**The Mackintosh Building, currently under restoration, suffered a major fire on Friday 15 June 2018. For more information visit the Glasgow School of Art website.**

Visitors are warmly welcomed to discover Mackintosh's story at The Glasgow School of Art with GSA's award-winning student guides.

Due to the recent fire, The Glasgow School of Art's world famous Mackintosh building will be closed whilst restoration work gets underway. There is still plenty for visitors to do and see at The Glasgow School of Art, including a brand new visitor centre, shop and tour with profits from all visitor activities supporting the School.

Glasgow School of Art opened in 1845 and was originally located in the Merchant City but moved to MacLellan Galleries in 1869. A purpose built home for the School was created by alumnus Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and was to become his architectural masterwork.
