The guided tour in English is quite intense and not always intelligible, but that is made up for through sheer enthusiasm and dedication to prized and loved personal possessions. Set aside at least 2 hours and enjoy the visual feast of beautiful pieces.

I went along with my partner expecting to be rather bored looking at lots of bits of Glass. Wrong! We had a detailed guided tour of a stunning house, within which is a wonderful collection of furniture stained glass (some by Morris/Burne-Jones) and glassware from a period of 2000 years plus. Our guide was one of the three owners, a... More

housed in a beautifully restored 18th century house, this huge collection of glass and crystal is arranged by historical period, with furniture, paintings etc in keeping with the period - and the guided tour is excellent

I really hate to offer this review because this museum is so special I'm afraid it will become so popular I won't be able to get back in! I say this because it it actually the home of three gentleman. They have have pooled their personal possessions and have them available to be seen in for small private groups. The... More

This museum has a very small collection of ancient glass, which is what we like, but it is interesting, and has lots of beautiful pieces.

We loved the tour of this lovely little museum. One of the owners was our guide and we learned from him about glass making, the history (ancient and modern), as well as hearing about many of the portraits displayed. All in all, a great way to spend a couple of hours.

Don't be put off by the glass & crystal title, there is so much more to see here, the furniture, family and glass history. It was so good I would have paid to go round again. Thanks to Jim Phillips (our English guide) for an excellent tour, full of anecdotes - you certainly know your subject. This place is a... More

This is not a museum but a large mansion and it is not all about glass but also a lot about the three owners and their ancestors (of whom there are pictures hanging on several walls) and that all together makes it a visit worthwile. What is relly extra good is that the tour is continuous, so no matter what... More
