Charles Rennie Mackintosh was Glasgow's best known person and a visit to his reconstructed house is a must for anyone with even a vague interest in architecture and design. What is really amazing is how cool, clean and uncluttered his house was, considering that he...More

Of all the Mackintosh buildings and museum exhibits we visited, including the Hill House, we found this the most interesting and beautiful -- a perfect and pleasing integration of design, furniture, decor, and art.

This exhibit is a must for anyone interested in architecture and design by Mackintosh. Well displayed and the guides are great with insight and information about the man, the pieces and the family.

This is a must-see for any Rennie Mackintosh design lover. The history and talents of he and his wife are displayed here very tastefully. The docents have the stories, and interesting they are!

Small but wonderful place to see the work of Margaret MacDonald and MacIntosh. So much of the interiors was work done by Margaret. Yes replica house but many original furnishings. Very helpful and informative docents.

Altho the house is a reconstruction, all the interiors/furnishings are authentic. Visiting the house is a fabulous entry into the world of Macintosh. A visit to the Willow Tea Room is another must while you are in Glasgow.

My visit here was after the adjacent Hunterian Art Gallery closed for an extended period, but that allowed my full attention to be focussed on this collection, which didn't disappoint. It's important to pick up the laminate that is available which explains the background to...More
