My favourite place in Glasgow. Go early in the morning if you can so that it when you are in the drawing room it has the feeling of being your place. The room looks best in the morning light. The house and rooms are a lovely example of Mackintosh's work in what was his home. The house has been loving... More

I wasn't disappointed by the McIntosh House as I had heard so much about it! It was really interesting, as their ideas and designs were well in keeping with today.! It was a shame it wasn't in their real home but the museum had presented it as best they could.

If you are interested in Mackintosh then you'll be sure not to miss this gem. However the house is worth visiting even if you're not overly familiar with his work. Please note that the tour is short (a well-timed 30 mins) and is obligatory, although the staff are incredibly knowledgable and are able to give a lot of background information.... More

This reconstruction of the Mackintosh's home demonstrates how forward thinking they were. What an impact the white carpets, furniture, unusual lights and decor must have made to their visitors who mostly lived in dark Victorian surroundings! Unlike other museums in Glasgow there is a small charge to enter this one. Unfortunately we were not there for a tour but staff... More

We visited this first before going to The Glasgow Art Gallery to see the Mackintosh exhibition there and I'm glad we did it this way round. The guided tour gave a comprehensive "feel" for Mackintosh and his wife and what was important to him when designing the interior of his home. For me it informed his "professional" work of architecture... More

Mackintosh was a superb designer and his house is just out of this world. There are very knowledgeable staff in every room who can answer any question you might raise.
