Small but wonderful place to see the work of Margaret MacDonald and MacIntosh. So much of the interiors was work done by Margaret. Yes replica house but many original furnishings. Very helpful and informative docents.

Altho the house is a reconstruction, all the interiors/furnishings are authentic. Visiting the house is a fabulous entry into the world of Macintosh. A visit to the Willow Tea Room is another must while you are in Glasgow.

A reconstruction of the original house, fitted out with CRM designs and furntiture. There were Swedes nearby so I warned the curator that they might be spies from IKEA.
