How to find us

The Mackintosh Building, currently under restoration, suffered a major fire on Friday 15 June 2018.  No one was injured.  The site remains under the control of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and consequently all Glasgow School of Art buildings will remain closed until further notice.  If you have already enquired or booked a tour, we will be in touch as soon as possible with an update.  Bookings made up to and including Sunday 24th June will be automatically refunded.  If you have placed an order in our online shop, this will be fulfilled as soon as possible.  Thank you for your patience.
