Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web
Responsible for educating some of Scotland's leading contemporary artists, The Glasgow School of Art is also listed as one of the top-ten architecture schools in the world. Appropriately, the school's campus is an architectural marvel, which visitors tour at an appointed time with a guide. The campus' central building, the Mackintosh, is the only building open to the public and houses a gallery that exhibits renowned contemporary artwork. Also known as the Mackintosh Museum, it is one of Glasgow's most popular cultural sites. If you're in town during the Degree Show, you can visit all the studios in the Mackintosh building and see the graduating year's final projects. A visit to The Glasgow School of Art represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Glasgow trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • The Mackintosh Building itself is a work of art. The original library was exquisite and we hope to return to visit again when the restoration is complete. Anyone with an eye or appreciation for hand crafts and art will love this tour.

  • Beautiful exhibitio and great Art Scho
  • When I saw it in August 2016 it was covered in scaffolding for renovations after the fire. It's not worth visiting until after the works are finished.
  • The historic buildings are slowly being surrounded by poured concrete and steel panelled eyesores. A shame, as the original buildings are beautiful.
