Scotland Street School Museum is a museum of school education in Glasgow, Scotland, in the district of Kingston. It is located in a former school designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh between 1903 and 1906. The building is one of Glasgow's foremost architectural attractions. It is located next to the Shields Road subway station.

Mackintosh based the design of the school on Rowallan Castle in Ayrshire and Falkland Palace. The building features a pair of windowed Scottish baronial style tower staircases and a tiled Drill Hall. During the building's construction, Mackintosh frequently battled the school board about the design . The total cost for the building was £34,291, which was over budget. The school was designed for an enrolment of 1,250. However, by the 1970s the area was experiencing urban decay, and the school's enrolment fell to under 100. The school closed in 1979.
