Well worth a visit. A private collection guided by the collector/enthusiast. His vast knowledge and stories on the subject with his enthusiasm for his glass finds around the world make it even more interesting. Not on the beaten track but in a beautifully restored traditional Málaga house yet still central. Possibly not of interest to most children.

wow. what a place. Tucked away in the back streets of the artisan quarters in a beautifully restored town residence. Takes a bit of finding. If you are not into glass, then the building itself is worth seeing. The museum is personally run by the owner who has had a passion for glass and crystal from early on, and the... More

We were very impressed with this museum -- it really was the best five €5 we spent in our whole holiday. The guided tour was led by one of the owners who shared his knowledge of the collection and his family history with wit and passion. I will never look at glass the same again. I hope his plan to...

What a wonderful place to visit. A guided tour by the owner of this absolutely superb collection of stained glass, portraits, furniture and glass objects. He was so passionate about his collection, kept all of us totally mesmerised for over an hour by his knowledge of the pieces on display. For such a nominal entrance fee we cannot understand how...

This may not be an obvious 'tourist attraction' but it is one of the joys of any visit to MALAGA, combining beauty, charm, elegance and history in ways that you could not imagine! Prepare to spend two hours of tranquil enjoyment.

We had a guided tour by one of the owners/collectors. Very impressed with his knowledge and descriptive stories of the history of glass. He also explained about his family history and the family portraits. There were beautiful stained glass windows he had collected along with antique furniture. His tour was a delight, very entertaining and gave us a new insight... More

All I can say is this is one of the best museums I have ever visited. The tours are often given by the owner of the museum who is hugely interesting and amusing. The wealth of knowledge here is incredible, the house and its contents are beautiful. It is by far the best museum I have been to in years... More

We were given a tour by one of the three owners of the museum. He obviously really knew glass and was very familiar with all the different methods of glassmaking throughout the ages. The glass was set up in rooms filled with antique furniture, gorgeous chandeliers, stained glass windows and beautiful portraits (some family and some royal). We learned a... More

Happened upon this little gem whilst wandering around old town Malaga. We found the ownwer/tour guide very friendly. His knowledge and enthusiasm for all things glass and crystal is evident and his collection stunning. Despite knowing little about glass making etc our questions, were answered patiently and comprehensively. Learning about the history and methods of making glass and seeing some... More
