The Mackintosh House, Glasgow
(4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Part of the Hunterian Art Gallery, The Mackintosh House recreates the interior of the house of Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928). The original house was completely destroyed to make room for the expanding Glasgow University. However, the University later went to great lengths to re-create the house using modern materials. The house features original woodwork from Mackintosh’s home as well as carefully reassembled interiors, which exemplify Macintosh’s austere style. To visit, you must take a guided tour available every thirty minutes.
