Scotland Street School Museum
Now as a museum, it tells the story of 100 years of education in Scotland, from the late 19th century to the late 20th century. When Scotland Street School first opened on 15 August 1906, it educated the children of families mainly working in shipbuilding and engineering on the south side of Glasgow. Scotland Street School was designed by the renowned Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and is now a museum that is a must-see for Mackintosh fans. The school was designed by Glasgow’s most celebrated architect at the start of the 20th century and was a functioning school up until 1979. Nowadays it is a museum that tells the story of education in Scotland over a hundred years. The building is a wonderful example of Mackintosh’s architectural style and includes a Mackintosh room which holds the architect’s designs for the building.
