It won't take too long to go around the house, but if you're into design you just have to see it and the original pieces of Mackintosh. Stunning pieces that look fresh 100 years on.
Well worth a visit to understand the significance of the Macintosh family to Glasgow, well preserved and only a small entry fee. You get to walk around the different rooms and there’s a guide on each floor to answer any questions.
Gave a good insight into the life and works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Staff were very knowledgeable when asked.
Great example of Rennie Mackintosh/Margaret MacDonald Mackintosh interiors. Apparently, Mackintosh House is closed for renovations. January 2018.
It's an ok house/museum, but you'd get the same experience looking at photos. It's not even Mackintosh's house, that was demolished, this is a 1960s built replica. Don't even think about breathing near the furniture, the rather high strung museum staff person will have a nervous meltdown. Not great patron hospitality on the whole. Worth a miss if you're on the fence about it, save your fiver and Google some photos.
Disappointed I did not get to see this, it says on sign outside it closes at 5pm but curator said 4 15pm , I did check on the website and it had recently changed. 1) Surely they can change the sign 2) It's the height of the tourist season, the schools are closed, how will you attract visitors with such a draconian attitude
This was the highlight of my trip to Glasgow. Even though it was small, it was so fascinating
