A journey back in time, Tenement House details what life would have been like in the city's tenements (or apartment buildings), the places where  the majority of Glaswegians would have lived in from the mid-19th-century onward. This 'museum'—really a historic home—is a typical tenement flat of the 1890s, preserved with many original fixtures and fittings: coal fires, gas lamps and box bed in the kitchen. Its former resident, Miss Agnes Toward, hardly threw anything out from 1911 to 1965, so there are displays of all sorts of memorabilia.
