Professor Phillips took us on a journey through Europe with the help of family treasures and donated items. This is a fascinating place to visit, not just for the collection of crystal, but for the fountain of information shared. I wish I could have spent hours listening to more of his stories. Don't miss this if you are interested in... More

I really cannot recommend this gorgeous little museum highly enough. We were very lucky in that we just went on the off chance that there would be a guided tour in English & there was one due to start in 15 minutes. Better still, unknown to us, it was some kind of international tourism day so entry was free. The... More

Worth visiting the Museo del Vidrio Y Cristal de Malaga (Museum of glass and crystal). Only a few euros but we got a tour from the founder of the museum and he was very funny and passionate about the museum. Lovely setting in a moorish house, all pieces set in rooms of the period. Worth a visit.

Wonderful preserved old house done in periods, rooms decorated with 17th or 18th century furniture and crystal. They walk you through the history of glass and crystal. How it is made and the skill required, now a lost art basically. All very interesting to me at least. However, the true gem was the guide. Charming British man with a wonderful... More

Quite difficult to find but well worth the effort. Housed in a traditional Malaga house, this amazing collection of glassware, stained glass windows and furniture must be worth a fortune. Even better if you get guided by the owner himself.

You may think you have no real interest in glass, but this will blow your mind as just a wonderful experience. There is real craftsmanship to experience on every level, from the inside of the house itself to all the artifacts within, and not just the glass, which comes from all over the world and from lots of different ages...

A really unique museum put together by 2 Spanish and an English gent who share a passion for glass and crystal. Spent 2 hrs here which was longer than we wanted but really made you appreciate the artistry that was contained in the glassware from BC through to today. All set in a lovely peaceful house. Wonderfully knowledgeable guide

We visited the museum on a whim one morning after seeing the wonderful reviews on trip advisor - we weren't disappointed! Our tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and made us feel very welcome. The collection is small but beautiful - all set out in the gorgeous house that the owners share. Thank you very much for a great morning!

We were lucky enough to be given a guided tour by one of the owners who was so knowledgeable and knew so much about the history of the collection and house. There are some amazing pieces, well worth a visit.

Wasn't sure what to expect but was completely blown away by this place. We had a tour by the owner of the collection, whose enthusiasm was infectious. Lovely afternoon and I would recommend to anyone wanting to see something different when visiting Spain.
