Definitely worth a visit if you are interested in either Charles or Margaret Rennie Mackintosh especially if you take the 30min tour. My 12 & 14 year old both remarked on how much they enjoyed it.

This is a very pretty house and nice to see. I think I would have learnt more if we had taken a tour but we were too late. The tours last a bout half an hour apparently . It costs £5 to take the tour or to look around without a guide. You can view the hall, dining room, lounge... More

As per the previous reviews, this was a real gem of a find. If you are interested in Charles Rennie Mackintosh & Margaret Mackintosh works of exquisite interior design and furniture, its well worth the walk from The Glasgow School of Art. From the outside the building looks like an ugly duckling as it was reconstructed in the 70's? Once... More

This small museum, part of The Hunterian Collection, is a replica of the house where Rennie Macintosh lived from 1906 to 1914, housing many of the pieces of furniture and artifacts that he used during his lifetime.

Easily worth a visit if you are visiting Glasgow. The whole city has impressive architecture but this is the jewell in the crown.

Mackintosh was a ground breaking architect and designer at the turn of the 19th century who wanted to challenge what he saw as the excesses of Victoriana. His work was influential long after his lifetime. He and his artist wife Margaret bought a Glasgow Victorian Terrace and altered the inside dramatically, furnishing it with his own idiosyncratic pieces. When the... More
