The Mackintosh House perfectly captures the innovative design of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margret MacDonald. It's brilliant to see there work as wanted it presented. Mackintosh is a true Glaswegian icon and The Mackintosh House is a perfect tribute to his life and works.

Lovely interiors and interesting experience for Mackintosh fans. Appreciated the opportunity to see design elements and original furniture in a residential setting. Internal staircase is atmospheric but quite steep. 6 L admission supports the maintenance and staffing of the installation which is worthwhile considering the...More

Visited as a treat within a group of alumni. Imaginative reconstruction of Mackintosh home that is filled with original materials and captures the mood of their property. Intriguing and beautiful. Full marks university of Glasgow for investing in city's cultural heritage. Steep stairs make it...More

Paid for the a.m. tour (you can go solo in the afternoons apparently) but although the tour guide tells you interesting stuff the pace of the tour is quick and there's no time to linger and look.

This beautifully recreated section of the Mackintosh house is well with a visit - especially on a sunny day (not too rare!). The enthusiastic and well informed staff are really helpful and happy talk about the rooms and lifestyle of the mackintoshes.

This is a great place to visit. It is a beautiful reconstruction of the house the Rennie Mackintoshes lived in. The furniture and decor are amazing. The only downside to our visit was the very grumpy and unhelpful man on the ticket desk when we...More

The interior of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret Macdonald's house has been painstakingly recreated as part of the Hunterian Art Gallery. A fascinating experience from which you can see how their work developed over the years in Glasgow. It's a beautiful house. Tours...More

This is an absolute must for architecture fans but I think it's absolutely worth a quick visit for anyone who enjoys the Glasgow style. Plus, after any time at all in Glasgow, you'll be so familiar with Charles Rennie Mackintosh that I rather dare you...More
