You need to book a tour for this (no walKing around on your own), but it is really worthwhile. Best to go without toddlers. Really stunning original design from Mackintosh's own house - and well informed tour guide. A jewel in the crown of Glasgow's Mackintosh attractions!

So enjoyed the beautiful interiors in this reconstructed Mackintosh house. It made the start of our 'Mackintosh journey ' around Glasgow special and informative. It was particularly helpful to hear more of the hands - on talent of Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh and her delicate and beautiful use of form and colour in her art work. Her designs are breathtaking and... More

the original house was pulled down to build student cafeteria!! but fortunately all plans, interior designs etc were preserved so this is a recreation - it feels very real and shows the talent of both Macintoshes

To be virtually in the rooms of the Mackintoshes was literally breathtaking. I was disappointed in not being able to take photographs and would have liked more than the 30 minute guided tour which went too fast. But it was informative and amazing. I wish I could have done this earlier in the trip - to recover from the headiness... More

We found this museum quite difficult to find as it is hidden within the Hunterian Museum but definitely worth the effort. Entry is by guided tour only and lasts for approximately 30 minutes. Numbers are also limited. Our guide was knowledgeable and explained much of the detail around the Macintosh design. I had personally not realised how gifted his wife... More

This was a superb visitor experience. The house was well presents to reflect how it was when Mackintosh lived there. The guided tour was spot on.

Fantastic museum with an excellent and informative guided tour, one of the highlights of our recent trip to Glasgow. Fascinating to see how modern and forward-thinking the Mackintoshs were, and great to learn more about Margaret McDonald Mackintosh, who is equally talented but less well known than her husband.
