What a unique museum it is! The owner himself gave us the tour and was very passionate about each and every of the pieces displayed. It made a whole difference than just going through it by myself. Every displayed piece has a story attached to it and the owner told us all about it. This place is just packed with... More

Fascinating, a feast for the eyes, brilliant collection, excellent guide. Not just glass and crystal but furniture, paintings, ceramics all housed in a fabulous privately owned building.

We live in Andalucia for 3 winter months, but some visiting friends wanted to see Malaga, as we had been several times we looked at Tripadvisor to find somewhere different. What a gem this museum is. We were extremely privileged to be shown the collection by the owner of the house Gonzalo Fernandez-Prieto. If the visit was unaccompanied, the context... More

The tour was conducted by the owner and it was real personal insight into his love of glass. I would recommend a... More

A one and half hour guided tour - we learnt so much about the history of glass - would have loved to have learnt more about the 3 "colleagues" who run it. A very special experience

I really loved my visit to this unique museum. Our tour guide was a lovely British gentleman who happened to be one of 3 owners of the museum. His knowledge and enthusiasm was highly contagious. Wish there were more interesting and unique museums like this. Highly highly highly recommended while in Malaga!
