The Hunterian Art Gallery wasn’t that exciting but it is from here you join the tour of the reconstructed Mackintosh House. It includes the reassembled principal interiors of the house occupied by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret Macdonald from 1906 to 1914. These rooms are considered outstanding works of art in their own right and contain their original... More

The Mackintosh house is an art nouveau gem and a must see when you visit Glasgow. They have reconstructed their house exactly and fitted it with furniture and the fittings from the original. To wander through the house and look at these is like stepping into a more relaxed and civilised time. The guides are fantastic and full of knowledge... More

Visited here many years ago and was thrilled with the entire experience. Have always loved Mackintosh. I even have an approved reproduction Willow Chair in my Contemporary home in the USA

By visiting this house you realise that Mackintosh was ahead of his time by painting oak black and changing architrave. Ask the people looking after the house questions and they are only too happy to provide further information

The reassembled interior of the Mackintosh House is connected to the Hunterian Art Museum on the campus of Glasgow University. If you are into art nouveau, it is a must see.

Visiting this complete replica of Mackintosh's house was a highlight of my year. To see this home at Charles RM intended is such a pleasure. But the best part was our tour guides who so utterly brought it all to life with their extensive knowledge and expert delivery. They love Mackintosh as much as most of the visitors and take... More

My son and I were left speechless in awe after viewing the recreated Mackintosh House as it was perfect in every way, my son is now a fan after seeing the beautiful interiors in all their glory. Small but well worth a visit and a testimony to the enduring timeless beauty of the Mackintosh Style.
