We visited this little gem 18 months ago and enjoyed it so much that we took seven of our friends with us when we were visiting the area recently. It truly is a wonderful collection, with something for everyone. Seeing such beautiful items in such lovely surroundings (i.e. a lovely Spanish house) and having a guide with such passion is... More

The house is a fantastic example of a beautiful home in the backstreets of Malaga. The owner gave the tour of his home and his private collection of crystal with such passion and enthusiasm one could not help but be enthralled in his enthusiasm.

Superb guided tour by a very knowledgeable gentleman. Lots of lovely shiny things. The stained glass windows were fantastic.

This is far more than a museum of glass and crystal. The collection is in a private house and our guide was one of the owners so he could tell us so much more than we expected. The house has been beautifully restored with period furnishings and no attention to detail has been spared. This is well worth a visit.

We did this tour and it was very good & different from the usual stuff. You got to learn about the history of glass and it's very quaint and personalized. However, I'm not sure how this got to be #1 on the Trip Advisor's list -- as we also went on the castle tour which to me, would be primary... More

The museum was just behind my apartment. I thought it might be a nice bit of culture for half an hour but I was completely entranced by the place, the contents, the explanations and the wonderful, friendly welcome. I guess I was in for about 2 hours. There was a particular stained glass window I wished to learn more about... More

This museum is in the owner's residence. He and his partners have a nice collection of stained glass windows nicely displayed as well as a collection of other glass objects. The owner, a very personable U.K. ex-pat loves his collection and guides you through the exhibition while telling you about the objects in the collection.

Went to this amazing glass museum I found out about on TripAdvisor. Turns out 3 lifelong friends--2 Brits and a Spaniard--who all collected antique and contemporary glass pieces, bought a villa together to house their collections. The 3 owners now give tours and it was awesome. Ian was our guide, and what was especially meaningful was that this was his... More

Oh so glad we managed to find this magnificent building. Or rather one of the owners found us, thankfully! As we were at the back door of the church not the front. It truly should not be missed, a private tour in a beautiful setting and the most beautiful pieces of glass, furniture and painting. Excellent for wheelchair users too

Enjoyed a guided tour of a private collection of stained glass, glass and crystal objects, furniture and paintings in a restored Malaga home. Tour of 1 hour stretched into 2 as we were given an insight into the world of glass with humour and enthusiasm.
