Any lover of C R Mackintosh will appreciate this recreation of his home, with typical furniture. It's stunning. Costs £5 entry but is worth it if you like his work.

Really interesting talk and tour. Well informed guide. Beautiful interior which gave me an insight into the lives of two of the most influential creative talents in Glasgow's history.

Excellent tour of the house, excellent guides. I felt a little rushed through the house. Limited number per tour which was good as it was a tight squeeze in some rooms. V enjoyable though and well worth seeing.

Worth a visit, very nice. Only downside is photopgraphs are not allowed. No idea why not. Also be aware of steep stairs.

Before you go note - you cannot take any bags in so they need to be in a looker downstairs. You also need a ticket - even if it is open house day, and thus free, the jobs worth, grumpy man at the door insists on seeing one even if he does not take it off you. This was a... More

This building houses the actual contents of Mackintosh's own house and is stunning. The first floor living room is eye catching
