there are 2 floors of glass in all forms, large and small, with a myriad of colours and colour mixes. Prices are reasonable for decorative glass.

Was part of a group visit. Not impressed as prices are high for what is effectively 'tourist tat' compared to other world-wide Art Glass makers, which is what they purport to be. Similar to the cheaper end of Murano Glass.

Being a fan of blown glass I had to go to the factory part of the company. Having already visited the shop located in mdina I had already seen the beauty of it. There is a huge selection to choose from with the prices being really reasonable for what normally is charged in shops. You get to see how some... More

We Went to Ta' Qali Crafts centre and were confused we didn't find Mdina Glass there..... Well, it was 25 years ago since I was in Malta last time so it was a difference. At last we found the sign to Mdina Glass. We walked for about 5 minutes from the Crafts centre and found it. It was just to... More

One could see the glass art being performed live. Amazing items to purchase. Pieces of famous artists are transformed on Mdina glass.

I was disappointed, maybe the high rate from the reviewers, maybe I wasn't in the mood for shopping, but I felt it simply like a shop, no offence for the craft side. We were there some minutes, no more as there is so much better things to do in Mdina

What a neat experience to watch glass items being made right in front of you. The men in the shop seemed unfazed by our presence and worked intently to create their beautiful works of art. The shop is extensive, however a bit expensive for my pocketbook. Beautiful and unusual peices of vibrant colors and shapes. Truly a treat for the... More
