Knowing that the Mackintosh building had been seriously damaged in a fire and was closed for renovation, but still very interested in his work, we were not sure what this 45 minute tour might accomplish. However, it was great value. First, the introductory room was...More
This was an excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgable sorry I can't remember her name but it was the 11am tour today. This tour is well worth doing looking forward to coming back when the Mackintosh building is open

The Mackintosh House, which is at the University of Glasgow in the Hunterian Museum has a great display. It showcases his architectural design that was used to create his former home. It includes the furniture he designed and collaborated with his wife Margaret to create for their home. She was credited by Mackintosh to be half if not three-quarters influnence on his artwork. It also includes the artwork his wife Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh created. It is a re-creation since the original house has to be torn down because it was built above unstable old mine shafts. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum has the Willow Tearooms artwork and furniture on display that is an iconic Mackintosh must see. There is also the Hill House outside of Glasgow in Helensburgh that Macintosh and his wife collaborated on.
