Location: Scotland Street, Glasgow

Scotland Street School Museum gives you the opportunity to show your children what school really used to be like in the 20th Century. This Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed building used to accommodate more than 1,200 pupils from the south side of the city, but eventually was forced to close its doors in 1979. As well as showcasing educational work and toys, the Scotland Street School Museum has a range of unique classrooms where visitors can experience lessons typical of the late 19th to mid-20th century. To truly give children a taste of what school life used to be like, youngsters can even get to try on authentic uniforms from the past.
