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.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Glasgow itinerary 5 days.
- Make sure that you visit here. The art collection is quite brilliant.

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.
to the review of Baa! below, i can only quietly respond as follows. our taxes pay for social and health issues in scotland...be grateful they do please. Yes, some of the money goes to the arts. remember you can walk into almost any gallery/museum in scotland for free! As for the art school....put aside for a moment that this beautiful building has been providing inspiration and daily beauty in the eyes of our art students for the last 4 or 5 generations...that should be reason enough to save it!! The fact that is a CRM design and probably his greatest work, should resonate with all glaswegians and all scots. this man has brought in countless millions of pounds to the city and country in tourism since his passing.(and the beautiful margaret mcdonald mcintosh of course) Yes, we have other CRM designs that are beautiful in the city, but please , take a minute, breathe and ponder the importance of this building historically and socially before you ask for its funding to be removed.
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.
