Fascinating place and our guide (who is one of the owners) was so knowledgeable and entertaining. Beautiful house and garden which have been restored by the owners. Lots more to see than just glass with a few surprises. Will be visiting again

the place was very interesting as it displays everything possible made with a glass and the colors of the glass displayed is really cool.

Thanks to Lonely Planet Andalusia for saying "go here, you'll thank us later". We did in late December, and we are. We got lucky, had one of the owners of the museum available to give us a tour. Part of the attraction is that the glass is part of his (very) long family line. Keep an eye out for a... More

This museum is a MUST SEE on your list when visiting Malaga. An incredible collection in a perfect surrounding with an even better commentary delivered by the owner himself.

If you are a fan of glass or even fine art, furniture & antiques all in the setting of a beautiful period Spanish home then you are in for a treat...If not a fan then you soon will be. The beauty of the exhibits (which includes the house) was enhanced by the wonderful knowledge and entertaining delivery of our guide... More

My wife and I visited on 15 January and fully endorse the positive comments given by others. I am not the greatest fan of guided tours but the one here is so personal and added so much to the visit. The guide (who is part owner) provides you with a very interesting history lesson on the collection and on the... More

The best history class I've ever taken! The tour was led by the owner/inhabitant of the 16th century house that he has lovingly restored and filled with his collection of glass! Best in a Malaga!

My friend and I knew very little about the history of glass, and I was very sceptical about the visit to this museum, but what an eyeopener it was! Our personal guide (the owner(!)) was an expert not only on the topic but also in conveying some of his knowledge to us in a humorous, fascinating and personal way. It... More

This was enjoyable. A lot of fun helped by the knowable owner of the museum and house and glass works. Well worth a visit as an interesting insight in to the family and glass over the years. There is also some amazing art on show that in my mind is more attractive than the glass. The museum again showing how... More

Our tour lasted nearly an hour and was detailed and fascinating. The informations given by the owner/founder was impressive, and his stories will stay with us forever. We look forward to returning as soon as we can.
