  • This building was constructed under the project of the great Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Now it is the Centre of Scottish design and architecture. There are also materials on the Macintosh. The building has a high tower offering amazing views of the Centre of Glasgow.

  • If I had to arrange a second trip to Glasgow (as I am doing) would leave the city walking tour right here: you can see the city from above! Definitely worth a leap!

  • Great off beat gallery. Interesting exhibits, regularly changed out. Make sure you go to the roof for the view. 
  • An extremely enjoyable time. A great little exhibition of sci-fi architecture through the ages. Some fabulous Mackintosh bits and pieces to buy in the shop as well.
  • If you have never been in the Lighthouse you should go for a look. the original building was designed by Rene Macintosh and the conversion to the new interior and layout is sympathetic to the original design. you should make sure to go to the viewing platform and look across the Glasgow roofs and see the roof detail up close
  • Fantastic exhibitions and a beautiful building. Lovely views over Glasgow, even in a cloudy day. A must for any architect or anyone interested in buildings and the history and future of design and architecture.
  • Really beautiful galleries to exhibit. I especially loved the first one where you can see some of the most beautiful buildings around the world. If you are into architectual design this is a must see and it is free !
  • Interesting free museum on architecture and design with a strong focus on the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. There is a beautiful view of the city from the top of the building when the weather is nice!
