Not so much a museum as a lifestyle!
Oct 2021
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.

A Don't Miss Museum!
Sep 2020
***** 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!

We almost did not go. I am glad we did. The art collection in glass is extraordinary. Exquisite stained glass, beautiful setting, great guided tour that greatly enhances the visit.

Its a little off the beaten path so allow some time to find it. The guide was very good and answered all questions and gave us some time at the end to look around on our own. Really interesting museum to visit. Eclectic collection with great background story of owner, who was there when I visited. So many beautiful objects , worth the effort to find.

We enjoyed this museum but I admit that I love glass/crystal. You are guided and all is explained as this is a private collection. You also see lots of interesting furniture on the visit. Worth a stop if you have an interest!

Interesting visit in the glass museum in Malaga, we were able to see items brought during various epochs from all parts of Europe.
As a glass hobist myself I enjoyed the techniques and experiments done in the past centuries, from metals embedded into glass with strange effects, to most modern fused glass pieces. A must see for glass enthusiasts.

History of glass with a guided tour.
Feb 2020
This is a private house museum where owner still lives on premises so guides are there to ensure people see it and learn, but stay in the public areas. Our guide spoke good English and was very knowledgeable. In fact I noticed and heard another guide with a group of French tourists and he spoke French like a native. We love glass and thoroughly enjoyed the history that came along with the various displays. It is a fascinating place with an inexpensive entry fee. Lots of other artifacts and furniture for viewing as well as the glass objects.

A Museum that was really a huge home filled with antiques.
Feb 2020
An eccentric Spanish/Italian/French/British gentleman who owns 5 houses across the continent and is part of the royal families of Europe...and owner of this magnificent 'demeure' gave me the royal tour of the house. Not only are there incredible collections of curiosities, tea sets from his mother and grandmother, huge portraits of family staring down from their frames and so much more, there is this man's personal collection of stained glass worthy in quality and size of hanging in a cathedral. He also has a vast collection of glass goblets and vases dating back to Roman times and more modern pieces by great artists. Everything is back lit to advantage. As interesting as all the beautifully presented pieces were, the man himself and his stories were as much a curiosity. An experience you will never forget!
