Scotland Street School Museum
Scotland Street School was designed between 1903 and 1906 as Mackintosh’s last major commission in Glasgow, and it shows the mature architect’s genius. Marvel at the impressive leaded glass towers, magnificent tiled drill hall, carved stonework and his mastery of the interplay of light and space. Find out more about the story of the building of the school in the Mackintosh room, where you can see his designs for the building and learn more about his quarrels with the School Board.
You will also find reconstructed classrooms, which tell the story of education in Glasgow. There are rooms dedicated to learning in the Victorian period, during World War II and in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as the cookery room.
