This is the ultimate attraction for Mackintosh lovers. 4 floors of his furniture in there original setting as Mackintosh would have had them. Although the house is a re-construction the furniture is original. My favourites were the white sitting room and bedroom, but its all great.

The museum is free, with some papers in different languages to visit the different rooms of this house decorated by Makintosh and his wife.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon. Very interesting reconstruction of his house. Free too! I really liked the work he did. Worth a visit even if you are not particularly into art galleries at it is separate.

Loved walking round in a design rich environment. Love the fixtures and fittings but so much of the Mackintosh style in a small space was very overpowering. Love the house.

For Mackintosh fans, this is an absolute must! Be aware that the original building itself was demolished, but Mackintosh didn't design the building. The interior, which he did design, was preserved, and this is it.

The Mackintosh House is well worth a visit. It's amazing to see the rooms set out as they would have been with Charles Rennie Mackintosh's furniture designs and décor, which are absolutely stunning and so contemporary - back in the day, his beautiful designs were way ahead of their time!
