Museums & Galleries

Housed in the former offices of the Glasgow Herald newspaper, The Lighthouse opened in 1999 when Glasgow was named the UK City of Architecture and Design. Four galleries over four floors give space to temporary exhibitions and there's also a special review gallery dedicated to new and innovative designers. The center has an interactive, creative play environment for young children and a permanent Mackintosh Interpretation Center, for which there is a small entrance charge. Access to the building itself, a converted Mackintosh design, is free and there are several bars and restaurants on the premises.
