Discover the story of Scottish education over the past century
Formerly a school, the Scotland Street Museum made for an elaborately designed council building. Like all of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s work, the museum has many intricate design features.
It used to teach mainly children from ship building and engineering families in Glasgow, which adds to the history of the building. The museum focuses on the history from 1906, when the building was completed.
The former school was still in working order as a teaching establishment as late as the 70s, shutting down in 1979.
The exterior of the building means you can instantly tell its a Mackintosh work. The window panes and brickwork are Mackintosh down to a tee.
