I went there yesterday on a wonderful "lids open" day when people could come along and play the 3 pianos that are in the building. I was blown away by the simple beauty of the building - very Hill House. I can never get over how this hugely talented man came to die in poverty. It is a reminder to... 更多
Mackintosh Queen's Cross is one of Glasgow's hidden architectural gems, and being the only church in the world designed by the great Scottish Architect, designer and artist, it is well and truly worth the visit.
From the collection receptacles scattered about, to the selection of Mackintosh "tracts" available in the back of the church, to the eager volunteer waiting to proselytize to the visitor on the beauty of the (mostly) unaltered interior, this church-- now the headquarters of the Mackintosh society-- has made a complete transition to the worship of a sect of les arts... 更多
An amazing example of the work of Charles Rennie Macintosh. The building is now owned by the CRM society who look after its upkeep. Good to see inside the church I was christened in many years ago!
We had been to the House for an Art Lover, but hadn’t seen enough of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s work, so it was off to the Queen’s Cross Church.

The stained glass windows are fine features, the Blue heart probably an iconic feature. The change of light during our visit emphasised... 更多

Part of a CRM(Charles Rennie McIntosh weekend) experience. 2 visits, one private one part of the thour. On both occasions very helpful staff( one volunteer lady called Joan) even walked part of the way home and gave us directions to our hotel!!). The architecture in the church was excellent as wa the tea/coffee and biscuits in the adjoining church hall... 更多
Excellent example of Mackintosh. Sparse but stunning and with a guitar recital ongoing when we visited it was quite breathtaking. Access to all areas lets you get a sense of how it felt to be a member of the congregation when it was a functioning place of worship.
