Mackintosh Architecture. If you are really into Mackintosh, then you must visit this. A few items of furniture (shame really) but you have the opportunity to view detail drawings of buildings/ extensions with their associated models/ photos.

A great chance to see some of the wider context of Rennie Mackintosh's work - especially after visiting his Hill House previously, and visiting the Mackintosh house earlier today. We got a really strong sense of how his architectural practice fitted into the Glasgow of his time, his collaboration with his two senior colleagues, the evolution of his work, and... More

Well worth the trek out to the University to see this lovely little gallery (William Whitworth architect) and the Mackintosh House.Well displayed treasures. It is a pity that they don't allow photographs as there are very few reproductions of the collection.

Small gallery within teh grounds of Glasgow University well worth a visit to see an excellent cllection of paintings by Whistler and The Glasgow Boys. Close by you also have the Macintosh white room and the Huntarian Museum which are also worth visting.

The collection is foremost in Rex Whistler and The Glasgow Boys. Entrance is free and well worth an hour or so wandering round and admiring the beautiful works of art. The signage could have been a bit more expansive, but on the whole, this is a must see on any trip to Glasgow!

A little too academic to our taste. It seemed a bit overpowering. The staff were polite however not really geared to our minds to the tourist visitor. Shop staff did try too.
