Macintosh interpretation

Some of the floors have little to see but the Mackintosh floor is very interesting with a mixture of furniture and pictures and helpful screens.

Though I'm not a particular fan of Mackintosh's designs and architecture, I enjoyed my trip to the Mackintosh house (or at least the rebuilt version of it). The guided tour was of some interest, but my wife (who has been before) reported that the guide was much less informative than she had experienced. The trip was quite short, and free,... More

Charles Rennie Mackintosh is Glasgow's architect extraordinaire. His house, at Glasgow University's Hunterian Museum, is a must-see. It's actually a reconstruction of the original house , but the furniture and decor are original, and it is mind boggling how ahead of the curve Mackintosh was. His design is amazing and, combined by the talent of his wife Margaret Macdonald, the... More

Even if you are not aware of this great designer, Rennie Mackintosh, it is well worth a visit. There is an amazing display of his furniture, art and architecture. There is the choice of a guided tour. Do not miss this.

As an Architect I really wanted to visit this museum when were in Glasgow in late June, 2015. Unfortunately, since we were in a car, there were no places to park and no directional signage. After several frustrating attempts to gain parking and access we departed for more accessible sites. Very disappointed!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Macintosh house. If you like Rennie Macintosh's work you should make every effort to visit this house. The designs of the furniture and the artwork are amazing.

A treasure trove of art and architecture all in mackintosh style. If you are an art lover you must visit. It is still worth a visit just to see the place if you are not an art lover

This tour can be accessed if you visit the Hunterian Art gallery. Get there when the art gallery opens at 10:00 a.m. and you will be able to get on the first guided tour of the Mackintosh house. The tour takes about 35 minutes and is worth the time. The house has been reconstructed from the original and contains many... More
