A stunning, eclectic collection presented in a private house setting, explained by a hugely knowledgeable guide with a personal history and passion for the objects. Best 90 minutes we have spent in a museum for a long time.

This is the private collection of glass, art and furniture in a restored house (mansion). Very impressive. It was 6 Euros per person and you get guided tour which is offered in several languages. When you go in you join your language tour at whatever point it is at then leave when you hit that point again so there is... More

I found the Museum to be most interesting, both in terms of the collections and the setting. It is situated close to the city centre in a beautifully renovated 18th century patricier's house. The glass and crystal collections are complemented by magnificent furniture and paintings of the same era. Each visitor will receive personal guidance to the artifacts, and there... More

We were expecting a guided historical overview with exhibitions of the glass art of Spain, but instead had a knowledgeable, young, enthusiastic Spanish guide discussing and demonstrating the classical and religious glass art of England and Scotland! Very disappointing, given that most glass art shops in my hometown have better exhibits than I saw at this 'museum'.

We sought out this museum with high hopes, having enjoyed visits to glass museums elsewhere - especially the entrancing Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington. This was a very different experience... Rather than a celebration of the medium of glass and the creativity of glass artists, this is more a historical collection assembled by a single enthusiast, with great emphasis... More

We didn't know quite what to expect. My interest in things glass is limited; my partner's a bit more knowledgable on the subject. We thoroughly enjoyed a personal tour around a wonderfully restored old house, guided by one of the owners, an Englishman whose knowledge and enthusiasm on the subject could not fail to enthrall. But it's not just glass.... More

My question is: why was yellow a difficult colour to produce in early glass production. You are only permitted to tour the museum together with a guide.

We found this place thanks to the tourist information office in plaza de la merina. What a great surprise, from the building itself including the great collection and the guided tour inside
