The School Of Art - Review

The Glasgow school of art is a part of the old city of Glasgow making it full of beautiful old buildings. The famous Mackintosh building which is a part of the campus is the main attraction for tourists here.

The Mackintosh building aside, there are many lovely things to see here. being an arts school the atmosphere is full of enthusiasm and several events are arranged in the premises very regularly. They also have a charming exhibition of the artwork of the students from the institution.

One wouldn’t think that a school would be a touristic site but this one surprises you. With several places to see, getting a feel of the place is a must for any Glasgow tourist. They also have a shop in case you are tempted to take any of the gorgeous pieces of art, made by the students, home.

The School Of Art, Glasgow Reviews

  • What a great historical building with very knowledgeable and convivial students. The building was designed by the famous architect mackintosh. The building is very beautiful. It would be better if we could see the studios with their huge north windows witch was a shame. Over all great experience would go again sometime. Leave a like please 👍🏻

  • The 45 minute tour is well worth the small charge. Our student was very much up to speed with the history of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Although the amount of his work you see is limited to a few pieces of furniture at the end of the tour, what she told us added detail to the story which helped enormously when seeing other CRM exhibits in the City.

  • Take some time to join a tour by one of the graduate students. Interesting history of Mackintosh and beautiful exhibition of Mackintosh's furniture. The building of the GSA is worth a quick view (both in- and outside), but most spaces inside are not accessible. By participating in the tour, you also contribute to the reconstruction of the Mackintosh school, opposite to the GSA.

  • The Mack is expected to open again as soon as restoration is complete. Can’t wait to 2019! Cute gift shop funding the restorations with some really good pieces designed by students at a very professional level . The Reid is an art school building where actual teaching takes place, not open to visitors unless registered during an Open day. There is a guided tour related to the Macintosh building.

  • One of the places to see on a Glasgow visit if you are interested in C. R. Mackintosh. Paid £7 for a 45 minutes tour. It supports the restoration of the original building which caught fire in 2014. It was a Hungarian student in her final year who conducted the tour. It was a pleasure listening to her. Loved the anecdote about the chair from the tea room on Sauchiehall.
