The owner of the home gave us an enjoyable look at his glass, furniture and art collection. It was truly interesting. There is a discount for individuals over 65. We felt like we were getting a great education on glass, etc..

Yes, it is visually interesting. Yes, one of the owners explained everything there was to know about every piece of glass and furniture. Yes, the effort put into it clearly shows it is a private enterprise. Very enjoyable, however, I would not call it the #1 attraction in Malaga, where you can find historic buildings, 2 Picasso museums, a harbor,... More

Very informative tour guide! I liked how she gave us the rich, historical context of everything. Set in a private, beautifully restored 18th century house with very pretty glass objects, stained glass and artwork from various time periods throughout. Seen by guided tour only (€6) offered in English, Spanish, French and Italian. Pictures allowed without flash. A must see if... More

Visit for sure when you are in Malaga. You will have a tour by one of the owners of the casa who will explain not only the glass (extensive) on display, but also the antique furniture and paintings. This is a private home and you are treated as a special guest as you wander through the two levels with your... More

It's only glass. No. It's beautiful glass, interesting glass, historic glass, all housed in a beautiful building, where the three owners live on the top floor. An added interest is that it is all the personal collection of the owners. In our case we were shown around by one of them and his love of glass was the caviar on... More

Thoroughly recommend this tour. Only Euro 6 and the owners that give their tour gave a great insight into some of the subtle aspects of what are also world class museum pieces set in period furniture etc.

Visited this beautiful museum in early January. Renovated by 3 gentlemen, it houses their collection of crystal and glass that spans from 3,000 years ago to the present day. There are also personal family heirlooms and pieces donated by friends. We had a personal tour in English which was just wonderful. The attention to detail and the background history to... More

I loved this smaller museum and I had a very knowledgeable and fascinating visit , well worth it . Can be quite difficult to find in part of the old town but Google street view is good for this

This really is the best museum I have ever visited with the most informative and friendly tour by one of the passionate owners who lives there. The tour is around an hour and is well worth a visit; their very small admission charge of 5 euros (4 euros concession) which is a bargain.
