A museum experience like no other. The "museum" is in fact the private home of the three owners who have restored the fine old house and filled it with fine furniture and the glass that is their passion. Personally guided tours by the owners are highly informative and enlivened by personal anecdotes and family detail. Not to be missed.

This Museum is a lovely little gem with some very nice glass and crystal pieces on display as well as a range of paintings that have an interesting history of their own. It's in a gorgeous old home. It was 6 Euros each to enter which is a fair price when you see what they have to maintain. I found... More

If I had just popped in and walked around by myself (which you can't do anyway) I might have spent 15 -20 mins looking around. Arriving first in the morning, I had a very personal and enjoyable guided tour by a very amiable young woman, who took me round the lovely building and interesting collection, explaining about the history of...

We aren't particularly interested in glass or museums, but we visited with two boys, 14 and 11, based on the Trip Advisor reviews. The best word to describe this place is special. It's a private home, through which you are guided by one of the owners. The home itself is of significant architectural interest, and the antique furnishings and artwork... More

The guided tour is very personal and informative. This museum displays thousands of pieces and explains the history of glass and crystal. We enjoyed the visit here and would go again. The guide we had was excellent!

This beautifully restored 18th century house near the Cervantes theatre is a real labour of love and a gem Although intended to show in wonderfully stylish and period surroundings the glass objects,porcelain, furniture and paintings acquired by the three owners by inheritance and judicious purchases over 40 years, the whole is an enticing and memorable experience whatever your knowledge or...

This is actually a museum of collected antiques. The tour is always guided. Sometimes you may feel that the guide (who is the owner of the place) talks a little bit too much. I only recommend you to visit this place if you are staying in Malaga for more than 3-4 days, otherwise you may find other more interesting places... More

excellent if quirky collection, well presented and not just glass! The history of UK glassware was very comprehensive.

A glass museum as the number 1 attraction in Malaga? Even outshining the Picasso museum? I was semi-skeptical but it was close to where I was staying and I do like glass blowing so I decided to give it a try. The museum has a very personal touch as it is an old converted home, and it is still owned... More

For those who wish to see a fantastic collection of glass housed in an 18th century house this is a must museum. Our guide was the actual owner who has some fascinating stories of where he obtained the objects. Although away from the centre it is well worth the walk.
