The RCS Archives and Collections is a rich resource that provides an extraordinary insight into the heritage of RCS and the arts in Scotland. Since its foundation as the Glasgow Athenaeum in 1847, the Conservatoire’s archives have accrued many important collections of instruments, manuscripts, artworks, photographs, performance ephemera and memorabilia which are made available via our archives search room facility.

The Conservatoire’s Archives & Collections are located on level six of the Whisky Bond, 2 Dawson Road, Glasgow, G4 9SS, a short walk from Wallace Studios at Speirs Locks.
