Mdina glass offers nothing less than masterpieces. The variety of glass wares will blow your mind. They can pretty much make anything (from wine stoppers and necklace pandants to door panes) in glass. The highlight was watching the glass blowers live. Tey smile at you and bring things as close to you as is safe so you can get a... More

This little manufacture cannot be missed. Beautiful and very nice shaped glass products. This is a truly eligible souvenir from Malta. Various colors and shapes will astonish you.

Some good glass but they spoil everything by giving a very warped and dis-honest view of their history. Said obtained Mdina Glass from Michael Harris after Dom 'the Red' Mintoff kicked him out when Mdina Glass was up and successfully running. Why do they choose not to mention this?

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.
