Had a good look around the museum. It is a bit hidden within Glasgow College grounds and up a hill but worth it for a look at the exhibits. We combined a visit here with the Kelvingrove museum. It is located in an old building...More

Enjoyed visit but nothing else to see as not open at this time also no photos allowed so think £6 admission is a bit steep.

Initially it was difficult to find but it was good once I had arrived. Unfortunately I was unable to visit Mackintosh House due to it closing, and I was not informed of this when I arrived at the gallery. Overall good experience though.

Sorry I don't know the answer. I was only in Glasgow 2 days last month on a short break. I do not live there and so do not keep up to date on what's on.
