Just back from visiting The Mackintosh House at the Hunterian.Fantastic place ; beautiful tribute to two amazing people so far ahead of their time (Charles Rennie Mackintosh And his wife Margaret ) . The tour is free , lasts half an hour and is very informative. Not to be missed if you like the Mackintosh style !!!

I went to the Hunterian to primarily view the reconstruction of Rennie MacIntosh's home. It was a fascinating peek into the application of his design in his personal living space. To tour the rooms, you are led by a guide. Groups are small... there were only four others on my tour. We were not rushed but given enough time in... More

Hunter's medical instruments and chemical apparatus were rather poorly displayed and explained; but the fossil plesiosaur was brilliant. The artefacts from the Antonine Wall could have been better exhibited - and the attendants seemed rather unwilling to help visitors.

An enjoyable visit to the museum while staying in Glasgow. My first full experience seeing whistler exhibit. The MacIntosh visit is attached to this museum and you must sign up for a tour in order to visit.

All kinds of interesting displays. Lots of information to process about science, natural science and art. Challenging to see the experiments and displays and relate them to what tools and devices we have today.

Spent a Sunday here at an exhibition of the works o Charles Rennie MacIntosh noted for his architectural design which can be found around Glasgow. This was followed by a tour of the Mackintosh house which makes up part off the Hunterian Museum, University of Glasgow. Not to be missed.

Very hard to find in the labyrinth of buildings and corridors of the University. We were very impressed with the Antonine Roman Wall display.

Didn't know much about the museum, so we were pleasantly surprised by the fascinating collections displayed there. From medical studies to ancient maps. Very worthwhile to make the effort to get there. Just a short walk from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
