Wouldn't have known about this place if my mum hadn't been such a fan of Mackintosh. It's only a 30 minute tour (which is free) but it's absolutely amazing. I'm not a fan of Mackintosh art myself but this place is well worth a visit. It's a few minutes walk from one of the City Sightseeing tour bus stops too.

Located in the Hunterian - Mackintosh House gives a great insight into brilliant couple whose impact on design should not be underestimated.

A must for fans of all things Mac & Mrs Mac. If you haven't been this is a guide led only tour of half hour which you should go to even if it's out of your way! The surrounding history of the Hunterian gallery and museum and Glasgow Uni will give you more than enough to look at to fill... More

Tours every half hour, limited to 12 people. House is not in its original location but contains original furnishings and decor from Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret MacDonald's house. Good to have a guide who was informative and always offered to answer questions. Amazing it was free! Also well worth looking round the Hunterian Gallery as well, there were a... More

I really love Rennie Mackintosh's work and have been to this tour 4 times with different group of friends. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable so fire away if you have any questions! The tours are every half-hour and the last one is at 4PM (if I am not mistaken). It is also a first come first go basis so... More

Not my cup of tea but I'm glad I saw it. The staff were very knowledgeable and I'm sure others would get a lot from a visit.

Hugely impressive and a wonderful insight into the minds and lives of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret MacDonald and the Glasgow Style. Tour a bit rushed to cram into half an hour, but really good, nonetheless. Amazed this was free. We left a thank you donation, since this wonderful place must rely heavily on donations.

Accessed through the hunterian art musuem this house is the reproduction of the original home owned by two forward thinking designers. It won't take you to long to walk around, we didn't have the tour mentioned below so you could have as much or as little time as you wished. Quite an unusual pair, who designed a futuristic house over... More
