Mackintosh had a huge influence on Glasgow and the wider Art Deco movement and his Glasgow "home" is therefore a must for anyone interested in the genre - well worth the entrance fee!

Really enjoyed our visit, took a morning tour and the guide was excellent, pointing out all the details. He, however, went a bit OTT when I accidentally touched a chair when pointing at it!

This isn't the actual house that Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife lived in. That got knocked down a while back, for unclear (to me) reasons. But it is an exact replica of it. It's a standard Glaswegian terraced house, so it's not huge. There...More

The museum is an impressive collection of Mackintosh furniture, the interior of the house coming from his original home which was demolished but the interior preserved. I certainly came out of there wanting to totally strip down the clutter of my life and have a...More

There is plenty of parking nearby as the attraction is in the university. You can park on the nearby streets where most students/faculty members park their cars - it will be empty on a Sunday. I am almost certain that tours... More
