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

If you like the old fashioned glass bead necklaces, bracelets and earrings they have on sale at the shop, then buy them when you're there. You can't find them anywhere else: not in the tourist shops and not online. I'm so glad I bought a necklace and a pair of earrings. Now I sort of wish I had more to... More

We found it on the internet, I had been before about 18 years ago but could not remember where it was. It has now grown into quite a setup with around 12 different craft stores in the same location with two points of entry from the road, one to the craft market or one next to it into Mdina Glass....

Have been coming here for years and always seem to find a stunning piece of glass to return home with and this visit was no exception. Even better many of the local tourist guides have a voucher for 10% off.
