You get a little extra here if you are open to it. The guides love their job and with not much invitation offer you much more than a standard tour in the Mackintosh house. The other museum parts is quite the opposite.

Accessible and compact museum that can be viewed in a single morning or afternoon. Love that it's free!

We went to visit a special exhibition about skeletons. It was fascinating to see these medieval bones with the injuries and medical conditions suffered.

I find this place a bit dated but still very enjoyable, It doesn't appear to be well advertised though.

Fairly small, but an interesting collection. I would have liked to visit the attached Mackintosh House but found it to be a bit pricey on my budget - it was more expensive than admission for House For An Art Lover, which was excellent.

To move around Charles Renee Mcintosh and Margaret McDonald intimate home and furniture albeit in a reconstructed shell of what was their house somewhere else is an experience not to be missed. The exhibition of James McNeill Whistler's paintings is greatly enhanced by the presence of the artist’s materials, including brushes, etching plates, and printmaking tools. Finally the works of...

When I arrived to the museum at 4:20 pm, I learned that despite the House being open until 5 pm, visitor admissions were cut at 4:15. I know... More

It was a fantastic experience to wander around this gallery. The large number of artists being displayed was amazing. You will need a few hours to do it justice.
