Scotland Street School Museum

Museum of Education | Glasgow G5 8QB
Phone: 0141 287 0500

Located smack bang in the middle of the Southside’s industrial graveyard is the perfectly preserved Scotland Street School Museum. Designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh at the turn of the century, the site was a functioning primary school up until 1979. It has since been transformed into a museum, and tells the story of the Scottish education establishment, with exhibits detailing the schools development from the 19th century up until the present day. The pastel corridors, wide staircases and heavy-set doors are suffused with an eerie kind of living history, one that inspires a very personal sort of nostalgia. In other words, it’ll make you feel old.    

Some also say the place is a hive of paranormal activity, including staff members, so if you like the idea of coming face-to-face with some terrifying spectre in Victorian attire, you’ve all the more reason to visit. The museum also functions as an occasional venue – see website for more details.
