To see the collaborative work of CRM and his wife Margaret Macdonald was a long-held dream and I am thrilled to have finally made the trip to Glasgow. The short tour to see part of the Mackintosh house was highly informative and very enjoyable. Take...More

Mackintosh had a huge influence on Glasgow and the wider Art Deco movement and his Glasgow "home" is therefore a must for anyone interested in the genre - well worth the entrance fee!

Really enjoyed our visit, took a morning tour and the guide was excellent, pointing out all the details. He, however, went a bit OTT when I accidentally touched a chair when pointing at it!

Despite this being one of our top picks for our weekend in Glasgow, we ended up visiting during our last few hours in town. Well worth the five pounds admission fee, a beautiful and cared for and well preserved lasting testimony to the couples’ genius....More

Part of the Glasgow University Hungarian museum complex, this is the house in which CRM and his wife lived. They renovated it significantly, adding many of the features that would become trade marks in their works/buildings. There are experts in each room, very enthusiastic to...More

This is a tiny museum,because it is selected rooms reconstructed of Mackintosh's home. So to be satisfied, you must have a keen interest in him or architecture. But seeing this place, you realize how ahead of his time his ideas were.

This isn't the actual house that Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife lived in. That got knocked down a while back, for unclear (to me) reasons. But it is an exact replica of it. It's a standard Glaswegian terraced house, so it's not huge. There...More

The museum is an impressive collection of Mackintosh furniture, the interior of the house coming from his original home which was demolished but the interior preserved. I certainly came out of there wanting to totally strip down the clutter of my life and have a...More

There is plenty of parking nearby as the attraction is in the university. You can park on the nearby streets where most students/faculty members park their cars - it will be empty on a Sunday. I am almost certain that tours... More
