A fine collection of glass, art and furniture in a beautifully restored house. The owners are rightfully proud of their achievements and are trying to reinvigorate the crafts in the area.

Lived in Andalucia nearly 10 years and only just found this gem. A fabulous collection of glass and the story of each piece brought to life by one of the owners who did our personal tour in English. A must for any trip to Malaga. You will not regret the hour and half spent here.

It was fantastic to have a guided tour by one of the owners. He was charming and well informed. He and his story was as interesting as the place itself. A good collection of glass, art and furniture in a fine restored house.

My wife and I arrived there an half hour before closing, and were duly warned by the man in the entrance that it would not be enough to see everything. He said they could do a quick mini tour just for the two of us though. Since this was our last day in Malaga and my wife was very excited... More

A glass museum would not normally be high on my list of things to do - the high TA rating tempted us along and we were not disappointed. We were lucky to be given our guided tour (in English) by the charming and passionate owner of the property. His collection of beautiful things (not just glassware) is incredible and his... More

The three owners bought this 18th century building, painstakingly restored it and filled it with more than 3000 glass artefacts, stained glass windows, paintings and items of period furniture. Our tour was conducted by one of the owners whose knowledge and enthusiasm were infectious. A Museum of Glass and Crystal would not normally be high on our priorities but be... More

This museum is hard to find but get a map and go for it. The house itself is worth a visit and the antiques and art work make it a fabulous visit, along with the glass of course. The owner took us around and was so interesting with lots of stories and bits of historical intrigue. He was a delightful... More

An extraordinary collection. You might expect a rather dull experience going to a museum which displays glassware from a period of 4,500 + years. However, this museum has a lot more to capture your attention. First, it is in a restored home that has been furnished with period pieces and decorated with artwork appropriate to the same periods. Secondly, the... More
