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

I found the Museum quite difficult to find with no phone or internet connection but I had a general idea of the location and was helped by some staff members in hotels who spoke some English. I didn't mind walking around in search of the museum as it allowed me to explore Malaga even more. Even though I had no... More

An enjoyable experience in a very lovely setting - the guide was very knowledgeable. Great to visit if you hold a special interest in glass work, or if you are studying it, however it's a shame that there's no child/teenager/student discount - €5 each.

We arrived after reading the reviews. The gentleman that showed us round was so attentive and really wanted us to enjoy the visit. He tailored the visit to us, how special. The glass on show was so varied but more than that is the home your allowed into, beautiful and peaceful.

My wife and I went to this museum on June 24, when there was free entrance at 7:30 pm for a flute concert. There were five flutists, all of them music teachers, and they gave a very good concert that included classical music and popular music. The concert lasted an hour and we enjoyed it very much. We had never... More

We decided to investigate this museum with its somewhat unusual focus on glass and crystal, and we discovered that it is so much more than a run-of-the-mill museum. This is the personal collection of a delightful, slightly eccentric, enthusiast for glass, art with purpose, history, stories, the human experience, and life. He gave us a tour of the collection, and... More

What a lovely experience. We have visited Malaga many times, but have never been to this Gem. The Museum is situated within a converted historic house. We were shown around by Ian, one of the owners, and he shared his great depth of knowledge with us as he led us through the Museum. Leading us through each room containing wonderful... More
