It's a private house, you have to book a tour at specified hours. The guide was funny, spent a lot of time explaining every piece, so it took an hour to see the entire museum.

I was the only tourist served in that tour. Lucky me! Guide is intern but really nice and sweet. I probably asked too many questions and he was nice to answer all of them. It is truly engaging of hearing all those stories and backgrounds behind the amazing collections. I will definitely revisit during the museum season

Alhough it says here it should be open, a sign on the door says they are closed the whole month of August 2016. No reason geven. An update would have saved the trip.

I wouldn't say that I'm a huge crystal or glass expert however the house to which this collection is housed is worth the visit alone. The tour took about an hour as we were guided around the property with a vast array of crystal, glass, books and furniture. Items ranged from the bizarre to the beautiful. A must visit to... More

It's a private museum and you can see a large collection of glass art from all over the Europe. The tour is guided, but our guide was not speaking English very clearly.

I am so happy that I took this so special tour (happened to be the owner as guide). Such detail in explanations, such a love for the history of glass and the connection with history. A must for everyone. Thank you!!!

Wonderful place. We arrived quite late and were taken on a tour immediately by a wonderful guide, I think she said it was her first week but she was so knowledgable.beautiful collection in a gorgeous old building, maybe would like to have heard more about the building too. Stained glass in particular was stunning. The electricity went in the latter... More

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
