#2 of 49 in Shopping in Glasgow
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.

  • I had a tour which was just under an hour. Was very cheep, and was definitely worth it
  • What a waste of public funds painstakingly restoring it. The money could be better spent on I dunno maybe the NHS, food banks, the homeless. I think we should be solving our social and health problems in this country before spending money on nice things for tourists and the rich. Thats the whole problem with Scotland. Were like children. Any money we get we hit the toy shop.
