Visit the Tenement House, follow the trail, collect the clues, solve the puzzle and win your chocolate-y reward! The trail will help you and your family explore and learn more about the stories of the property.
At first glance, the Tenement House appears to be an ordinary middle-class tenement from the late 19th century, standing in Garnethill. However, when you step inside, the faithfully restored four rooms appear as if frozen in time and provide a rare glimpse into life in Glasgow in the early 20th century.
From 7 - 10 April. Each trail sheet costs £4. Pre-book here.
