This museum is hard to find but get a map and go for it. The house itself is worth a visit and the antiques and art work make it a fabulous visit, along with the glass of course. The owner took us around and was so interesting with lots of stories and bits of historical intrigue. He was a delightful... More

An extraordinary collection. You might expect a rather dull experience going to a museum which displays glassware from a period of 4,500 + years. However, this museum has a lot more to capture your attention. First, it is in a restored home that has been furnished with period pieces and decorated with artwork appropriate to the same periods. Secondly, the... More

We went to try and be cultured for the afternoon and weren't quite sure what to expect. The owner was our tour guide and at first he just assumed to be scruffy travellers but when he saw we were genuially interested he really warmed up. He shared personal stories about his family and his enthusiasm about glass for infectious. It... More

Very interesting lovingly restored house containing a wide variety of Glass and crystal as well as furniture and paintings. Very informative guided tour by one of the owners who originates from Rochdale. The tour gives an interesting view on European / World history

Last weekend we visited the Glass and Crystal Museum. We were guided by one of the owners, an English gentlemen. He was well informed and we felt that this is his passion. His background stories made the tour even more interesting, he also tried to make the tour more personal by showing crystals to everybody from their country of origin.... More

The restored beautiful building in which the museum is housed lends itself well to display to the many and varied exhibits. Our tour took 2 hours and the owner himself imparted so much information in an informal and friendly manner we were overwhelmed by his collection of such beautiful objects.He made the tour very enjoyable with various stories about the...

The three of us spent about an hour being guided through the museum by an English speaking guide. He gave us good and detailed background about all the exhibits and we were lucky that we were on our own for the tour (which we had to wait just 10 minutes for). It is a bit difficult to locate but we... More

Wonderful experience being shown around by one of the owners. Full of information and anecdotes , made us feel privileged. Also wonderful surprise to find that this beautifully restored ancient house was fully wheelchair accessible with ramp (but you need to ask) and a lift. Only one tiny quibble is that as far as I could see the website and... More

The story of it's creation and the items on display tell of a labour of love. Mix with a large portion of inherited artifacts, some considerable expense I'd guess and the efforts of 3 men and you get one of the best tourist attractions in Malaga.

I recently went to the Glass and Crystal Museum and saw the Pan Lusheng Exhibition. Pan Lusheng is a noted Chinese artist and in this exhibition he had about 20 beautiful porcelain vases, painted in a very modern way. I loved the colors on the porcelain pieces, which also had many different forms.
