Tenement houses were the most popular form of housing in Glasgow in the 19th and early 20th centuries. They served a broad range of social classes. However, most of the Tenement houses were demolished and replaced by tower blocks.
The Tenement House in Glasgow, restored by the National Trust, is like a time capsule, provides a unique glimpse of life in the Tenement house in the early 20th century.
On the first floor of the building, you will find the cashier and a small exhibition about Miss Agnes Toward, who lived there for more than 50 years. The house is located on the second floor and lighted by authentic gas lighting. So it is pretty dark inside. However, you can still be impressed by all the old items and the house's unique structure, that able to provide many solutions for daily life in a small area.
Don't forget to check the opening hours - they change by the season.
