A museum of School education in Glasgow. Located in a former school designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh between 1903 and 1906. The building is one of Glasgow's foremost architectural attractions.

Let the kids see what it was like to attend a strict Victorian school from over a hundred years ago. The building is an iconic Charles Rennie MacIntosh building also. And it’s free like all Glasgow museums.

Scotland Street School was Mackintosh’s final major commission in his home city which is now a museum dedicated to telling the story of education in Scotland. Great for kids. Catch the Horrible Heedie Tour if you can.
