This museum was at the top of our list. We took a long walk through the old town to get there only to find a sign saying it was closed from August 1 till some time in September. . Operators of this museum should have put something on the internet to indicate a closure so that people would not waste... More

What an unexpected treat to find this small and very affordable musuem. The owners have opened their home and their collection and shared their stories about these articles. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It may not be for everyone, but if you are interested in history and glass, this place is unique. They are very down to earth and love to... More

The Museum is located out of the way so you will need a map or follow the tourist indications. You can walk from the Alcazaba although we went there first thing in the morning in a taxi.This is not necessarily a typical spanish attraction and could be located anywhere in Europe but it would be a worthwhile visit in any...

We were not expecting too much from the outside but it proved to be one of the best visits of the holiday. The guided tour by the owner was fascinating. The place is a treasure trove of interesting glassware and beautiful furniture. One note of caution however...this is not ideal for young or boisterous children as much of the glass... More

Well worth a visit. A private collection guided by the collector/enthusiast. His vast knowledge and stories on the subject with his enthusiasm for his glass finds around the world make it even more interesting. Not on the beaten track but in a beautifully restored traditional Málaga house yet still central. Possibly not of interest to most children.

wow. what a place. Tucked away in the back streets of the artisan quarters in a beautifully restored town residence. Takes a bit of finding. If you are not into glass, then the building itself is worth seeing. The museum is personally run by the owner who has had a passion for glass and crystal from early on, and the... More

We were very impressed with this museum -- it really was the best five €5 we spent in our whole holiday. The guided tour was led by one of the owners who shared his knowledge of the collection and his family history with wit and passion. I will never look at glass the same again. I hope his plan to...

What a wonderful place to visit. A guided tour by the owner of this absolutely superb collection of stained glass, portraits, furniture and glass objects. He was so passionate about his collection, kept all of us totally mesmerised for over an hour by his knowledge of the pieces on display. For such a nominal entrance fee we cannot understand how...

This may not be an obvious 'tourist attraction' but it is one of the joys of any visit to MALAGA, combining beauty, charm, elegance and history in ways that you could not imagine! Prepare to spend two hours of tranquil enjoyment.
