This is a guided tour by the owner of his historical glass and art collection. You'll need to be interested in beautiful objects and their history to enjoy it, as it is subtle and educative. There are some amazing pieces and fascinating stories behind them.

A hidden gem in the heart of Malaga. A beautifully restored old Spanish house filled with magic. We were taken around by one of the founders of the museum who was English, and obviously passionate about his collection.

I only went because trip advisor rated this so highly - I would not normally look to go to a glass museum out of choice. But it was truly fascinating. We were taken around by an elderly British academic (all visits are accompanied) who was one of the co-owners of the property. The owners had restored the house over a... More

Only in Malaga for a day and glad I stopped by this wonderful little museum. Only 5 euros for admission with a personally escorted tour in 3 languages including English. Our group was led by a British gentleman who co-owns the collectables and supplies the history of the pieces. Not just glass and crystal; stained glass windows, furniture, paintings, and... More

This was a truly wonderful experience. The owners take personal pride in showing you around this wonderful display all put into context with the associated art and period furniture set in this lovely house. The passion was so evident and his knowledge so extensive but the way it was delivered was so inspiring too. Please take some time out and... More
