I had a bit of trouble finding this place. I trawled unhappily through the anatomical exhibits at the Hunterian museum first (sorry I had a bit too much experience of this sort of thing in a "past" life) before realising that the Art Gallery and Mackintosh house were across the road. Doh! Then on arrival I wasn't too keen to... More

Bursting out of William Whitfield's Hunterian Art Gallery, Alien style, is Margaret Macdonald and Charles Rennie Mackintosh's forensically recreated Florentine Terrace home. Informative tours throw light on the couple's abstract appropriation of natural forms and obsessive attention to detail in a house that doubled as a showcase for their work. The transition from earth to sky as you ascend the... More

This house is an excellent place to visit when in Glasgow. The house is absolutely beautiful inside and gives you a real feel for the Mackintosh style. The house is free to visit and a guided tour is given so that you can learn some history about Mackintosh and his wife Margaret. I would say that this is my favourite... More

A real gem - on 4 floors displaying Macintosh and MacDonalds home and showroom - combine it with a visit to Kelvingrove Museum. You need to book your tickets - free- but only 24 people can see it each hour

The house has been recreated within a modern building but with such care and attention to detail that you feel you are in their original home. Unfortunately there were not enough staff for a guided tour but the lady on the ground floor answered all our questions.

What a super visit! We were delighted by the (free) half-hour tour, giving access to this accurate replica of the Mackintosh family home. The furnishings are exquisite and the whole experience was memorable. Well done, Uni. of Glasgow, for making this important venue so accessible!

The Mackintosh House is part of the distributed Hunterian Museum on the campus of the University of Glasgow. We visited on a snowy Saturday morning and, along with a handful of other visitors, were offered a free tour by a student volunteer. My wife is an enormous admirer of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and it was thrilling to actually stand in... More

The Macintosh House is a must-visit attraction, best seen after visiting the Glasgow School of Art as t will show the more domestic interiors designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
