Initially it was difficult to find but it was good once I had arrived. Unfortunately I was unable to visit Mackintosh House due to it closing, and I was not informed of this when I arrived at the gallery. Overall good experience though.

Small free galley makes a nice add on if going anyway to see the ticketed Macintosh house or the university. If you are a fan of whistler then you will appreciate the place more.

The Mackintosh House was splendid. A carefully authentic reconstruction of the Mackintosh couple's West End flat. What light airy spaces they created. Some of the design aspects still seem avant-gard. They were way ahead of their time. Not sure about having a reconstruction of Northampton's...More

Sorry I don't know the answer. I was only in Glasgow 2 days last month on a short break. I do not live there and so do not keep up to date on what's on.

Not sure since we didn't actually go to the show but it should be worth it as Scottish comics are great eg the Beano and the Dandy,
