Rebuilt within that Hunterian Art Gallery, these Rennie & Margaret Mackintosh's rooms that formed part of the house in Glasgow. Most of the furnishings are genuine and the rooms give the flavour of these two talented people who were years ahead of their time in...More

Truly a must see sight for both Mackintosh and Arts & Crafts period fans. Lots of original furniture and decorative items, arranged pretty much as shown in period photographs. The original residence was torn down in the 1960s, but the spaces have been faithfully recreated...More

We enjoyed seeing the replica of the house and items, only some of which were original and of course stunning. I think there are better Mackintosh 'museums' near by.

This is the only part of the museum they charge for but it is a nominal fee. It is a quick tour through but it is a narrow house and you have to be able to climb stairs. If you're into architecture and period furniture...More

Being a Mackintosh fan I wanted to see his home (??!) Arriving 1,5 hour before the official closing we could hardly get in, as the reception "closed" the museum earlier. The house itself is interesting and giving you a feeling of being used sometimes, but...More

An absolute gem, especially for anyone with an interest in architecture, art, aesthetics, or interior design. The museum is a partial reconstruction of the early 1900s home and artistic creation of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh. (Considering that Margaret was also a prominent...More

This was not the original house. It had been modified. This is a guided tour. We were conducted at fairly fast pace, and out in less than 45 minutes. It wasn't long enough to carefully appreciate all the pieces of furniture. We enjoyed it thoroughly,...More

This is the faithful relocation of the house to a museum setting. There are four spaces on three floors. It may not be worth the admission fee.

The house adjoins the Hunterian Art Gallery and is approached through it's not too obvious entrance. If you are a member of the Art Collections Fund, then it is free. A limited number of people are allowed in at one time and you have to...More

Housed inside the Hunterian Gallery on the University of Glasgow grounds. It's a purpose built space to rehouse the original which had previously been just across the round. It cost £5 to join a guided tour and they only take 12 round on a half...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
