Scotland Street School Museum, a working school until the late 1970s, hosts regular fun family events. It offers a fascinating insight as to what school days were like in the reign of Queen Victoria, during World War II, and in the 1950s and 60s, in three reconstructed classrooms. Architecturally significant, the school was designed by Scotland's most famous architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. His designs for the school are on display. Refreshments can be taken in the Willow Cafe.

This was my first visit though I had heard a lot about this particular museum - a school which was designed by Rennie McIntosh. The 'cafe' leaves a lot to be desired but thankfully that was not the object of the visit. Classrooms are laid...More

We visited here this week for the first time. The main reason for the visit is because of the architect-Charles Rennie Mackintosh and on that score it doesn't disappoint as it is a lovely, bright airy building with many typical Mackintosh features. What we didn't...More
