palace in the early 1900s and it was still a functioning school until 1979. Visitors can experience what life was like in a Victorian classroom, dress up in various styles of school uniform and learn about Mackintosh’s arguments with the School Board of Glasgow around the intricacies and expense of his designs.
