Waited years to visit, made the effort to find the museum ( off the beaten track) only to be refused entry as there were too many ( non paying) schoolchildren in the place, simply ridiculous and an insult to potential paying customers. They weren't polite about it either and didn't seem bothered to disappoint people. Won't bother again.

What a wonderful and interesting tour with the lovely British owner who lives above the museum. We had a private tour and learned so much about glass, architecture and thoroughly enjoyed his company. Thank you for an enlightening day!

The Museum of Glass and Crystal in Malaga is an amazing private collection of some of the most beautiful and artistic pieces you will see anywhere in the world. We were greeted by the owner who gave us a private narrated tour and descriptions of the pieces, in English! We could ask as many questions as we could come up... More

This is an absolute gem in Malaga's cultural resurgence. Even if you think you are not interested in glass - please, please don't let that put you off. All visits are by guided tour, and for an incredibly modest entrance fee we spent a good hour in the wonderful company of Professor Ian Phillips, co-founder along with Gonzalo Fernandez-Prieto and...

We had a fabulous couple of hours being taken through this fascinating collection & beautiful building by a wonderful gentleman who had himself collected much of the glass over the years. He spoke with insight & a wide breadth of knowledge about the history of glass making right up the the present. There were examples from many eras & factories... More

So disappointed. The best part of the stained glass is English. Not what we came to Spain for. Really lovely girl showed us round - Isabella.

Gonzalo Fernandez-Prieto your host for this tour takes you around his private home and shows and explains his private collection of furniture, paintings, and his amazing collection of glass and crystal of over 3000 pieces. He is very personable and friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about glass. He has pieces in his collection which would rival that of any museum in... More
