Reviewed 3 June 2014

What a wonderful home! Full of beautiful furniture and artefacts, a complete showpiece for Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonalds talents! Would fit into a contemporary home( mine would be ideal!) fell in love with the amazing talent of both of them all over again. The rooms have been relocated from original site beautifully. The tour guide was very informative and helpful, answering so many questions. A super MUST for any C R M fan!

Although not built by McIntosh himself it is constructed from his drawings and is testament to this man's greatness. It is also deserving of very high praise to the modern builders and to the Glasgow City Council who, I believe, commissioned it..

Had a little trouble finding the Mackintosh House on the University of Glasgow campus. It's in a building that says "Library" at the top, if that helps. We checked in a little early for a tour (tour every 30 minutes) and got our free passes, then walked around the art gallery on the same floor as the entrance. We took the tour with one other couple on a Friday afternoon. Our guide was very professional and was able to answer any question we had about history/art/architecture. It was so interesting to tour this replica of Mackintosh's house with the original furniture. His wife's artwork was so unique, and even inspired Klimt! Even if you are not familiar with Mackintosh, this is a great tour to take and will familiarize you with one of Glasgow's most famous past residents.

I had thought this was a mock-up of the Mackintosh's residence, I had no idea they had moved all the fixtures and fittings from the original house which was sited close by and re-installed them in an exact replica with furniture. Accessed through the Huntarian museum you join a tour that runs every half hour. The atmosphere of the house is great and the tour guide gives you just enough info. Totally worthwhile.

An excellent opportunity to learn more about Charles Renee Mackintosh and his work. The guides are very informative and happy to answer questions. The designs on display are beautiful and also feature work by his wife, whom was equally talented.
