beatiful interior designed by the Mackintoshes, certainly worth the visit, the only drawback was the duration of the tour which was a little bit too fast to admire everything

The Mackintoshes and their circle created beautiful homes whose style still feels relevant today. I can pretend the Mackintosh House is my own, be moved by the simplest of lines/designs or this time by the sun shining through a stained glass panel. I'd love to be able to sit and put my feet up!

Don't miss this. You will surely love the interior of this house. Love the design of using maximum natural light.

I believe they've only just started letting people in minus the tour guide (not sure how accurate that is, maybe it's just that they've stopped running the tours or didn't offer us one).

A must see for any art lover. We asked at reception desk on arrival for a tour time and only had to wait 20 minutes. At time of reviewing, they weren't accepting telephone bookings as people were booking and then not turning up. Probably because it is free.

I was lucky enough to be able to be squeezed into a tour when I just randomly turned up but it's better to book. The designs in the house are amazing and the art gallery in the same building had a great Whistler exhibition - and it was all free.

Another must-see on the Glasgow cultural tour. Not only the Mackintosh House itself but the adjoining gallery including many Whistler works.

I loved the whole layout and the furniture was so trendy still, I think that some furniture maker could copy some of the items especially the fireplaces and the big square seats, the dining furniture is already being done, but as part of the tour hop on hop off, its a definate
