  • If you have even the slightest interest in Charles Mackintosh or architecture or you just want to see a different view of Glasgow then this is the place for you. There is a viewing platform that allows access for all which unfortunately was closed the day we went so we climbed Mackintosh Tower. The view is amazing and you can spot so many important building from the top. Totally free as well
  • Really tough place to visit with pram and must be with wheelchair too. Only one lift, escalator wasn't working on our visit and you can't get up the old tower any other way than by walking up stairs. Despite that it's a great place with interesting exhibitions and amazing views. Would have been 5 stars if accessibility was better.
  • One of the coolest places in Glasgow. Do not missing going up the tower, such an amazing view of Glasgow!. There is an elevator you can go up that takes you to a glass walled room with another interesting view.
  • We went here,especially to see a particular exhibition. Only criticism id say is,What a Place to try and find?!! Anyway,we were right up at the top-all 134 steps!! Oh My Good God!! But it was worth it! What a SPECTACULAR view right across the whole of Glasgow!! WOW!!
  • Great views from the top, if you are willing to climb the stairs. Interesting exhibits in the galleries which are worth a wander around too.
