This is a house within a tenement building going back in time to see how people used to live in that era. Well worth a visit.

The volunteers where informative. Well worth the visit to see how people lived in tenement houses. It was lucky there are people who saved this place.

Love this place for the nostalgia of it all. Lots of the things in there remind me of my granny's place in Hamiltonhill. Kids today would think its from the dark ages lol.

Well worth a visit to learn about past life in Glasgow. The volunteers knew a lot about the home and were keen to talk to visitors.
