Scotland Street School - Museum of Education

Completed in 1906, the Scotland Street School was the last major work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Built as a school, it is now Glasgow City's Museum of Education after restoration work undertaken for the celebrations for the City of Culture (1990). Designed between 1903-6, Scotland Street School was Charles Rennie Mackintosh's last major commission in Glasgow. After major restoration in 1990, it is now a museum of education featuring restored period classrooms and cookery room, a permanent display on the history of Scottish education and a programme of temporary exhibitions and activities. New permanent displays on the history of the building and the installation of a public lift are currently being developed and are due to open early 2001.
