Have been here twice, once on a general visit and once to see a specific exhibition, both visits were excellent. There is a guide who is very knowledgeable and some of the glass is just incredible. The museum has been extended since my last visit and I am can´t wait to go again.

One of the most interesting museum ever. It is a private palace and you can get a guided tour by the owner of the house who is an art collector and glass expert. The beautiful palace is full of old glassware made all over the Europe. Interesting paintings, furniture, carpet made in real fabrica de tapices, Pleyel grand piano... All... More

We found this by looking on TripAdvisor. Other people had rated it very highly and I can well understand why. We were met at the door by the owner (and rudely I do not remember his name) who was one of the most interesting and informative men I have had the pleasure to meet. He took great pride in showing...

Don't miss it. Very interesting guides/owners. Who knew glass was so fascinating . Bit hard to find but persevere. Beautiful old Spanish house full of other beautiful period furniture and artefacts. Would go again! And well worth the entrance fee which I can't remember paying as it was very reasonable.

Very cute and "personal" museum with an amazing collection of glass objects from all over the world including an important number stained glass. Fantastic guide who speaks several languages. A real pearl in the old part of town!

Being a glass lover I wanted to visit this museum anyway, but I couldn't have expected what was awaiting me. Ten minutes walk outside the centre and you’re in Barrio Alto, one of the most historic areas of Malaga known for being a centre of artisan produce in centuries gone by. It’s no coincidence that owner and historian Gonzalo Fernandez-Prieto... More

One of the owners of the collection conducted the tour of this old Italian merchant's house - which has been lovingly restored and houses an amazing collection of glass. Learned a lot about the history of glass.

I have an interest in glass, but those that do not, but have an appreciation of history will love this museum. Apart from the glass and stained glass windows, there are pieces of furniture, paintings and some ceramics. The house has been beautifully restored and as it is privately owned it is as though you are being shown around someone's... More
