“Unmissable for Mackintosh fans.”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Full of original furniture from Mackintosh's own house, this reconstruction is very evocative. The room guides are very helpful and informative. The beauty and craftsmanship of the contents take your breath away - what a shame Mackintosh didn't receive the recognition he deserved in his own lifetime.

“Inspirational”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Loved visiting the Mackintosh House and would recommend it to anyone who is inspired by CR. I understand that it has now closed for a while for refurbishment (June 2012) but make a note to visit when it re-opens.

“How can you not go”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Glasgow is Mackintosh - must see place. To boot, the guards played a few jokes on us...all in good humor.

“living with art”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Don't confuse this with a store called Mackintosh house, though they sell great stuff. Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret's house was reassembled in the University of Glascow. The rooms and furnishings are imbued (yes, imbued) with an organic biomorphic aesthetic. I didn't want to leave. They won't allow photograohy, in fact they will stalk you if they see a camera.
