Mackintosh Building Tours >

Following a major fire in the Mackintosh Building on the 15 June 2018, The Glasgow School of Art visitor centre, shop and exhibition spaces in the neighbouring Reid building are currently closed to visitors.

Mackintosh at the GSA Tours and Mackintosh’s Glasgow Walking Tours will also cease to operate during this closure period.

GSA's online shop continues to run, with every purchase supporting the School. Fulfilment of online shop orders will recommence shortly, when access to stock, housed in less affected areas of the campus, is restored. Customers with pending orders will be contacted directly.

GSA’s Archives and Collections, including the School’s recognised collection of original Mackintosh Furniture, were moved out of the Mackintosh Building after the 2014 fire and are therefore unaffected by the 2018 fire.

All the works made in response to the 2014 fire (including reconstructed Library lights, reproduction furniture and clocks) were also located elsewhere, and are unaffected by the 2018 fire. Some plaster casts were in the Mackintosh Building but until we have access to the building and are able to undertake a forensic investigation it is impossible to say what has been lost. 

GSA’s Archives and Collections centre at the Whisky Bond can accommodate visitors and answer any enquiries  regarding holdings. To make an appointment or enquiry, please email archives@gsa.ac.uk or telephone 0141 566 1418.
