How wonderful see how Charles and Margaret lived and what they chose of their creations for their everyday home. There is heavy security, fair enough, and small mumbers allowed. What a privileged insight.

The house has been carefully reassembled as part of the Hunterian Art Gallery. Guided tours are available in the morning, with a max of 10 people per tour. We were there as the museum opened and were happily the only 2 on the first tour....More

Perfect representation of the work of Charles and Margaret Mackintosh, very important local artists. Young people in each room with helpful comments. Beautiful design.

I came to visit on a short trip to the city. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. I knew little about Mackintosh before I came to Glasgow. I am a fan now! I would recommend that you visit this place.

Worth the visit if you're into design history. But beware the entrance is extremely confusing. The original door faces the street but there are no steps up to it and so you have to go into the museum and enter. Well preserved and very interesting!

This is a wonderful house (transferred from its original place nearby). The sitting room plus library was my highest highlight in Glasgow.

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
