  • I attended a business conference here and until that day I had no idea the building even existed! Hidden along a pedestrianised lane, it looks fairly innocuous until you actually step through the door...  more »
  • Thought we would see a great presentation of The work of Mackintosh but, like some of his furniture it was good to look at but not at all functional. The gallery devoted to him was initially visually ...  more »

  • Fantastic art and design centre. Always new exhibitions in the many galleries within, and a striking new building on the side of one of Glasgow's classic Mackintosh structures. The Mackintosh exhibition is well-curated, and the best view of Glasgow that you could ever have is available at the top of the Mackintosh Tower. Well worth adding to your itinerary, whether you're just visiting Glasgow or have lived there all your life
  • We ran into this by accident citting through an alley on the way back to our hotel. It's a nice view of the city form the 6th floor, and every floor had a small exhibit. The gift shop is nice, and has a lot of Charles Rennie Mackintosh paraphernalia. My favorite exhibit was the Best Use of Timber. It runs through May 20.
  • A short visit. Inside you will find some workshops and/or modern art. Great views.
  • Beautiful place. And beautiful setting. Was at a work event and loves the decor and especially the Highland gin and cocktail!
  • Great views from the top. Lots of interesting displays on each level. Gift shop on ground floor.
