This simple little house was rebuilt as part of the art gallery and I'm so glad I did. Rennie Mackintosh was a design genius. Each room was better than the last. I'm smitten with the man and want to steal some of his ideas now! I highly recommend a visit here.

This is a 30 minute tour of the interiors of the Mackintosh house, part of the Hunterian museum. The interiors are quite interesting but accessible only by stairs. The tours are led by knowledgeable guides who clearly are enthusiastic about their jobs.

We were not sure what to expect with this tour but it was very interesting. I do not think you can pre-book therefore during holidays I would suspect you would have to arrive early and wait. Tours are run with military precision and last 30 minutes. This is probably almost long enough but you do get the impression that the... More

A short but well presented tour from knowledgable guides was admirable and well informed and is another must for a Glasgow trip.

Be sure to join the free tour to get all the background as the story behind the house and it's furnishings is fascinating. Well worth a visit

Looks like nothing from the outside but step into the Macintosh house and all that changes, the quality of light and the colour and the design are just incredible in their "natural" setting. They make much more sense like this - and even provide some excellent ideas for refurbishment.

I must admit that I knew nothing about Mackintosh before vising Glasgow. In fact I only stumbled across the tour. So needlessly I was very plesantly surprised by the tour. The guides were very informative and passionate about the tour. It was a nice step back in time to how Mackintosh lived. As it is a free tour it is... More

This is a faithful recreation of the interior of the Mackintosh house which was situated nearby but sadly demolished. Enlightened citizens saved the interiors so that future generations could appreciate his decorative genius. The guided tour is short but adequate to get a sense of his vision. There is no photography permitted and tours must be booked in advance. There... More

The old house bought by Mackintosh and renovated freely to change the interior to the modern style reflecting their design flavour, was actually not this house. This is the duplicated house carefully show the original condition with their own furniture donated to the university. The guide was very nice and answered all the questions attendees had. If you were not... More
