“The best tourist attraction in Malaga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

What a fabulous place, not at all like a "museum", taken around in a small group (4 of us) by a gentleman who has a great love of crystal and glass. It was his own home so the objects were on view in a personal setting. It was amazing and I will never forget the beauty of the crystal chandelier as the light caught it. I had read that it was hard to find so I asked at tourist information at the railway station, he gave me a street map and we walked straight to it.

“Heigh light of the trip to Malaga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

THE place to visit.The private museum at the private residential house of the collector.The owner / collector/tour leader is a acharming Cambridge educated gentelman.The house is absolutely fantastic,the collection is fasinating and he makes you appreciate the art and beauty of glass .You will not pass another vase,glass window or anything without thinking about him ever. A 5 star .pLeas go and support you will agree.The ticket is too cheap 4 Euro?!

“A lovely museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We weren't sure what to expect at this museum, but as other reviewers have said it was a lovely surprise and well worth the visit. If you have any interest in glass it is unmissable; but there is so much else as well, including furniture, paintings and sculptures displayed throughout the proprietor's beautiful home. The owner / guide was passionate about his collection and we couldn't help getting swept up by his enthusiasm. I'm not sure that it deserves its rating as the number one attraction in Malaga, but I will say the museum was one of the best things we did while there.

“Well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

A personal tour by one of the owners. Very reasonable entry charge. A little off the beaten tourist track but worth the effort to find it.

“A pearl beyond price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I walked here one lovely afternoon, and had a very pleasant guided tour in English. It did not matter one jot that I was on my own, and there were no other English speaking viistors, in fact, there were no other visitors at the time. There are some beautiful examples of stained glass, and great displays of various decorative pieces of glass vessels, etc. through the ages. I was also shown the lovely garden. I think I paid something like 3 Euros and felt it was extremely good value for very little money. The building exterior also merits examination.
