An enjoyable experience in a very lovely setting - the guide was very knowledgeable. Great to visit if you hold a special interest in glass work, or if you are studying it, however it's a shame that there's no child/teenager/student discount - €5 each.

My wife and I went to this museum on June 24, when there was free entrance at 7:30 pm for a flute concert. There were five flutists, all of them music teachers, and they gave a very good concert that included classical music and popular music. The concert lasted an hour and we enjoyed it very much. We had never... More

We decided to investigate this museum with its somewhat unusual focus on glass and crystal, and we discovered that it is so much more than a run-of-the-mill museum. This is the personal collection of a delightful, slightly eccentric, enthusiast for glass, art with purpose, history, stories, the human experience, and life. He gave us a tour of the collection, and... More

What a lovely experience. We have visited Malaga many times, but have never been to this Gem. The Museum is situated within a converted historic house. We were shown around by Ian, one of the owners, and he shared his great depth of knowledge with us as he led us through the Museum. Leading us through each room containing wonderful... More

The house, the furniture, the glass and the tour guide (one of the owners) make this one of the unmissable attractions in Malaga. Go!

While this private collection of glass and crystal is amazing, the setting and historical presentation make the experience ever so special. The setting in this beautiful private home takes you back centuries.

We and downloaded Trip Advisor for Malaga and were eager to find this museum after reading others comments. We were happy that we were directed using a GPS on our Iphone. We were just in time for a tour and were part of small group lead by one of the owners. Don't miss this when in Malaga. It was very... More

We loved the glassware and our tour was given by the owner. He added a lot of personal information. It was beautiful. We had a little trouble finding it.

This museum does not enjoy the moment of the promotion it deserves! The Carmen Thyssen Museum, for example, which has only opened recently is in all tourist guides in 2011 while it is much more interesting and it is not there, although it is already open for a year and a half. It contains beautiful furniture, high-quality windows and a... More
