    Don’t miss this place - fantastic !
    What a wonderful place ! The most amazing collection of all types of glass - and then a tour of the house with fantastic furniture paintings and antiques. We were guided through the exhibition I initially by the owner and then through the house by a younger gentleman . Both were passionate about the exhibition and this really brought alive. A highlight of Malaga .

    Beautiful glass in a beautiful building
    A lovely little museum containing an exquisite collection of glass in a beautiful building. All visits are by a guided tour. We joined a little way in, but when the tour ended, our guide took us back so we could enjoy the beginning which we had missed. Our knowledgeable guide was excellent, and obviously very enthusiastic. And the highlight was seeing a Orrefors vase which I have in my own very small collection.

    Great experience, highly recommended
    Amazing guided tour. Never learned so much about glass and crystal before, and a bit about furniture and paintings as well. The guide has extensive knowledge about the subject, and was able to answer all my questions. Highly recommend!

    Extraordinary museum not to be missed!
    This privately owned museum in an old patrician house, receives no subsidies whatsoever. It is purely dedicated to wonderful glass objects some inherited, gifted or carefully selected by the owner. The beautiful house has also lovely antiques and porcelain. If you are lucky enough to have the owner as your guide, you will be astonished and charmed by his knowledge and enthusiasm. It is by far my favorite museum in Malaga which I have now visited twice and will return to with great pleasure, as each time I learn so much. Highly recommended

    Fantastisk upplevelse, rekommenderas starkt!
    A lovely little museum containing an exquisite collection of glass in a beautiful building. Everyone gets a guided tour and the wonderful Ricardo was our guide. We went a bit in, but when the tour ended he took us back so we could enjoy the beginning that we had missed. Ricardo was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. A highlight was seeing glass from Ireland where my sister lives and Swedish glass from Orrefors where I live. Thank you Ricardo for a memorable experience.

    Excellent museum very much up with the better-known places
    Excellent wide-ranging glass collection in a fine building. Very good guide (must go with guide but that's straightforward and not extra cost). Our best museum visit on this trip to Malaga.

    A true gem!
    This is an absolute must - a true gem not only for lovers for glass and historical artifacts, but for all who enjoy true craftmanship and beauty galore. Very dedicated and knowledgeable guides. In walking distance from the centre of Malaga.

    Super place don’t miss it
    Well I was fortunate I got an almost one on one with a fantastic young intern who was really interested in conveying as much knowledge as he could. I would thoroughly recommend this spot. It’s delightful and the house is truly wonderful.

    A gem of a museum
    The most wonderful jewel of a museum. We had the pleasure of getting a tour from the owner and collector himself. He was incredible, so knowledgeable, friendly and fascinating - great stories about his collecting, family and friends over the years. Best €7 spent. Thank you again!

    First glass experience
    Very interesting place, visitors are given an intimate guided tour through the collection. The guide had exceptional knowledge and tailored the tour to our background in a clever way. The pieces are beautiful and varied, and there were even some opportunities to touch a few. I haven't seen anything like it before. Highly recommend for something arty and a bit different.

We visited the museum as it was really close to where we were staying and it was much cheaper than most of the other museums! To our surprise, it was our most enjoyable museum experience, with a personal tour guide who not only had a deep knowledge of the exhibits but was also really engaging and got us thinking about all the different elements to glass making. The building itself is beautiful, and there are many items to see, not just glass!

***** Re-opening 1st September 2021 *****

Every visit to Malaga city deserves a visit to this gorgeous museum. And now it is re-opening with new exhibits to see.

There are often temporary exhibitions within the museum, so there is always something different each time we go. But this time there is even more!

One thing in particular which will, I think, appeal to English-speaking visitors is the "Alice in Wonderland" stained glass windows, just gorgeous.

It is not like a museum, more like visiting a private house, but a beautiful private house with exceptional furnishing and ornaments.

You will just LOVE it!

This private museum is a gem. It has examples of glass and porcelain from two and a half thousand years ago to 2020. Everything was introduced with extensive knowledge and affection by one of the men responsible for a large part of the collection.
We spent about 90 minutes on a small private tour and saw some very beautiful and interesting artifacts.
This museum is set in a private house and receives no public funding. The owners can trace their ancestors back through British, Spanish and Italian nobility making for a highly entertaining story backed up by beautiful portraits of said ancestors.
We have been meaning to go for a long time and we are so pleased we finally made it.

We visited this wonderful museum on our third day in Malaga. What a beautiful and interesting museum, housed in an old renovated building its packed full of fantastic glass and crystal items, including some amazing strained glass windows. It is cheap to get in and the admission price includes a guided tour. We were shown around by Ricardo, who's knowledge of the building and all the artifacts is outstanding. Not a great fan of very large museums this one takes around 1 -1.5 hrs at a very leisurely pace. I would highly recommend you visit its a real joy.

We visited this museum and find it an enjoyable and a valuable experience. The art exposed in this beautiful mansion is exquisit!! But what really makes a HUGE difference are the guides. We were guided by Mayva. Mayva was not only very knowledgeable of the pieces of art and its history but she made us reflect snd understand how they represent the way the society was influenced by the cultural trends and the historic events. She made us think, laugh and appreciate the value of the museum collection. Mayva you are a Rock Star!!!THANKS!!

The visit started well with a thoughtful and gentle enquiry as to my age so that they could offer me a senior discount! From that first moment our visit was quite exceptional. Not simply looking around a museum but having the experience of visiting a home full of beautiful objects that provide a glimpse into the lifestyle of someone with true passion for the creative arts.

We were fortunate to be given our tour in English by the owner whose fascinating background and infectious enthusiasm for his collection make him almost worthy of being described as an exhibit in his own right!

Not only was photography allowed but it was actively encouraged to help us recall what we had seen and get more information on the exhibits after we returned home. There were also some great tips on what valuable items can sometimes be found in charity shops.

Overall, an amazing place and not to be missed by anyone with even the slightest interest in art and design.

This tour was amazing, would highly recommend (and it was only 5 euros!). This was one of the highlights of my 16 night trip in Spain. This guy (who owns the entire glass collection and the house) gave me and two other people a personal tour in English of his collection, and his passion for glass came through and made the tour better. Many of the portraits on the wall are of his family which was cool. The tour was about 80 minutes in total.

I had read excellent reviews and was really looking forward to our visit but I was incredibly disappointed. The “guide” leasing our tour knew almost nothing about the glass or the history of the wonderful house. We passed another group being guided by the owner and would have loved to have joined them. We cut our visit short because the girl’s lack of knowledge and/or skill was ruining it for us. We’ll try again next t8me we visit Malaga and only join the tour if it’s led by the owner. Such a shame.

The house, with it's collection of glass & crystal objects, is a must for anyone visiting Malaga. The tour was well presented and not too long at about 80 minutes, which seemed to pass quickly. Look out for the lady in red!
