This shop has so many beautiful pieces, it is almost like an art gallery. They are willing to ship pieces worldwide to avoid breakages in your luggage. Very pretty!

After strolling in Mdina pay a visit to Mdina Glass. They have so many nice works. If you choose something bulky they ship to your country. Be carefull with your backpacks because it is written that when you break something it is considered as sold. Thanks God I did not break anything huh.I have found such a lovely seahorse which...

I don't buy a lot of souvenirs while traveling, but I did want to take home some Malta glass. It's colorful and unique, and even if you don't buy anything, it's worth stepping inside just to see the beautiful displays. We didn't see the glass blowers, unfortunately - we got there just before closing. But, I did get some interesting... More

A glass factory with a huge showroom and glass blowing area. Agree with other that there are no Pushy salespeople and Staff are very helpful and knowledge about their product. You can visit the glass blowers at work and then see the result of their work. The glass for sale was in every colour and size imaginable and lots of... More

This place we went to was very good and it's what they are known for making glass things. Got to see it up close and personal being made from scratch. Very impressive and value for money. Well worth a visit when visiting Malta.

Fascinating to watch the glass blowing so close up, while the staff were doing their jobs as glass blowers. And of course bought some lovely items in their shop.

A lovely little place: watching the glass workers was a real pleasure, and the range of glass products is an excellent one, including some quite unusual. Well worth a detour.

We've been here twice now and still loved browsing around all the glass. The first time we went here was in the storms of 2012 when we hid from the rain! Then, it was early September and they had the Christmas decorations out, which were just beautiful; glass angels and baubles galore. It was difficult to choose! Apart from that,... More

It was a great place to visit. There was a lot of variety in the glass wear. It was also nice to see the experts making glass in their work shop.
