“House for an Art Lover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

Ambience of a recent age, but decidedly 'modern.' A house worth a visit. Beautiful clean lines and spaces. Purpose built to exhibit art and to showcase the architect's wife's amazing art deco designs.

“Unmissable for Mackintosh fans.”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
